What does it mean to partner with us?
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Ethnos360 focuses on reaching the 2,500 people groups with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by:
- Clearly presenting the Gospel to people who have no prior knowledge of the God of the Bible.
- Discipling new believers.
- Planting churches and nurturing them to maturity.
- Partnering with tribal churches to reach other villages and other tribes.
God’s plan includes you as part of this mission. When you partner with us you are helping to expand the reach of the Gospel. When you pray for God’s work… when you give to God through our ministry… you are investing resources that God has given you in His work.
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
We are encouraged to hear about all that God is doing in your life, both good and bad circumstances. This ministry is not about how God is using us but how we are both “fellow shipping in the gospel” to grow in our relationship with Christ. This is a partnership where both you and us are in fellowship, encouraging one another to pursue Christ with all of our heart.
For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
1 Corinthians 3:9
By partnering with us in our ministry at New Tribes Mission means that this is actually your ministry too. As a follower of Christ we are all called to share the good news of God’s redemption through Jesus Christ to everyone we meet. We are on the same team just with different roles to play. Your role is no less important than others who pray for missionaries, who provide financial resources for missionaries, who maintain computer systems and networks or those that are in leadership of the mission, they all are to glorify God alone.
Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
We want you to be blessed by opportunities not simply to pray or give, but to grow and serve Him together. This reflects God’s will for you to experience the joy and blessing of walking with Him.
May your partnership in this ministry flow from a heart overflowing with gratitude for God’s gift of grace, and may you be richly blessed by the Giver of all good things.
…and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
As you partner with us we desire to intercede on your behalf as you do the same for us. Prayers make a difference when our hearts are united with God’s as we pray on the behalf of others (Daniel 9). We are all in a battle and need God to work and move in our lives. Prayer should not be seen as our means of getting God to do our will on earth, but rather as a means of getting God’s will done on earth. God’s wisdom far exceeds our own.
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
It is important to understand that through your giving you are actually giving to the Lord and His work, not us personally. Partnership Development is a matter of obedience to God’s word and calling, not of following our feelings. God has burdened our hearts to to be a part of this ministry and we are confident that He will provide everything we need to fulfill our ministry, including emotional strength and perseverance.
