So many institutions are established by mission agencies with well-meaning intentions. The natural compassion of Western affluence sometimes provides an outlet for humanitarian concerns and goals. However, institutions too often become an end unto themselves over time. They lose sight of the original goal - that is, to establish a platform for Gospel ministry toward indigenous church planting. Institutional workers feel burned out and disconnected from any spiritual purposes besides fellowship within their own staff team. How can we help? Challenge, question, and redefine the time, structure, and purposes of the institution. Connect with the local church/es. Disciple and train for indigeneity to replace the Western workers and Western control.
