The last 25 years have seen a remarkable shift of the profile of mission.
For many years it was a domain of people from Western countries going to the rest of the world to bring the good news. Today, we see a much greater movement from countries which until recently were missionary-receiving countries becoming missionary-sending countries. Emerging mission agencies in these countries are looking for models of sustainable and effective mission, resulting in fruitful partnerships between old and new groups. These partnership projects provide the funds to facilitate such partnerships.
