ReachGlobal is partnership driven
Carrying out the Great Commission in partnership with local churches in the U.S., national partners and other evangelical organizations, is what ReachGlobal is about. We recognize the biblical value of healthy cooperation with national partners. This includes the avoidance of paternalistic attitudes and a willingness to appropriately share in ministry decisions that affect both parties.
What is a partnership?
A relationship between two or more interdependent churches or organizations that pray, plan, leverage resources, and intentionally work together to achieve the shared vision God has given them to advance His Kingdom, in ways they could not accomplish alone. Learn more
One size does not fit all
Every partnership looks different because the vision, the partners, and the ministry context vary with every partnership.
Here's a simple breakdown of various types of partnerships:
A simple partnership
This may be a single church linking up with a sister church or ReachGlobal team in another country, or it might be several churches partnering together with the same sister church or ReachGlobal team, yet operating independently from each other.
A partnership network
A group of churches that share resources and encourage one another but do not work together on the same projects and initiatives.
A partnership where multiple churches and/or organizations work together on shared projects and initiatives to accomplish a shared vision.
No matter the type, every partnership has the potential to make a powerful impact for the gospel. And with every partnership there are some key principles that will make the partnership healthy.
