评估优秀短宣的七个标准

原文标题:Seven Standards of Excellence for Short-Term Missions

作者:Jim Plueddemann,获准翻译

译者注:这是Dr. Plueddemann在宣教基础这门课上发下来的讲义,我觉得很好,翻译给大家。注意在美国基督教文化中,并不是直接传福音才算“短宣”,其他短期事工也笼统称之为“短宣”(Short-Term Mission Trip)。

  1. 以神为中心——神是否在这个活动中受到尊荣?
  2. 以福音为中心——旅程是否直接或间接的布道并且在基督里建立委身的信徒?
  3. 对人敏感——参与者是否在受服务的人群中欣赏和发展他们的恩赐?参与者是否愿意聆听和向受众学习?
  4. 聚焦工场——短宣是否增强当地的事工?是否符合当地事工的战略?
  5. 面向长期——短宣是否能发展长期宣教、更多的祷告或奉献?
  6. 合适的准备——短宣的参与者是否对神对万国的计划有了结,并欣赏当地文化?
  7. 透过跟进——短宣是否帮助差派教会增长对宣教的委身和理解?

原文如下:

    1. God-Centered – Is God honored through this experience?
    2. Gospel-Centered – Will the trip contribute directly or indirectly to evangelism and developing committed followers of Christ?
    3. People-Sensitive – Do participants appreciate and build on the giftedness of those they go to serve? Are they willing to listen and learn from them?
    4. Field-Focused – Will the experience strengthen the ministry on the field? Is the trip actually strategic for the field?
    5. Long-term Orientation – does the trip promote the development of long-term missions, more fervent prayer and sacrificial giving?
    6. Appropriate Preparation – do short-termers gain an knowledge of God’s plan for the nations and an appreciation of cultural values?
    7. Through Follow-up – Does the trip lead to greater understanding and missions commitment by the sending church?

    美国教会怎么传福音,切入点是什么?非常好奇也。

    从小小羊园地过来看的,没想到是浙大的学长。你的文章对我帮助很大,特别是针对我现在面临的问题。你在读神学,准备全时间服侍吗?愿主纪念你的摆上,祝福引导你前面的道路。
