The Globalization of Missions and its Impact on Western Sending Structures with Eldon Porter, Consultant for Global Engagement, Missio Nexus.
The new global paradigm of missions challenges many of the fundamental assumptions associated with the traditional western sending structures. Leading a traditional agency into a position where it can thrive in the new paradigm is a particular challenge. An understanding of both the drivers behind this paradigm shift as well as how principle stake holders are relating globally is essential for an effective transition. The unique role of networks that facilitate global engagement will also be illustrated. Examples will be shared of how both traditional and majority world agencies are responding to the new reality.
