Korean Patron-Client Dynamics in Church Planting in Cambodia
Patronage governs most relationships in Global South cultures. However, regrettably, missionaries rarely recognise this prominent cultural reality. Moreover, misunderstanding patronage creates problems not only for missionaries but also for national pastors. This book shows that when a patron plays a role as a father, he plays a significant role in developing national pastors as church planters and offers an alternative reading of aid dependency as a relational concept rather than an economic one.
