Scott Buchanan, his wife Ruth, and their two children, Isabelle and Isaiah, serve in the Philippines. As Christ’s ambassadors they seek to continue His ministry of reconciliation, through obedience to the Great Commission, amongst the poor, marginalised and unreached people groups on the island of Mindoro. Those whom they seek to reach with the Good News of Jesus Christ include: the Mangyan people group (the mountain dwelling indigenous people of Mindoro), incarcerated men and women, impoverished peoples, and sex workers. Underpinning their work are two key values. Firstly, while poverty, injustice, and abuse are significant and heart-breaking issues that are faced within these communities, they are the symptoms of a greater spiritual disease of which the Gospel is the only true cure. Secondly, the local church, God’s collective chosen people, is God’s primary mission strategy to a lost world. Guided by these two values, the Buchanan’s calling is to serve these peoples though the growth and revitalisation of existing indigenous churches – by way of evangelism, relational discipleship and theological equipping. They then seek to indirectly assist in the missional multiplication of these churches through the planting of new Gospel-centred churches amongst other poor, marginalised and unreached peoples.
