In 1943, when Partners began working with Christians in China, we pioneered the approach of partnering with indigenous Christian ministries, believing this is the most effective way to evangelize and establish churches. We continue to identify strategic ministries and provide an array of resources that strengthen and grow their work. The result? More than 1,600 churches were planted last year!
We provide financial resources for strategic ministry projects across the globe—from training pastors in China to micro-enterprise loans to women in Ghana. Our core programs include Building the Church, Transforming Communities, and Empowering Women and Children.
In addition to financial resources, Partners enables ministries to strengthen and improve their organizational structure and processes through strategic planning, board governance, financial management, and local income generation.
The vision of Partners International is to see a hurting world transformed by the power and love of Christ. By advancing a global network of partnerships, we envision thousands of growing, vital communities of Christian witness bringing real hope and real change to the least Christian regions of the world.
Together with locally-led ministries that are living out the Great Commission and Great Commandment, we serve the physically deprived and the spiritually hungry in the "hard places" of the world.
Where there is darkness, we bring the light of Christ. Where there is misery and suffering, we bring compassion and relief. Where there are deserts of despair, we create life-sustaining oases of hope.
From Morocco to Malaysia, from Beijing to Bangalore, our passion is to bring real hope and real change through real partnership.
Headquartered in Spokane, Washington, we have more than 120 indigenous ministry partners, and a vibrant community of thousands of U.S. donor partners, churches, and foundations whose efforts are helping us advance God's Kingdom in 57 least Christian countries of the world.
