Different people and organizations have different callings from God. As a Christian humanitarian aid organization we team up with local evangelism and discipleship ministries to meet the practical needs of those in Africa. Not only can callings be diverse, but so can strengths. Those different contributions complement one another in advancing the kingdom of God.
The ultimate value of most partnerships among ministries is to increase fruitfulness to advance the kingdom of God. Usually ministries and churches can accomplish more together than separately. For example, ministries can team up to share expertise and expenses to seek to keep the doors open when opposition to Christian efforts arises.
There is a big difference between just talking about something and taking effective action. As you contemplate entering into partnership with others to accomplish God’s purpose, be sure to forge the alliance in ways that make it well worth your time and that of others. God is very pleased when His children work together in unity–especially when they do it well.
We at VISIONS OF HOPE FOR AFRICA invite you to consider joining one of our upcoming mission teams to be the “hands and feet” of Jesus in Africa and beyond.
