Mission Drift?

by Oddvar Sten Ronsen

The author analyses several aspects that can cause “mission drift” and highlights some of the practical challenges related to combining social action and the proclamation of the gospel to avoid this with respect to the objectives of Christian integral mission. The viability of this new mission concept is tested with special reference to specific microfinance operations as a platform for social action in the Philippines and Thailand.
