God’s story – who He is and what He is doing – is so much bigger than just our community of faith. In fact, it’s global! Through our Global Partnerships we have the opportunity to be involved in the big picture. We have partnered with individuals and ministries in the U.S. and around the world that share the same heart we have; to love God and love others. Our strategy of investment is simple: Pray, Give, Go.
Pray. Every Sunday we spotlight one of our Global Partners to pray for them together. You are encouraged to take it beyond Sunday and pray for them the whole week through. Pick up one of our cool prayer cards in the lobby that shows our current year’s partners.
Give. Beyond simply saying that we believe in what God is doing in another part of the world, we get to actually help make it happen. Through investing some of the resources that God has given to us, we can help change a life forever. The return on that investment is eternal!
Go. Each year, there is at least one opportunity for you to actually go and personally invest yourself in the lives of other people groups. These trips are truly life changing, for you and those you serve!
No matter how you choose to invest, we invite and encourage you to be involved. We know that there are a lot of voices that are competing for your resources. Being involved takes being intentional. So much of what we pour ourselves into is fleeting and disappears, but it doesn’t have to be that way! By choosing to invest yourself here, you are choosing an investment that will last!
Look for our Global Partners Convention in March on the following three Sundays: March 3, 10 and 17, 2013. This focus provides updates from the field about what is currently happening in many of the places where we’re involved. It also gives you a chance to get to know some of the people involved in being our partners as they visit us during this time!
