I am drawing your attention to Dr Peter White's research article below:
The article begins with a description of the Ghanaian mission strategic plan, their spiritual approach to mission, and then proceeds with other approaches in the light of Walls’ ‘five marks of mission’ (i.e. evangelism, discipleship, responding to the social needs of people through love, transforming the unjust structures of society, and safeguarding the integrity of creation) and Krintzinger’s (and others’) holistic mission approach (i.e. kerygmatic, diaconal, fellowship, and liturgical). This article argues that a mission should be approached with a careful strategy.
Merriam-Webster defines stewardship as the act of conducting, supervising, or managing something; especially: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care.
A steward is also a servant who thinks in terms of their duties as being indebted, so to speak, to their master/ mistress.
The bible teaches that ... But whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant. 27 And whoever wants to be first must be your slave, just as the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:26-28).
