Partnership is everything to us!
Since our humble beginnings with one local leader in China, Partners International has encouraged, equipped and resourced the vision of extraordinary local Christian leaders who have been raised up by God to change the spiritual and social landscape in the most challenging parts of our world. Our local leaders know the culture, language, customs, attitudes and perspectives of the people where they live and work. They possess the cultural sensitivity required to build bridges of trust and the courage to take great risks to share the love of Christ.
