Kingdom outposts: a church-based theology of relief and development with a demonstration project in Haiti
Dru A Dodson
Relief and development (R & D) is best understood as a forgotten part of Jesus' gospel of the kingdom. A storied, church-based biblical theology of R & D traces the themes of God, His people, and His land through the scripture. The thesis is developed that the kingdom advances over the earth through the apostolic establishment of new kingdom communities, who function with a kingdom economics, i.e., kingdom outposts. Kingdom outposts are the locus of R & D. Haiti suffers extreme poverty in spite of decades of evangelism and conventional R & D. A R & D project in Haiti is assessed in light of the theology of kingdom outposts.
