ABOUT US

WE SEEK JESUS TOGETHER BY LIVING AND SERVING AMONG THE URBAN POOR.

WHO WE ARE

WE SEND

Servant Partners sends teams to slum communities to share their lives with the urban poor while living out the Gospel among their neighbors. Field teams partner with indigenous churches whenever possible, and where there are none, plant them. Teams work at the grass-roots and systemic levels to address the spiritual and physical needs of the communities we serve. Instead of creating a permanent Servant Partners presence, we evangelize, train, and empower people to transform their own communities in ways that will continue long after we are gone.

WE EQUIP

Our Research & Innovation initiative assists and amplifies the capacity of indigenous Christian leaders investing in their urban communities. Rather than imposing our own agenda, we want to see their own vision become reality as they minister naturally in their own communities. Research & Innovation is currently working with organizations in Honduras, Brazil, South Asia, and East Africa. We help to develop businesses that assist local ministry partners and promote a fair trade projects that market products created by the urban poor in Honduras and South Asia.

WE TRAIN

Servant Partners Interns live, serve, and learn in urban poor communities worldwide. Interns gain a foundation of training and experience that prepares them for lives of service to and advocacy for the urban poor. A majority of internship graduates continue to directly serve the urban poor either with Servant Partners or other organizations. Our vision is that all of our internship alumni, regardless of career path, will influence the church at large to take action to live out God’s heart for the urban poor.

WE CREATE CHURCHES THAT TRANSFORM THEIR URBAN POOR COMMUNITIES.

WHAT WE DO

Over the past century hundreds of millions of rural poor people have migrated to the world’s cities in search of a better life. Few find it.

 

Today over one billion people live in desperate conditions in urban slums and squatter settlements, frequently without the basic necessities of life, much less the freedom and joy of the good news of Jesus. 

 

One out of every eight people in the world today lives in an urban slum, with very few churches among them.

PLANT CHURCHES

Establish churches that flow from the organic life of the local Christian community

ORGANIZE COMMUNITIES

Gather & equip leaders to identify assets & resources that meet local needs

DEVELOP LEADERS

PREACH &
DISCIPLE

Build strong relationships that proclaim the Good News & develop life-long followers of Jesus

TRANSFORM SUSTAINABLY

Encourage creative & practical strategies that address local needs in a contextual & sustainable way

OUR STRATEGY

We use church planting and community organizing to transform urban poor communities.

 

THE NINE SIGNS

of a transforming community

What are some markers of an urban poor community changing in positive, sustainable ways?

We have learned to look for and work toward these nine signs in our international work:

Jesus Communities

Civic Good

Lifelong Learning

Wealth at the Bottom

Breakthrough to Freedom

Whole Families

Health for All

Systems that Work

Beauty and Creativity

SIGN ONE

JESUS COMMUNITIES

Reproducing, Transformational Communities of Jesus-Followers

A transforming community has many groups of people who are worshipping Jesus, studying the Word, serving one another, praying, inviting others into relationship with Jesus, discipling others, developing leaders, becoming change agents in their own community, and planting new communities that do the same.

 

People are freed from the mentality that they are powerless and insignificant in the world. This reinforces the fact that all healthy transformation is inspired and sustained by God's power at work.
