What is it?
A classic missions partnership is when a church in one culture partners with a church in another culture to do evangelism, discipleship, training, or holistic ministry. Variations may include the involvement of multiple churches or organizations in the partnership. Healthy Missions Partnerships is an online course that provides an introduction to building, launching and sustaining such partnerships. When believers, churches, and Christian organizations partner in healthy ways, the product of their collaboration is often much greater than what could be accomplished alone. In this course, you’ll learn key principles to apply to your current or future partnership. Course topics include:
- Choosing a partner
- Shared vision, goals, and structures
- Partnership roles and responsibilities
- Communication and conflict resolution for sustainability
- Accountability, review, and revision
