Does the Great Commission Apply to Education? / An Interview with Wezi Chibalani, ACU Office Manager / Update and Future Plans
One of the great challenges of any organizational endeavour today is funding. Among those of us who depend on the generosity of the saints in order to leave home and family to serve God and His people at ACU, the biggest challenge we face is seeking support from local churches. Why are so few churches willing to seriously consider ACU as part of their “missionary budget”?
There are, no doubt, multiple and complex reasons. Misconceptions of missions may play a fundamental role. I regularly hear one common but ill-conceived perspective on missionary support. I have been told, too many times, that the only “legitimate” mission of the church is church planting. So churches can’t support educators as missionaries.
