The twenty-first-century saw the considerable rise of the movement of peoples largely due to the structures and processes of globalization. The gifts and challenges associated with the massive flow of people on the move, almost half of whom are Christians, constitute a locus for exploring Christian mission and ministry. The following text explores some of the faces of Christian mission and ministry as a result of, or in response to, the gifts and challenges posed by contemporary human mobility. The text shows how an authentically inclusive church that works for justice, particularly for the most vulnerable migrants, constitutes the key expression of Christian mission and ministry in the context of global migration.
