While studying Spanish, she met her Australian husband and they served for over 30 years in Venezuela with WEC International. Initially involved in church planting, but always were encouraging Venezuelans to be involved in cross-cultural ministry.

      Edward Aw

      Community Vision International, San Tan Valley AZ

      Ed and Rachel have three thrusts to their ministry activities. (1) They train and coach church planters and pastors, helping them to raise up new leaders and reproduce their churches, resulting in transformed lives and communities. This includes many insights into making their ministries more sensitive to local cultures. (2) They are committed to practicing and guiding others in "tent-making", supporting themselves so that they are free to serve communities in areas of the world where authorities may be hostile and churches too weak to support them. (3) They are focused on accomplishing the above two in culturally relevant ways.

    • Lesson 13

      The Spontaneous Multiplication of Churches

      Look beyond institutional features of churches to understand churches as dynamic movements of Christ Himself being followed. Such a view of churches as organic, living things opens up the practicality of seeing them multiply rapidly as movements and also flourish in society bearing the fruit of social transformation. Churches as counter-communities, acting as salt and light, bringing change to their cultures. How movements multiply by connecting with entire families and larger social structures.
