Partnership is something we long for but often have a difficult time defining. North American churches and organizations are seeking to partner with the global community in ever increasing degrees, yet partnership is often a broad elusive term that can be defined very differently depending on the context.
In this new Missiographic, we have sought to clarify one model for examining and defining our partnerships from North America with the global church. For the purposes of this Missiographic, partnership is defined as “co-operative scaling-relationships focused on creating, maintaining, or strengthening active ministry initiatives.”
We hope that the words, the definitions, and the illustration will help you analyze your current partnerships, and it will lead you to intentionality in developing future partnerships. May your partnerships be focused on the expansion of the Kingdom for the Glory of God among all the nations!
