In addition to producing our own content, FieldPartner’s objective is to partner (as our name suggests) with other organisations and agencies, so that, together we can help to provide what you need to thrive at every stage of your cross-cultural journey.
In calling ourselves a ‘portal’ to resources for training and supporting cross-cultural missionaries, we are merely recognising that we can only do so much ourselves! By linking up with some other wonderful organisations and training schools, plenty of good material, we are able to make much more available to you.
Some of the training sites, like ourselves, provide material for free, others require some payment, which you can see for yourself when you go to their sites. Some provide certification and even degrees at the end of their courses, others do not, and the courses vary in length and depth according to differing emphases. Our part is to help you see some of what is out there and navigate through the options. Your part is to filter for yourself what you need and run with it!
As you can see below, not all our partners provide training, some are member care (sender support) partners and others again are sending agencies or ‘opportunity partners’. But the overall goal for all of us is to help mission workers prepare well and then thrive on their cross-cultural journey.
We also rely on individuals to partner with us in prayer, in spreading the word and financially. Because we have chosen to offer all our content for free, this journey to equip the next generation of missionaries is a walk of faith for us. We love what Paul says to the Philippian church, when he thanks God for their “partnership in the gospel from the first day until now”. From the context that seems to have meant partnering by prayer, financial support (see Philippians 1:19 and 4:15.16) and also by their encouragement and belief in him.
