KNOETZE, Hannes (JJ). Missionary diaconate: Hope for migrated people. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.41, n.1, pp.40-52. ISSN 2312-878X.

This paper will discuss migration from a missional diaconate ministry with specific focus on koinonia and the importance thereof for the Kingdom, church and society. The point of departure being that migration is not a foreign concept to the Bible or Christianity. From the earliest days in the Old Testament and throughout the Bible, believers in the Trinitarian God are described as "strangers in this world" (1 Peter). The paper will focus on the concepts of kyrugma/mission, diaconia and koinonia, as the three dimensions of mission (Kritzinger 1998:34-36) and the relation between them. Lastly, the missionary deaconate as a ministry of hope is discussed.

Palabras clave : Migration; missionary diaconate; kyrugma/mission; diaconia; koinonia; hope.
