Every February at Redeemer, we highlight the work of our missions partners across the globe and within our congregation. God is at work and our partners are extending the reach of the kingdom in beautiful ways.
This year we’re focusing on the idea of partnership during missions month. We’ve been inspired by Paul’s words to the Corinthians when he asks them to support the Macedonian churches: “At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need” (2 Cor. 8:14). Our vision is that we learn from our missions partners as much as we support them through prayer and financial resources.
We at Redeemer have much to learn from our partners and their work in cities around the world.
As we think about church planting in Indianapolis, we can learn from Chris and Josephine Hatch, who’ve planted a church in a multi-ethnic neighborhood in London and from Jay and Holly, who are starting a new evangelism project in Berlin.
We can learn from the expertise of Shanda Eickelberger and Carolyn McDonnell, who know how to equip and support people in ministry.
As we consider how art speaks into our culture, we can learn from Tim and Rhianna Mills in Bangkok, Thailand and Stefan and Neeru in New Delhi, India.
As we work to practice mercy in our context, we can learn from Esaïe and Natacha Etienne, who’ve built schools in Haiti and from Matt and Esta Jesch’s work with orphans in Guadalajara, Mexico.
From all our partners, we can be encouraged by how God is changing hearts, making disciples, and restoring communities.
This February, we hope you will learn more about our partners, join their work in prayer and giving, and gain a greater vision for how we can partner with the work of God’s kingdom around the world.
