Often missionaries are viewed as the “experts”, whether they like it or not. How can they be perceived as simply part of the team, serving alongside local believers?

In Episode 3 of the AccessTruth Podcast, language consultant Mike Griffis speaks candidly with Paul about common assumptions and misconceptions in mission, touching on team work and culture and language learning, as he shares his experience of working alongside local leaders in PNG.

Paul and his wife, Linda, spent 11 years in Papua New Guinea involved in pioneering church planting in an isolated people group. They were privileged to see God plant a number of churches in that area that continue to thrive today. During the time there, they headed up a translation team that produced a New Testament in the local language. After leaving PNG, Paul and Linda worked for 12 years in leadership and consultative roles with an international mission agency. Today they continue to provide church planting guidance for a number of different teams engaged in some of the world’s most challenging contexts. They are passionate about seeing churches planted that are well equipped to carry on for future generations.
