Better Together: Sending Missionaries and National Partners (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Jul 5, 2022
Missionaries and national church leaders are better together. Nationals teach missionaries about the culture and context they’re serving in. Missionaries from the West are able to bring experience in church planting and meld that together with the vision of national partners for a better overall ministry.

In order for Western missionaries to have impact in around the world, we have to take partnership and collaboration seriously. National partners are asking Western churches to send missionaries to work alongside them in planting churches. How will we respond to their plea?
