It’s ironic, almost sad, that the bulk of international mission still comes out of rich part of the world. The West continues to send resources to the rest of the world in an attempt to teach and ‘do’ leadership development. It’s ironic because of all the places where Christianity needs help, it’s the West where the experts are coming from. The regions where Christianity is exploding are the places where the rules of Western Christianity don’t work and are not applied.
Not to demean good work, but it’s high time that the disintegrating church take its cue and submit itself to the leadership of real multiplying movements in China, India, Iran….
Imagine American church leaders taking instruction from Chinese movement leaders. That would be the day.
