To maintain focus and effectiveness, a vital aspect of our missions strategy is to establish and maintain ongoing partnerships with churches and organizations to make disciples. These relationships are long term and holistic with both parties vested, involved, and connected. We evaluate each opportunity on a case-by-case basis and define our level of involvement and support using a three-tier structure.
- Level One Partners receive consistent prayer support, regular funding, frequent short-term trips, and additional resources as needed.
- Level Two Partners receive consistent prayer support, funding for special projects, and occasional short-term trips.
- Level Three Partners receive consistent prayer and project-specific support.
Coreluv, Haiti - Level One
Coreluv’s vision is to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to orphans around the world by providing the six basic needs: clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, job skills, and a loving home. A small team from Parkway will be sent to the Myan Coreluv orphanage this summer to assist in various projects as well as with basic orphan care. A larger team will be sent in the summer of 2018.
Iglesia Petra Churches, Nicaragua - Level One
Since 2012, we have been working with Harvest Church in the capitol city of Managua to plant churches in the surrounding areas. Their goal is to train and send church planters to begin 20 new churches by 2020. We celebrated the start of 2 new churches in 2014.
International Mission Board - Level One
The International Mission Board (IMB) an entity of our Southern Baptist Convention. Its mission is to make disciples of all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20. Over 6,000 people groups - 1.7 billion people - still live with little or no access to the Gospel.
20 Schemes - Level One
This is a unique opportunity to partner locally and abroad simultaneously. Pastor Matthew Spandler-Davison of Redeemer Fellowship Church in Bardstown serves as the Executive Director of 20 Schemes. Parkway will partner with this organization which exists to build healthy, gospel-preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities in order to bring true, sustainable, and long-term renewal to Scotland’s schemes.
The Church at Delmas 32, Haiti - Level Two
The devastating earthquake in January 2010 leveled the building used by the Church at Delmas 32. Because of our existing relationships in Haiti, we learned of the needs of this congregation and began this partnership in 2011.
Baptist Global Response - Level Three
Baptist Global Response (BGR) is a disaster relief and community development organization with a heart for helping people in desperate need. We seek to demonstrate the love of God so that people in need have the opportunity to experience the full and meaningful lives God created them to enjoy. Our desire is to see people live their lives of with hope and peace, inspired to raise their families in confidence, build their communities with dignity and share this life with others.
BGR and its partners respond to people with critical needs, whether those needs arise from chronic conditions—like extreme poverty, contaminated water, or endemic hunger—or acute crises—such as natural disaster, personal trauma, or social upheaval.
BGR undergirds the work of Southern Baptists worldwide and partners with others who are like-minded. Baptist Global Response is not an official entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, but it is rooted in the soil of Southern Baptist life and committed to help Southern Baptists who care connect with people in need around the world.
