Associational Partnerships is one way the convention fulfills its purpose of serving alongside local churches. We train and resource current, new and potential associational staff and serve as a liaison for churches and associations.
The Associational Partnerships ministry helps associations fill staff positions. If you are interested in associational ministry, send us a resume and one-page document outlining your spiritual calling to be an associational missionary/staff member, and a one-page document sharing your philosophy of associational ministry. Please include some thoughts regarding the type of association, such as rural or urban, in which you see your gifts most closely fitting.
Another resource available to your association is MissionInsite demographics. With MissionInsite, you can learn about the demographics of people in and near your association, and you can use this information to more effectively minister to congregations or to help guide a new church launch.
“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone.”
