A ministry of meeting is an alternative to those traditional models of ministry which connote cultural-spiritual superiority. Assuming a global pluralistic community, the model maintains that the church is empowered by the gospel to meet one another and other peoples and cultures in dialogue and mutuality. Elements of the model tested include: theological, educational and developmental methodology, cross-cultural meeting and ministry and spiritual growth through Native American and Christian disciplines. The model's implications for parish ministry in outreach, education and spiritual development are suggested.
