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. Local leaders and staff with similar life experiences and cultural backgrounds are the most effective at catalyzing change in our neighbourhoods.
We believe a strong network of prayer and financial supporters is crucial to long-term effectiveness in urban poor communities. We must have a fund to invest in their ideas for transformation.
