The delivery model for missions is changing. It is not that certain things are being taken away, but rather, the Lord is adding to an initial model. The model is going to be redefined and emerge as a business and investment model, whereby missions will be combined with business and investment. This mechanism will also give entrance to the gospel in such nations as those of the Middle East and other regions that are antagonistic to the gospel. The purpose is the economic upliftment of the people and their training. Where we previously had mission stations that were purely focused on going into the bush and trying to preach the gospel, they are now, through business and investment, bringing employment, entrepreneurship, business and investment opportunities to the local people. Through this the gospel, whether it is in hidden form or being allowed to be preached openly, will be funded in those nations. This will happen because of mind-set changes in the foreign sending nations. The traditional countries that have been sending missionaries for many decades are going to re-evaluate, mainly due to their own problems at home. Their own churches are struggling for survival in the present model. A whole generation is going to emerge that will be affected on a greater level through the combination of the “business and church” model.
