Getting Ahead of the Spirit? The Techniques of Contemporary Mission Movements


  • John Span Mukhanyo Theological College, South Africa


The literature on contemporary mission movements under the umbrella of “Kingdom Movements” makes copious references to the person and work of the Holy Spirit. At first glance, then, movement methodologies appear to follow the Biblical mandate to be “led by the Spirit.” However, this article argues that such methodologies, represented here by the CAMEL method of evangelism, for all their zeal for outreach to Muslims are, in effect, getting ahead of the Spirit.
