Welcome

Steef and Tineke lived in South Africa with their four children for 8 years. In 2006 they came back as a family, but Steef kept on traveling to teach his courses on mission awareness throughout Africa. Now that the children are all out of the house and having families of their own, they have decided to work in missions together again.

On this website you can read about their adventures, news when traveling as a blog, and Steef's articles on Bible based missiology. 

May you be blessed as you read on...

In this chapter we look at five of these: firstly appointment of church leaders; secondly encouragement of missionaries; thirdly care for missionaries; fourthly co-existence of diverse missional ministries and finally issues of second- and third-generation believers.

Regarding the appointment of church leadership by the church-planting missionaries, we learn that self-styled leadership does not work, because leaders are called by God. They become visible as leaders, because they lead, but before they do they must be tested in different areas. Then they are to be acknowledged and appointed publicly.

Scripture reference

Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith … Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust (Acts 14:21-23)
