Missiological Exploration | Missionary Deputation 

Missionary Thomas Irvin & Missionary Keith Stensaas
For many, once this dreadful word leaves one’s mouth, they begin to shutter in fear. Some may even start convulsing or looking for a safe space to hide. The awful word, deputation! In my own experience, I also had an irrational stigma implanted in my mind regarding deputation. But, I was genuinely ignorant on the subject, but I didn’t let my ignorance stop me from expressing my ideas regarding the realities of deputation. In the end, my ignorance, and my desire for relevant knowledge, allowed my wife and me to create a deputation process tailored to our needs.  

As we venture into this conversation, the realities and the fears that surround deputation are further complicated. Deputation can seem intensely fearsome after more than one year of lockdowns, financial instability, social distancing, and political polarization (even with an apolitical institution such as the church). But isn’t that the purpose of the “new normal” - to create a perpetual state of fear? Deputation already comes with immense psychological pressure; that pressure is increased beyond measure in our current dispensation. First, many of the current concerns regarding deputation are naive ideas that are parroted without critical thought. Second, the use of Covid as a tool to polarize and control the world is nothing more than an excuse. Psychological distractions must be overcome through scriptural truth; we must trust God and take him at his word.
