John Wesley Haley and Building the Indigenous Church: Reflections on Self-Determination in Twentieth Century Burundi
A relatively unknown Canadian Free Methodist minister, J. W. Haley (1878-1951) :served, along with his family, as a church-planter and pastor in Saskatchewan and :Ontario as well as a missionary in Mozambique and South Africa (1902-1934): finally initiating new ministry in Burundi and Rwanda (1935-1946).
Following a conventional missionary career in Southern Africa, Haley was challenged :by the work of Roland Allen and others regarding the indigenous church building :model. In the early 1930s, in his fifties, Haley explored and then initiated a new :ministry model in Ruanda-Urundi (a Belgian protectorate) seeking to build an :indigenous church ldquo:right from the beginning. rdquo:
At the heart of this book is a manuscript on building the indigenous church. A :featured speaker at the 1949 EFMA Conference in Chicago, Haley spoke from his :experience of respecting the work of the Holy Spirit in empowering local ministry :initiative, at a time of unprecedented turmoil on the international missionary stage. :Haley seems to have sat down to flesh out his principles and practice in writing, :following that speaking engagement, and was working on this previously unpublished :manuscript at the time of his death.
The :book also features an overview of Haley rsquo:s life and missionary career, an update on :the present ministry of e Free Methodist Church in Burundi, and an examination :of Haley rsquo:s contemporary influences in the manuscript with reflection from a current :missiological perspective.
