The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) have a couple of discussion papers up on their web site rethinking about mission. Produced by Garry Marquand (Moderator) and John Daniel (National Mission Enabler) they look at shifting from an institutional model for mission to a network-based one.
From the web site
Please find attached two papers outlining some thinking and possibilities for the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. The first, “New Mission Paradigms” (PDF format) is primarily the work of Garry and is focused on the Presbytery level of our structure, the level at which we believe there is the greatest frustration and weakness. We suggest you open this first to review the introductory material. The second, “From Pentecost to Parousia” (PDF format) is primarily the work of John and focused on the theology of mission for today’s world.
