Partnership Essentials

A Unified Church


The potential for kingdom impact through church and mission agency partnerships abounds, especially as both seek to spread the gospel worldwide. However, organizations and churches should proceed in wisdom and discernment. In this session from Missio Nexus' On Mission webinar, John Becker, Director of Ministries for AIM, African Inland Mission and is the International Coordinator for the Vision 5:9 Network, draws from his experience of forming partnerships with various missions agencies to offer practical advice to churches and organizations seeking partnership.



John said partnerships bring about God's purposes and demonstrate Christ to a world that needs Him. He made a case for developing a clear vision that understands the need, clarifies the need and how to fulfill it, places all faith in God, and expresses the urgency to do something about the need.

When we work together, we bring God glory and people hear the gospel. Collaborate with churches, organizations, and missionaries to come up with a partnership strategy. Develop a clear, well-communicated vision and strive to fulfill your vision together. Share resources and hold each other accountable. Trust God to move through your efforts to reach and serve those who need Him.
