Global Partner Resources

HOW CAN I SUPPORT OUR GLOBAL PARTNERS?

Our Global Partners are people just like you and me: They juggle work and home and family, but sometimes struggle with priorities. They love life, experiencing new things and entering new relationships, but sometimes they’re tired and just want to retreat. They smile and laugh and play, but sometimes they cry. They love Jesus, but sometimes feel distant from Him.

And so they’re really no different from any of us except in one very significant way: they choose to experience all of these things in a vastly different culture thousands of miles away from the support base of their families. And sometimes
that’s really hard—for them, and for their families.

What can you do?

LOVE THEM! Read their blog posts, newsletters, or email updates—and let them know you’re reading them, remembering them, and praying for them. Keep in mind that writing only a few lines may be all that’s needed, such as on Facebook or email. Just hearing from you speaks volumes!

JOIN OUR TEAM! Centennial has a Global Partners support team which strives to broaden awareness of God’s work throughout the world, including fostering meaningful relationships between our church family and our GPs.
