This paper argues for the use of mission as 'transformation' as a more inclusive concept which creates space for dialogue, and yet distinction between theological and humanities schools of thought on what is commonly understood as development and increasingly termed 'transformation.' For this purpose, the essay traces shifts in both secular and missions debates and the call from each respectively for a more holistic approach.
