Missional Collaboration Highlights of Mission Resource Partners

Partnership Development Committee

 

At the 2010 General Assembly, CBFNC celebrated the formalization of our relationships with ministry partners in the Mission Resource Plan.  “Missional collaboration conversations” conducted with each partner in 2009 produced agreements that focused on missionally appropriate uses of financial contributions and avenues for collaboration involving congregations and CBFNC.

 

To cultivate these partner relationships, the Coordinating Council created the Partnership Development Committee in 2010.  The committee assigned its members as liaisons to each partner, and they have strengthened communication and collaboration between CBFNC and the partners.  Each partner was invited to share, via an annual letter, a report on progress made on partnership efforts.  Brief highlights of the letters from 2012 are provided below.  The complete letters are posted on www.cbfnc.org.

The members of the Partnership Development Committee include:  Roger Gilbert (past chair), C.F. McDowell (chair), Jack Glasgow, Gail Coulter, Bill Leathers, Charlotte Smith, David Whiteman, David Helms, Greg Watson, Mike Eddinger, and David Stratton.
