Cultural Change and the Church For many years, cross-cultural missions were directed to people in the countries of their birth, generally in Majority World areas. Foreigners present among or around the intended focus of ministry were not viewed as part of mission ministry. However, diaspora missions intentionally focuses on these peoples. Diaspora Missiology will help you understand the dynamics behind this accelerated movement of peoples from one region to another, and biblical principles and precedents that guide ministry today. This book also includes the application of social and communication studies, as well as actual cases of ministry to and with diaspora peoples. The chapters in this book show from the creation mandate in Genesis to the explanations of Paul in Acts 17, God meets individuals and nations in the midst of their journeys, alternately blessing, showing himself, and protecting his people through movement. It seems that God is orchestrating global migration with a view to blessing humanity, populating his creation, and drawing people to himself. This book will aid us in understanding and interacting ministerially with the scattered peoples of the world.
