The development of missionary ecclesiology in the modem era can be divided into three eras: a) The transplantation era, in which Western churches exported and implanted their church structures into the Third World; b) The partnership era, in which there was a growing awareness that 'sending' and 'receiving' churches needed each other; c) The development era, in which a missionary ecclesiology declined since inter-church aid replaced mission.
