Partnerships of Hope:
The three-part focus of our mission partnership with the United Methodist Churches of Mozambique: 1) on-dialogue with ministry leaders, to share ideas, encouragement, and planning; 2) financial resourcing of some of their ministry programs and their training of lay and clergy leaders; and 3) the coordination of teams from Virginia Conference churches who travel to Mozambique for a variety of shared ministry, including hands-on ministry to the very young and old, training of lay and clergy church leaders, networking, medical practice and training, and construction and repair of ministry facilities.
Partnerships of Hope
Partnerships of Hope challenges and resources the Virginia Conference to cultivate a mutuality of mission with our Partner countries.
Through this mutual partnership, we expect awareness of the others to be heightened, sustainability is sought, understanding of the ministry context is dependent, and relationships flourish.
POH also facilitates mutual partnerships in mission among the local churches, as they become the engine of overseas missions for the Virginia Conference.
As partners in God’s mission, together, we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World.
