A partnership is more than sending short-term teams. On a local, national, and international level we take a three-phase approach to partnership. We want to pray for partners, we want to provide support for partners, and we want to participate in ministry with partners.
Prayer is an integral part of ministry and a key piece of each of our strategic partnerships. We as a church want to be in prayer for local, national, and international partners as they serve with compassion and offer real hope in their particular context. Below are three specific things you can pray about for each of our local, national, and international partners.
- Strength to carry out ministry
- For gospel impact
- For disciples to be made
As we develop partnerships we will provide specific resources to equip the saints for the work of ministry. The provision could play out in the form of any of the following.
- Financial resources
- Specific items needed for the work of ministry
- Encouragement for the partner
- Specific types of care based on the exact needs
We participate in ministry with our partners by sending short-term teams. Short-term teams are trips of less than 2 months where you will walk alongside on-the-ground partners to carry out the work of ministry. Find out more about short-term teams by visiting our mission trip page.
