Presentation Abstract

Christianity, like other world religions, owes a great deal of its spread to itinerant trades- and craftsmen who shared their religion wherever they went. In the twenty-first century the same holds true as a new breed of missionaries carry along their tentmaking, professional skills, as the Apostle Paul did centuries ago. Although the ministry of tentmakers in the Adventist Church is still at its nascent stage, its presence and success bear theological and missiological implications worthy of consideration. This paper will explore the nature and significance of tentmaking, and examine how it poses a challenge to missiological and theological paradigms in the church, and offer recommendations for its success.
