TRUSTING IN GOD'S PROMISES AND EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WE ARE STEPPING OUT IN FAITH TO BUILD, STRENGTHEN, AND BRIDGE GOD'S MOVEMENT IN URBAN POOR COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD.
By 2030, we want to Build the organization up to 30-40 sites which are addressing the 9 Signs of a Transforming Community. This will require us to roughly double our current number of sites and staff. We will also empower our staff and local partners to flourish spiritually and professionally.
We will Strengthen our organization so that our structures and communications systems equip people for the work God has called them to. We hope to increase our funding significantly in order to bolster both our local work and recruiting of new staff. We want to be a thriving organization where people of any cultural and socio-economic background can answer God’s call to love marginalized urban communities.
Finally, we will Bridge our U.S. organization to other emerging national movements committed to addressing urban poverty. By 2030, we desire to develop a truly global organization with several indigenously-led national movements, of which the U.S. movement will be a part. This is the most stretching aspect of our vision, but it recognizes what the Spirit is already doing in other parts of the world.
National Movements Initiative
CONNECTING INDIGENOUSLY-LED NATIONAL MOVEMENTS ADDRESSING URBAN POVERTY
SERVANT PARTNERS STARTED AS A SEED OF FAITH, and has grown into a multinational movement working for long-term transformation through church planting, community organizing, and leadership development in nearly two dozen cities around the globe. In the last decade, Servant Partners has connected with national movements around the world and now stands on the brink of a catalytic movement for global transformation.
New national movements throughout Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia are seeking to catalyze global transformation in urban poor communities—and we have an opportunity to partner with them.

Regional Gatherings Fund
ENCOURAGING STAFF WITH REGIONAL COMMUNITY, CARE, AND COLLABORATION
WE ARE INVESTING IN REGIONAL GATHERINGS so our staff can connect more deeply with one another and the Lord. With our ministries spanning 12 countries around the world, opportunities for community, connection, and collaboration are rare.
These regional gatherings will provide focused spaces for training and strategy, as well as opportunities to include local leaders and partners, enabling us to build relationships, unity, and common vision.
THE FUND WILL
Assist current and potential staff in connecting in a more personal setting for training and equipping
Create pathways for local leaders to attend regional gatherings
Provide for the gatherings themselves, including staff, transportation, facilities, etc.
Would you consider giving so that current and potential staff around the world can connect in a more personal setting for training, equipping, and relationship-building with local leaders and partners?
Staff Catalyst Fund
EMPOWERING UNDER-RESOURCED LEADERS FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN MINISTRY
OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS, we plan to add many new staff in order to grow Servant Partners ministries in urban poor communities around the world. Many of these staff will be under-resourced, meaning they do not have an extensive network of family and friends who can contribute to their ministry.
We believe a strong network of prayer and financial supporters is crucial to long-term effectiveness in urban poor communities.
THE FUND WILL
Supply resources for under-resourced staff to develop their own networks
Assist local leaders in joining staff
Create access to training on spiritual formation, project leadership, and leadership development
Provide spiritual and emotional support needs for local leaders
Assist with costs related to retreats and fund development
Through generous gifts and pledges, we expect this initiative to be fully funded for the next three years. We are grateful for God's provision in this initial stage of supporting local leaders and other under resourced staff.
