This book challenges mission agency and church leaders to consider new possibilities and approaches to global mission funding, aside from the traditional model (i.e., missionaries seeking their own funding). The book discusses and evaluates these financial support models that evangelical mission agencies and churches in the Majority World have been using effectively. Examples of these effective models that the book calls “mission funding 2.0” are tentmaking, Business as Mission, the twelve-church model, a “handful of rice” (buhfai tham), and revolving savings for mission. The book also argues for the biblical, contemporary, economic, and strategic roles of Majority World countries in global mission funding.
