The article focuses on the new mission affirmation by World Council of Churches (WCC). The author stated that several events like migration, economic globalization, changes in Soviet Bloc, changes in ecclesial landscape and the collapse of Berlin Wall which took place during the last three decades have changed the context of evangelism and mission. The direction of missionary movement is also changed as more than 70 percent of christians live in global south. The ecumenial missiology has not changed much since 1982 and concepts like liberation theology's influence seem old-fashioned.
