WAYS TO SERVE IN NEW ENGLAND
Each year we organize a list of project and partnership requests. Can your church help fill any of these ministry needs?
To request a custom placement for a specific location, date or skill set, contact Tim Buehner at 508-393-6013 x222.
Take a Vision Tour
Vision tours allow pastors and mission leaders to see what God is doing, while learning how your church or network of churches can get involved in a partnership. Tours are designed for those who are prayerfully ready to make a partnership connection.
We frequently organize 3-4 day vision tours in different regions of New England. Email us if you are interested in a vision tour.
Partner with a Church
Sixty percent of older churches are plateaued or declining. A partnership can help renew the church body and restore God's vision in a church that is facing challenges.
- Projects Partner Church: Come alongside an established church to concentrate on a project need or strategic event over a period of time. The Project Partner will send leaders ahead of time to help with planning, prayer and logistics. They will then send short-term mission teams, often with the resources needed to conduct the project.
- Prayer Partner Church: Engage in strategic prayer over a period of time. This type of partnership also works well for Sunday School classes and community groups.
- Three-Year Partner Church: Commit to come alongside an existing church and "adopt" them for three years. These churches are dedicated to providing support and resources in order to infuse the partner church with more health and help it grow.
Are you interested in a partnership? We're ready to equip you to establish an effective partnering relationship. Contact us for more information.
We also help facilitate partnerships with church plants. Visit Church Planting Partnership Opportunities to learn more.
