Theology matters for community development because it reminds us that all of life is all for Jesus. The Bible shapes how we see the world, ourselves, and, most importantly, the Lord. The Spirit uses Scripture to change hearts and sustain lifestyles that glorify Christ and honor all peoples. Without a biblical perspective, communities cannot become more like the Kingdom of God.

When leaders learn to understand the Bible in terms of honor and shame, they present the gospel in ways that connect to all aspects of their community’s lives. Request a speaker from Mission ONE for your event below.

“Thought-provoking, redemptive, restorative, renewing, and wonderfully practical.... I believe this will minister to people on many fronts for a long time to come."

Kerry Schottelkorb, President of China Source

“Thought provoking”

"I really appreciated the discussion on how cross-cultural experience and a multicultural understanding of Scripture can enhance one's overall understanding of the Gospel. Very insightful.”

 "I am a career missionary, church planter, Bible translator, and I have been in a lot of teaching sessions over the years, but I just want to say that [Werner's teaching] on Honor and Shame has equaled the best of the best of them. Although many Ethnos360 missionaries have ministered in honor-shame cultures, it is only recently, mostly through [Werner and Mission ONE], that we have been confronted with the Honor-Shame challenge. The thoroughness in teaching, energy, and emotion in delivery, all speak to my heart and mind, and to many others also."

Dell Schultze, Ethnos360
