A beautiful expression of partnership in One Challenge is the work of the 11 sending centers in the Global Alliance.
The OC Global Alliance serves and equips God’s people through 923 partnerships with 417 organizations in 102 countries. “We’re catalysts and connectors, stimulating teamwork toward the vision of healthy churches transforming every small community,” says Dean, One Challenge U.S. president.
Synergy in Southeast Asia
In Southeast Asia mobilization centers in Singapore, the Philippines, and the U.S., along with OC’s team in Korea, have come together to facilitate movements in seven countries, including Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Each center brings something unique to the partnership, Singapore as a connection agent, U.S. with long-term experience and personnel, and the Philippines with training and as the “boots on the ground.”
Without each of these centers and the commitment to advancing the Kingdom, these initiatives in church planting and disciple making would not be possible.
Hope to Grow
Meanwhile, several teams in One Challenge are looking at the next steps to become sending centers. Many teams already have local believers joining as local and cross-cultural mission workers. One Challenge hopes to see sending centers grow out of its ministries in Asia, Africa, and Europe!
Prayer is Key
With growth, more challenges in communication and partnership arise. Would you pray for the Global Alliance with us?
- Join us in prayer for synergistic partnerships and open lines of communication between Alliance centers.
