We live in a world of great inequality. Issues such as poverty, race and gender raise their heads everywhere and cause untold harm and destruction.

Much of the time we do not think intentionally about how we make decisions in our ministry efforts. This is even truer cross-culturally. If you are an Indian leader, this Missiographic will hopefully provide some perspective on dynamics of decision making in your country. If you are a non-Indian leader, we hope this Missiographic will help you better understand your Indian partners and serve alongside them more effectively.
If the global Christian witness were represented as lights on a Christmas tree, what would that tree look like? Would it be the tree that Jesus Christ desires when he returns?
