Chapter Summary

United Evangelical Mission (UEM), a formerly German mission organization which in 1996 had restructured to become a mission community of 35 churches on three continents, wanted to become instrumental in starting one or more international congregations in its German region which would serve as symbolic representations of the international character of the body of Christ. The majority of the pentecostal/charismatic churches in the UEM database are less than ten years old. In contrast, most of the European Protestant migrant churches have been existing for 50 years or longer, while Asian Protestant churches were mostly founded about 30 years ago. The overall aim of the UEM program was to establish cooperation between migrant and indigenous churches and true cooperation will not be possible without atleast some understanding of both sides' visions, aims and methods.
