“Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me.”
— Isaiah 50:15
Recently I came across a book that caught me by surprise. Retired Bishop Hwa Yung wrote an excellent critique of the modern ‘leadership’ popularity within the Global Church and World Mission: Leadership or Servanthood?: Walking in the Steps of Jesus.
I’m delighted to welcome my friend, Patrick Fung, to the Asian Access council of reference. Patrick is a seasoned mission leader who started as a medical doctor in mission and then moved toward mission leadership through OMF. Today he leads one of the most historic missions, founded by Hudson Taylor originally known as the China Inland Mission.
“Church planting is moving at the speed of a bullet train with leadership development following on a bicycle.”1
We are living in an era of unprecedented change. What we may not realize is that this includes exciting Kingdom change—rapid church planting and multiplication, throughout the world.
