Event description

Description

Missionaries: aliens, providers, or fellow travellers?

Should the majority world be the target of patronage from rich missionaries?

Outside Christian workers who build on foreign presuppositions in work amongst indigenous communities can, especially when using foreign funds and languages, be interpreted as riding roughshod over indigenous sensibilities. True empowerment of local people requires getting alongside them. This necessitates vulnerability to their position and context. Such vulnerability can best be achieved if one shares the Gospel using indigenous languages and utilising local resources.


Anticipated speakers include:

Deborah Bernhard, former church planter in Thailand, focused on overcoming barriers to the gospel in the Buddhist world.

Frank Paul, former missionary in Argentina, author of Mission Without Conquest.

Jim Harries, missionary living in Kenya, author of Vulnerable Mission

Hans Baer, missionary among the Sgaw Karen in Thailand, author of Animistic Worldview and Its Implication on Teaching God’s Word

And more!
