EPISODE 34: Do mission trips create dependency?
In this episode we discuss whether or not mission trips create dependency. We also answer a listener's question about whether it’s better to start your own nonprofit or partner with an existing one.
>> In our discussion about mission trips and dependency, we answer questions like:
- Why do people say mission trips create dependency?
- What is dependency?
- Why is dependency dangerous?
- Was Jesus creating dependency by serving and healing others so freely?
- How do we avoid dependency?
>> The purpose of this discussion is to bring awareness to the decisions we make during a mission trip. Ultimately all of us want to make wise decisions when it comes to mission work, and figuring out the balance between “a handout” and “a hand up” is part of that. However, at the end of the day it's important to remember that God is not handcuffed by our mistakes. Even though we may not get it right every time, He is still accomplishing His purposes. Listen to the episode to hear more on this topic.
