A New Day for Church Missions

You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day or you can teach a man to fish and feed him for life…as the saying goes. Historically, church missions has led the way in selflessly giving fish away to people less fortunate. But today’s world is crying for new approaches to tackling societal problems and the effects of poverty. Significant Matters believes the church and other faith-based groups can play a key role in creating and leading new approaches to what it means to “teach a man to fish.”

Watch this video about the “four buckets” of Church Missions, the tensions that exists between them and what it’s going to take to move missions forward in the 21st Century.

Missional leadership in the past has been able to focus and define missions through one or two of these buckets. But today missions is experiencing an ongoing struggle between these four buckets trying to understand, serve, fund, measure and balance each one against the needs and demands of the other three. In the future, it will not be enough to simply manage and mitigate the different needs between these four components; we must understand, lead, evaluate and integrate all four into an overall comprehensive missional strategy.
