Never before was there a more momentous time to examine the assertions of Christian witness than the dawning of the 21st century. Waves of change are sweeping across contexts of mission and missiology. In several countries across Africa unprecedented change continues with political, economic, environmental and social disorientation. Many changes bring disaster and devastation yet, there are some transformations, which bring renewal and rejuvenation. I trust that this change of editorship will be favourable and constructive, and not, distressful for SAMS and the journal. I want to place on record my thanks to the Secretary General of SAMS Prof. Nico Botha for his support, encouragement and vote of confidence in my role as editor. The nature of support from Botha was certainly a significant contributing factor to my academic and leadership formation.
