Worth Keeping Part 3

2007
Part III of IV. The whole idea of Worth Keeping is to look for best practice in missionary retention. In this book, we present that best practice very positively and constructively, but we also seek to help you discern between bad and good. Indeed, going a stage further, we need the courage to choose to go for the best; rather than to simply accept what may already be okay, even good. May we have the courage to review, examine and react upon our current practice. Let us retain, renew and protect best practice where it already exists.

Learning to be a Missionary


The authors apply the skill acquisition model developed by education philosopher Hubert Dreyfus to the development of effective cross-cultural ministry practitioners -- missionaries. This model sets forth five stages in the process by which people acquire skill in particular activities or professions. The authors suggest that the problem of missionary attrition may have direct correspondence to a lack of critical skill acquisition.

Internationalizing Missionary Training Part 1/3

1991
How is the missionary force for the twenty-first Century to be trained? This is the challenge that emerges from this provocative book as it focuses on the task of effective missionary training. Western missions have tended to place most of their training emphasis on schooling and formal education-- witness the number of Bible schools, Christian colleges and theological seminaries that offer everything from a B.A. to a Ph. D. in missions/missiology. But the training concerns expressed by non-Western leaders from Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, and the Middle East offer an alternative. While not dismissing the contribution of formal education, most of the newer training programmes are committed to a greater balance between formal, non-formal and informal education. Can the West learn from these insights? We have traditionally tended to think the opposite. But in the case of the training of missionaries, perhaps it is time for a critical re-examination of what we are attempting to do and why we do it.

Integral Ministry Training Design and Evaluation

2006
This new book summarizes many years of practice and evaluation, incubation and reflection on the how to train/equip/shape women and men for ministry, whether within cultures or cross-culturally. The book applies equally to all kinds of training centers, programs and institutions, whether they focus on non-formal or totally formal education. All the writers of this book, and I join them (educators, program developers and reflective practitioners), agree on the imperative core issues that must characterize the best of integral ministry training— whether within culture or cross-culture, whether close or far, whether with mother tongue or as a result of learning a new language. The book builds on our previous publications, but it clearly moves the agenda forward with boldness, challenging again some of the treasured assumptions we have defended regarding training/equipping of called and gifted servants for ministry.

A Call for Co-operation and Partnership

1997
One of the most fascinating aspects of modern mission is the emergence of ever new agencies and initiatives, in the old mission sending countries and especially in the new sending countries of Latin America, Africa and Asia. With their specialised ministries they grasp the opportunities of the day with unseen flexibility and creativity. A second aspect of modern mission is the growing trend towards co-operation and merger of organisations, the development of strategic alliances and partnerships for increased efficiency and good stewardship in order to make best use of our (limited) resources. How do these two contrasting trends affect global mission, the care for missionaries and missionary attrition, the premature return of workers from the field?
