Mekdes Haddis is a sought after Millennial African Missional thought leader whose voice is challenging the Church to undo its “missions as usual” ethos. Her work is a clarion call to redefine missions from charity giving to disciple making and justice seeking.

In 2020 Mekdes created an online community “Just Missions” with the purpose of helping missionaries, receivers of missionaries and ministry leaders engage with one another on an open platform and discuss the harmful effects of western missions.


The group birthed her book A Just Mission: Laying Down Power and Embracing Mutuality. It also gave westerners the chance to hear from the receivers of missions without the financial power dynamic that typically robs them from openly discussing the truth. Her hope is that these conversations will lead to a wholesome method of supporting and equipping local churches and their leaders without the focus being on the one who is sent but rather the ones God wants them to reach.  


In 2024 she launched​ "The Mutuality Lab" a restorative and sustainable way to be on mission.


Connect with hundreds of other like-minded pastors, ministry leaders, donors interested to support diaspora led efforts in THE MUTUALITY LAB.

Together, we’ll dive into the hard stuff — we'll identify power dynamics, build trust and mutually establish a global impact of short and long term missions — and we’ll discover God’s heart for His global church through the lens of scripture.

When Mekdes talks, I listen. When she writes, I read. It’s that simple. Her cross cultural experience, biblical wisdom, and personal godliness make her a much needed voice in the body of Christ. I’m thankful that the broader Church now has the opportunity to learn from her like I have!
