It’s all pretty simple. We get behind key international churches and help them to fulfill the vision described in the book of Acts.
Building healthy churches is the best way to fulfill the Great Commission. Or so we conclude from reading the book of Acts. Disciples from the church in Jerusalem scatter and plant other churches. They in turn partner with one another to plant still more. And the gospel spreads.
9Marks’ strategy is the same: to partner with international church leaders for creating resources and hosting events that will equip, train, mentor, and mobilize pastors in building healthy churches.
At present we partner with like-minded leaders in several language-groups and regions:
- Middle East
- Great Britain
- South Africa
In each of these locations, our work relies on a partnership with a hub church. These hub churches serve as model churches in their countries. They facilitate in-country networks for like-minded pastors. They train other pastors in evangelism, church planting, and discipleship. And they function as basecamps for distributing 9Marks content.
