A Just Mission – Laying down power & embracing mutuality

Mekdes Haddis – October 20, 2022


Mekdes was born and raised in Ethiopia and moved to the United States in 2003 to pursue her studies. She has a B.S. in Communications from Liberty University and a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Columbia International University. 
 
After 10+years of developing Discipleship and Outreach strategies in evangelical churches and non-profits, she grew impatient with the lack of mutuality and respect for leadership of those from the global south. To break the cycle of harmful physical and spiritual  impact of missions locally and globally and to elevate the voices of the unheard, Mekdes left her full time ministry role to start JUST MISSIONS. 
 
JUST MISSIONS is a space that elevates diaspora voices and equips western allies to become mutual partners for the work of the gospel. It aims to forge the path of leaving a relational legacy surrounded by a cloud of witnesses. She is now the Executive Coach and actively developing strategies to train individuals and organizations with a fresh look at missions for global impact.
