A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR SUSTAINING CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

Rationale

Not restricted to Africa even though the continent is highlighted

Ministry pursuits, by old established mission agencies, to reach the people living in the 10/40 window may take money away from sub-Sahara Africa and other places. That portion of the 10/40 window which rests in the continent of Africa can best be reached by sub-Sahara Africans due to a variety of reasons that could work to advantage (inclusive of but not necessarily limited to cultural, historical, kinship, geographical, climatologically and relational ties).

Sub-Sahara Africa is particularly susceptible to loss of ministry funding from outside sources partly
because there may be the perception that Africa has been evangelized long enough so it is now time to
move on to some other places.

 
Sub-Sahara Africa is now being heavily impacted and subsidized by
non-evangelical religious groups
of several varieties.  In fact, many donations are coming from certain North African countries to influence
the minds of sub-Sahara Africans, and that influence is not toward Christianity.
                                                                             
God has ordained that the man be the head of his family. Placed under
that headship is the responsibility to provide the basic necessities of life for his wife and children.

Historically most donations from developed countries have been targeted for ministries based on the presence of

an expatriate or a well-known indigenous pastor or ministry head in the developing country.

This approach has considerable merit and has stood the test of time but there is a huge downside.  The downside is that the donations most often stop or significantly diminish at departure of the expatriate or death of the indigenous leader, thereby causing sound ministries to collapse or become dysfunctional.                                    

We do not want to be deceived to think that money will always be available to flow freely from the United States and other developed countries into developing countries.

The MMED conceptualized business ventures will be owned and managed by indigenous people.

Therefore, a steady stream of funding will be available to help support ministries for as long as the business remains profitable.
