Partnerships


Church / Agency Partnership
Following are the basic components of a formal partnership between a local church and a sending agency.  All names of church, agency and unreached people have been removed for security reasons.

In 1990 some members from a local church in the United States joined a short-term trip to an unreached people. As a result, the church began to develop a vision and commitment to the people.  In 1992 the church formally adopted the people group and formed a partnership with the agency. In the ensuing years a small team of church members have been approved and trained by the agency for field missionary service to the church's adopted people. The church and agency together facilitate the process for  individuals from the church who wish to become missionaries to this people group.

Following are some key components of the Church/Agency Partnership development and structure.

The Vision
To plan and work together to reach this people group with the gospel of Jesus Christ to the end that a contextualized, indigenous, self-supporting, self-sustaining and self-propagating community of followers of Jesus might emerge among these people.
