What is Partnership Missions?
Partnership missions provides opportunities to live out God’s call for fellowship with new friends down the street and around the world. It is an investment in our partners, ourselves and the church sending us as we explore how God is at work through our partners.
There are multiple ways to experience partnership missions:
- Choose a project
- Join another team
- Explore a relationship with a people group
The Mission Development Staff can help you explore opportunities to develop relationships with our global partners. Whether you go, send a team or invite a partnership team to join you in ministry, we can help!
A mission partnership can be a most rewarding experience for both sides. A partnership, by very nature, implies that two entities are working together toward a common goal. The fruit of a mission partnership comes when both groups work together to accomplish the mission.
Virginia Baptists have a long history of developing partnerships around the world. Explore our current partnerships:
Impreuna pentru ceilalti! Together For Others!
The Baptist Union of Romania and the Baptist General Association of Virginia are Together For Others in a partnership through the autumn of 2018.
Encouraging each other to go outside the walls of our churches and make a difference in the community for God’s Kingdom, we are focusing on these areas:
- Youth ministry training and experiential learning for young leaders
- Local missions based on the resources of the local church
- Ministry to those affected by human trafficking
- Ministry among the Roma People
- Evangelism and church-planting
As we build awareness of opportunities and needs in our communities there will be several pilot projects in the areas of youth ministry training, ministry with the Roma, awareness of human trafficking and local missions.
Virginia Baptists and Southwest Virginia associations (Clinch Valley, Powell River and Wise) are emphasizing missions projects in the Lee, Scott and Wise counties of Southwest Virginia.
