‘Vulnerable mission’ as a technical term was devised by a small team in 2007. The issue for which vulnerable mission was formed is to create a way through dependency syndromes. For those working in areas of patron–client cultures where it is too easy to allow a dependency syndrome to develop, how can a vulnerable approach by the one sent be realistically engaged? This paper is an attempt to consider the definition and biblical warrantfor the concept of missional vulnerability. Surveying various biblical scenes even in so brief a paper brings a prophetic challenge.
