Helping you approach global missions humbly, ethically, and authentically.
We've heard the critiques of missions.
And so often, they are valid, right, and true. At Kindred Exchange, we are on mission to deconstruct outdated, ineffective missions models and build back up a more modern, humble approach to cross-cultural engagement.
How do we do missions in the most ethical & sustainable way possible?
What does it mean to engage the Body and the Spirit in missions?
We believe it is impossible to separate a person’s physical and spiritual self, and that the two distinct parts of humans develop a whole being pursued by God. That’s why we approach our message of spiritual freedom through the lens of practice in economic freedom.
Why combine business and missions?
The majority of the world’s human exploitation stems from greed and economic disempowerment. We believe that good businesses provide an immediate solution to financial stress that often leads to poor healthcare, education, and unfortunate abuse.
How do we serve well?
So often, even with good intentions to serve, we place ourselves at the center of both mission efforts and community development strategies. When these activities are not informed by the local culture with national voices at the helm, we miss an opportunity to sustain any true transformation in a community. At Kindred Exchange, we encourage those with a cross-cultural business or nonprofit activity to consider the impact of that work through the eyes of the established community where they work.
How do we keep the people we’re serving in the center of our missions design?
It takes practice and intention to remove ourselves from program design while also showing up fully with our experiences and knowledge. We like to employ a human-centered design approach to the way we share our faith, our knowledge, and our experiences across cultures while also posturing ourselves as learners open to receiving the faith, knowledge, and experiences of that culture.
The Impact Of Our Work
We believe business can be a catalyst for sustainable change.
It's through good business that financial burdens are lifted, safe working conditions are established, and authentic relationships are formed. Join us as we pave the way for a more ethical form of impact rooted in humble partnerships and kindred exchanges.
