Publisher's Description

There is a lively debate about the mission of the local church and an interest in doing new things or doing things differently. However, when church leaders start to work out the implications of change, they immediately come across real issues such as the time, money and buildings needed and how to make decisions that will change things, yet keep most people on board. "Resourcing Mission" offers the missing link between missiological thinking and the practical theological thinking about the task of mobilising local churches. Helen Cameron discusses questions such as the use of available time and money, different models of income, different models of leadership, the use of buildings, changing patterns of risk and regulation and approaches to decision making. "Resourcing Mission" shows how practical theology and mission and ministry need to work together and draw on each other's resources to strengthen the work of the church.

Editorial Reviews

What a terrific read this is! Helen Cameron weaves together an earthed commitment to church organisations, stimulating biblical insights and exciting theological and sociological reflection, all wrapped up in a readable, engaging script. The result is the most engaging book on mission I've read in years. Make no mistake, Resourcing Mission will quickly become necessary reading for everyone who takes comtemporary Christian mission thinking seriously.
Resourcing Mission is clear, creative practical and deep. It will be immensely helpful to many clergy and congregations.
Helen Cameron has drawn on both her missiological studies and experience of various form of church to produce a welcome and accessible book of practical theology. The wisdom to be gained can help all churches, large and small, well-established or emerging, find their place in God's mission.
