What is the goal of Mission Partners Network Forum?
The goal is to equip mission leaders, trainers, HR people or just people in mission who are keen to learn more about how to equip others in personal support (MPD). Our aim as a group is to equip and connect the equippers in personal support.
We want to see missionary organisations in Europe help each other and their staff reach 100% funding so that Great Commission could be fulfilled and all nations could hear and be able to respond to the Gospel.
Who should attend Network Forum?
It is designed to serve participants from different organisations in their various roles, whether having more or less experience in support raising, who are looking to exchange their experience with others.
The participants should be equippers such as leaders, trainers and coaches who help others to build their teams of partners. The Forum is also for leaders who are involved in policy making. It is recommended that the participants come with two or three colleagues and that they have previously completed a basic MPD training offered by one of the network organisations.
Who is organising the Forum?
The Mission Partners Network Forum is an ad hoc group of people from across Europe who have responsibility for, or a keen interest in, seeing mission organisations well equipped to help their staff understand better what it means to live on a supported basis, both biblically and practically.
It started as an initiative of Agape Europe and is now organised in partnership with key leaders from Ambassadors Football, Communitas International, Friends International, Fusion, Josiah Venture, Navigators, Stewardship, and YWAM.
Has the Forum taken place before?
The first ever Mission Partner Network Forum was held in 2018 and gathered together close to 100 participants from 26 different organisations representing 23 nations.
