Bad Practices in Missions
This session focusses on helping us understand the ills of the Disciple Making Model (DMM) and Church Planting Movements (CPMs).
Cody Cunningham and his wife, Margaret, serve as missionaries in Kenya with Reaching and Teaching International Ministries. They have three children: Josiah, Charlotte, and Levi. Cody is partnering with local churches and associations to provide theological training for pastors around Kenya. Prior to moving to the country, Cody served as one of the pastors of Immanuel Community Church in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Historical Theology from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, which is located in Kansas City, Missouri.
The focus of this session is placing ourselves in the history of missions. As the African church, we have gotten used to receiving missionaries, but we have not grown to see ourselves as mandated to send them out ourselves.
