Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights changes in organization, discourse, and practice that characterized the missions-to-development trajectory in the United Church during the 1960s and some of the ironies that arose from those changes. Conversely, many conservative Canadian churchgoers in the 1960s favoured a more traditional approach to mission, and to Christianity generally, than that promoted by the leadership of the United Church and other mainline churches. The most striking irony of 'ngoization' in the mainline churches is the timing: Canadian University Service Overseas (CUSO) was founded just as they were beginning to make a dramatic break with historic patterns of mission. During the 1960s the United Church of Canada was able to move further than other Canadian denominations in its advocacy and practice of an expansive concept of development.

Keywords:Canadian university service overseas (CUSO); mainstream Canadian churches; ngoization
