This study investigates the concept of Partnership in Mission (PIM) from a historical perspective and evaluates its appropriateness as a current model for mission. The origin and definition of the term, the historical development of PIM in the World Mission Council (WMC) of the Church of Scotland (CoS) and its predecessors are considered. The period under review can be said to begin with the twentieth century missionary movement and the 1910 Edinburgh conference of the International Missionary Council [IMC] and continue until the present time, although the main focus will be on the World Mission Council during the period 1997-2006.
