Why We Do It
Mobilizing Canadians into partnership with indigenous Christian ministries to advance the Kingdom of God.
As people of faith, we want to reach out with the hands of Jesus to touch people in need, bringing health, justice and economic hope to their communities. And we want to be the voice of Jesus, sharing the message of freedom and love that transforms lives for today and for eternity.
We serve in a world of disparity where a comparative few enjoy education, prosperity and freedom from preventable disease. Today, for example, someone living in Zambia has less chance of reaching age 30 than someone born in England in 1840—and the gap is widening.
The work of Partners International Canada is focused on those places where this gap is widest. Places where a small investment can bring transformation to people in need.
Partners International seeks to identify and establish partnership with strategic, emerging indigenous-led Christian ministries to effectively proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to those who have never heard and serve communities in ways that speak of the transforming power of God in the hearts and lives of people who know Him.
Christian partnership is powerful in the most difficult, least resourced, least reached parts of the world. Therefore, we focus our attention in these places.
Our goal in partnership is to work with people of extraordinary vision, raised up by God, to change the spiritual and social landscape in their contexts. We work together to achieve a shared vision of transformed communities.
