The World Partners’ Regional Strategy Coordinators from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America will gather in Fort Wayne, Indiana, from July 1-5. The discussions at the meeting will revolve around discipleship and how disciples are being made in their areas.
A World Partners’ Regional Strategy Coordinator is an individual who strategizes with the World Partners’ staff in a specific region in regard to their discipleship ministry. They are also commissioned to develop movements within their region. The RSCs are leaders in the discipleship-making movement.
To develop movements, strategies must be implemented for identifying, equipping, networking, training, and releasing discipleship leaders into the RSC’s region.
At SHIFT National Conference from July 8-11, the World Partners’ RSCs and staff from around the world will gather to participate in business sessions as well as to lead and attend workshops. Be sure to pick up the new World Partners’ brochure, a staff map, and prayer cards, all of which will be available at SHIFT.
During the third week of July, Refresh, Reconnect, Renew will be the theme for the World Partners’ staff as they met at the Amigo Centre in Sturgis, Michigan, for their annual retreat. All World Partners’ staff who are in the U.S. on Home Ministry Assignment (HMA) or who serve in the U.S. are invited. Some staff will meet for the first time, while others will renew old acquaintances. Mornings will be committed to discussions and presentations related to World Partners. Afternoons will provide free time, while evenings involve worship, devotionals, and fellowship. On the final day, Missionary Church president Steve Jones will present a message to the group and lead them in communion.
