Walk with the poor

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, Philippians 1:3-5 (NIV)

A TEAR Fund Global Partnership empowers your whole church to walk alongside the poor on a journey of transformation. This journey involves trust, respect, commitment and sharing. It means building relationships that are real, mutual and beneficial. In authentic partnership we have something to give and something to receive. Partnership embraces collaboration and acknowledges that together we can accomplish much more than we can alone.

The focus of Global Partnership is to make God visible to the world. Not to add another layer of requirements, or to burden partners with expectations and rules, but to uphold the values of Jesus in all that we do and extend His Kingdom through life-giving ministry. Partners serve to empower, inspire and strengthen one another to live out the gospel in word, sign and deed.

The fruit of authentic partnership is transformation. This takes place in the lives of children, families, churches and entire communities, both overseas and in New Zealand. As your church walks with the poor, transformation unfolds in their village (and yours) and change occurs in the lives of many.
