Funding Spontaneous Expansion
Addressing the failing global relief and development system, of which Christian NGOs are deeply integrated, this encyclical carefully examines the New Testament principles on which a whole new approach to relief and development should be built. It proposes that God’s plan for the inauguration and growth of His kingdom is the Church—more specifically, complex networks of churches continuing to grow and spontaneously multiply, city by city, town by town, village by village. These complex networks of churches, led by apostolic teams, are God’s distribution system for the resources required to fund their expansion.
