    Additional Info
    What happens when an expatriate missionary is thrust into a context where the standard of living is so divergent that perceived or actual wealth suddenly becomes the strongest draw of attraction? What actual message is communicated through the wordless witness of the Western Christian missionary lifestyle? Is attention to so-called good news now so financially focused that other foundational issues become overshadowed? This issue becomes even more complicated when the missionary arrives clueless about personal privilege, ignorant of the envy of others, and carries the mistaken attitude that others think similarly. SEANET proudly presents Complexities of Money and Missions in Asia for all who are asking such questions. From seven different indigenous and expatriate perspectives this volume deals with the perceptions of money specifically from those seeking to serve obediently in the Buddhist contexts of Asia.

    SEANET serves as a networking forum wherein groups and individuals can meet to reflect and strategize together on topics particular to their collective mission. SEANET does not promote one particular strategy or one particular theology but seeks to learn from models of hope that show what God is doing around the world. Each year the annual SEANET conference brings together over one hundred and fifty practitioners who are privileged to live and serve throughout the Buddhist world. The chapters of this volume represent seven of those voices from the network.

  • Remember The Future


    A primer for churches on sound asset managment by an Episcopal priest and Controller of the Dioceses of New York.

    Remember the Future is a result of years of hands-on consulting work with struggling congregations by Jerry Keucher, who served on the staff of the Diocese of New York for 13 years. Keucher notes that many, if not most, congregations in mainline churches have declined in the past forty years and that this shrinkage in numbers “has deeply affected the psyches” of congregational leaders. Using a positive tone and attitude to help congregations imagine health instead of decline, Keucher offers clear, step-by-step methods and advice on analyzing and managing all aspects of congregational assets.

  • Ministry And Money


    Frank, straightforward guidance for clergy seeking to develop a sound theology of money and skills for church administration, Ministry and Money also puts forth a new strategy for self-care, and a confident approach to managing both personal and congregational finances. Alban Senior Consultant and author Dan Hotchkiss wants to help clergy overcome their own anxieties about money matters so they can help others address the personal, social, and congregational aspects of this challenging and often difficult topic.

    Hotchkiss observes that clergy are anxious about money for all the same reasons other people are and for some special reasons, as well:

    Many people believe that what is “spiritual” excludes money and power.
    Many clergy’s own finances are in difficulty.
    Clergy depend on their congregations for their livelihood.
    And in many congregations, clergy effectiveness may still be judged in financial terms.
    Drawing on the full spectrum of American religious life, Hotchkiss addresses these important issues, offering practical assistance to clergy who wish to become more effective leaders by examining their own unique anxieties and convictions about money.
