Transformational Partnerships Church To Organization

A supplemental eBook for Missional Moves (Exponential Signature Series, Zondervan)

Making disciples is a team sport. If a local church wants to disciple a neighborhood, community or city, they can’t do it alone. That kind of community transformation will require the local church to partner with players from every domain of society, including parachurch organizations, NGO’s, business, school corporations, healthcare providers and government. If your church has a vision big enough to believe the Kingdom impacts all these areas, then high levels of partnership skills will be required.

They don’t teach you this stuff in seminary. You only learn this through blood, sweat and tears on the frontlines. Granger Community Church has seen thousands move out on mission, culminating in redemptive movements both locally and globally. From Monroe Circle Community Center, a hub for neighborhood renewal in Granger’s inner city, to a movement of more than 1,000 reproducing churches in India that include more than 120,000 people.

Practical Help for Partnership with Organizations, Businesses and Government.
In this eBook, you’ll discover hard-fought lessons like:

  • How to define shared mission with players from every domain of society without compromising the mission of the church.
  • Some of the biggest mistakes we’ve made working with organizations and how to avoid them.
  • Practical tools we’ve used (like a Partnership Checklist and MOU’s) that build the right foundation for a long-term, high-impact partnership.
  • How to define the right kind of relationship with each partner.
