The Partnership Initiative exists to strengthen, equip, encourage, and empower Filipino missionary teams to take the gospel and ignite church multiplication movements in unreached people groups in Southeast Asia. The Partnership Initiative connects teams of Filipino frontline workers serving in creative-access areas, with western churches that partner with and commit to praying for the tribes and teams. Filipinos have God-given abilities for language and culture learning that help them to be effective cross-cultural Gospel workers. These Filipino teams have the freedom and are taking the initiative to access areas where doors are closed to western missionaries. This Partnership Initiative has created opportunities for Filipino churches, agencies, and workers to partner with western churches to effectively present the Gospel into areas that have traditionally been closed and hostile. This initiative offers opportunities for advocacy and partnership. Currently, there are six teams with a need for a western church partner who will commit to praying for a specific unreached people group and partnering through resources and relationships with the workers serving in those tribes.
Furthermore, there is an annual opportunity to connect with the frontline workers (who speak English) in order to see and taste what God is doing to bring himself glory among the islands. This is an annual highlight of the Partnership Initiative.
