A key character in this book attempts to move beyond business as usual, but fails in the end. The purpose of this book is to challenge assemblies, agencies, and academia-at home and abroad-to work together in creative partnerships to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission through well-trained cross-cultural Christian workers. The need for creative partnerships has never been greater than it is today. Resources around the world, human and financial, are in short supply. Stewardship faithfulness demands that expatriate and not-Western pastors, missions committees, missions executives, educators, and trainers on the formal and non-formal levels pull together rather than pull apart. The purpose of this book is to encourage expatriates and non-Westerners involved in missions to expand God's Kingdom through the formation of creative partnerships. It attempts to accomplish this by demonstrating: (1) the complexity of cross-cultural ministry; (2) the need to become a learner before becoming a cross-cultural social worker, evangelist, disciple, or church planter; and (3) that the task is achievable through the synergistic efforts of all ethnic groups.
