Church and Missions Agencies as Partners

Work Together for God's Glory

Some missionaries venture overseas or to a national location through church support, while others go through an agency. Is there a way for churches and agencies to work together? In this session from Missio Nexus' On Mission webinar, Bob Blincoe, President of Frontiers USA,  talks about the importance of churches and agencies working together to raise support, send missionaries, and plant churches. He explains a way to form partnerships to equip and send missionaries from a local church.

Bob said churches increasingly seek to plant churches nationally and internationally. He claimed the best way to utilize the resources of missions agencies, churches should form formal partnerships. These partnerships have the potential to further the gospel and bring glory to God.
