We are very aware that the effectiveness of ministry in the different countries in which we serve is due to the prayer ministry and practical support of faithful supporters here at home. Those on the ‘front line’ are blessed, encouraged, and equipped through the involvement of those ‘at home’, who are moved to help by the Holy Spirit.
For this reason SGA is so thankful for the many individuals, churches, and prayer groups which have developed a partnership that is deep and meaningful. This has resulted in intercessory prayer, dedicated support, genuine encouragement, and incredible generosity, which enables the Mission to support many worthy projects. Everything we do becomes possible due to our partners' faithful commitment to the ministry!
The idea of partnership in mission is nothing new. Working in partnership was a consistent feature of ministry in the New Testament church. SGA considers ‘Home Partnership’ as a way of enabling and encouraging collaboration between believers and the Mission’s vision to proclaim Christ’s love and offer of Salvation, and to promote church planting and growth.
However, ‘Home Partnership’ is a two-way blessing. While lasting blessing has flowed from these Islands to reach Eastern Europe, Central Asia and more recently Far East Russia, pastors and missionary secretaries at home have expressed a richness of blessing experienced through partnership in Mission with SGA.
