With a partnership, you and your congregation become an active member of our network and part of the international learning community.
A project partnership provides a framework for your local engagement on behalf of the global church. It creates space for depth and participation, connects development cooperation and learning community, and combines financial support with substantive accompaniment.
Such a commitment is usually limited to a certain period of time and therefore offers the possibility to flexibly redirect the focus afterwards. During the partnership, we accompany you with news, background information and, if possible, digital or physical opportunities to meet. With a project/topic partnership, you are in partnership with Mission 21 and via us with our partners abroad.
Mission 21 lives from the lively exchange between committed people on all continents. Church partnerships are a very intensive and long-term form of partnership. In contrast to project partnerships, churches in Switzerland and abroad are in contact with each other. Additional activities relate in particular to joint theological exchange.
Due to difficult political contexts, such intensive and long-term church partnerships are currently only possible to a very limited extent with our partner churches abroad. They also require a mutual clarification of expectations and committed groups of people on both sides. Apart from the possibilities within the framework of a project partnership, Mission 21 can only offer additional services by individual agreement. We strive for integration as well as the use of synergies with existing offers and opportunities (for example within the framework of visits during the Mission Synod).
