Funding Gods Mission: Towards a Missiology of Generosity

Kirk J Franklin, Cornelius J.P. Niemandt


The issues of generosity, funding, raising funds and managing funds in Gods mission are investigated. First of all, we conduct a literature survey of the themes of poverty, wealth, generosity, giving and stewardship. This provides theological and missiological perspectives that contribute to the development of the themes. Secondly, outcomes from a case study of five missiological consultations, facilitated by the Wycliffe Global Alliance on the topic of funding Gods mission, resulted in information that contributed to the topic. The common experiences that emerged from the consultations provided the foundation for the Wycliffe Global Alliances Principles for Funding. These principles defined the groundwork for generosity such that the funding of Gods mission becomes a reality of the global church. Finally, the Principles for Funding are compared with the Lausanne Standards, observations from the World Council of Churches Together Towards Life and material from the Edinburgh 2010 Conference.
