Our Mission and Values
MDE’s mission is to provide mature believers with opportunities and resources that encourage and empower them to utilize their vocational or business skills and experience in the marketplaces of unreached communities for the purpose of disciple-making and church planting.
MDE’s vision is to see thousands of healthy, mature believers taking the presence and the message of Jesus Christ to unreached communities in and through the “marketplaces” of the world.
MDE adds value to global missions by casting vision for the marketplace missions strategy and by providing believers with the opportunities, resources, support, and accountability they need to use their vocational and business skills and passions to team with others in making disciples and planting healthy, reproducing churches through the natural relationships that flow from working and living in authentic ways in unreached communities.
We will promote and strive for the following values:
Endeavouring to be always mindful of God’s mandate for integrity and the longing in the world for openness and honesty in relationships.
Accomplishing our goals in order to see an actual transformation in each community we engage.
Meeting our goals competently, knowing that we must manage God’s resources well.
Participating with others, drawing on their strengths and experiences.
Seeking enterprises that may be utilized by nationals themselves among the least reached.
Being sensitive to the time and needs of others.
Looking for community transformation to continue long after MDE disengages.
