What is Partnership?
Most of you will have heard of the concept of partnering with a Christian ministry; this is a way of funding ministries, helping them to spread the Good News. Many of us will already be involved in this type of giving. It is a way of funding ministries that is actually recorded in the Bible.
For example the widow woman in Zarephath partnered with Elijah(1) and the believers in Philippi partnered with the Apostle Paul(2). Jesus Himself even had partners; Joanna the wife of Chuza, a steward of Herod, was among a number of women who partnered with the ministry of Jesus(3).
Partnership is more than simply giving financial aid. Partnership is giving in a purposeful and regular manner. Partnership is about coming alongside and becoming part of a ministry. Partnership is about committing to the furtherance of the Kingdom.
Partnership is about sowing and reaping
Partnership is about sowing and reaping within the context of giving. Sowing and reaping is a sound Biblical law.
Giving within the realm of partnership is not only good for the ministry receiving your gift but it is good for you. Giving will see fruit abound to your account(4). Giving will see abundance flow back to you; give and you will see your gift returned to you from other men(5). Sowing generously will result in a generous return, sowing little will result in little return(6).
Giving financially into the work of the Kingdom is an expectation of the Lord upon every born again believer; the Lord loves a cheerful giver(7), and there are a number of examples in Scripture of believers giving into the work of the Kingdom.
Would you please consider partnering with Heilan Word Ministries?
Heilan Word Ministries is a Christian teaching ministry founded and run by Vic and Nunsy Cameron. The ministry is based in the north of Scotland and proclaims the finished work of Jesus Christ. We provide teaching material in a number of different formats, and all our material (with the exception of hard copy booklets) is provided free of charge. We have distributed thousands of teaching cds thus far and our vision is to distribute millions. We provide a daily devotional called DIG on the Internet, encouraging many believers across the world with the message of truth and grace that is the finished work of Jesus Christ (contact us for details on how to receive DIG every day).
Vic resigned from his full time secular job and is now working in ministry and his small business, looking to Biblical principles to see his own needs, and the needs of his family, met.
Vic is determined to labour in the Word and doctrine(8); are you able and willing to reward him as a labourer in this work? Vic is determined to preach the Gospel in Scotland and across the world; are you able and willing to be one of the brothers and sisters in Christ who will send him(9)?
Romans 10 v 13 to 15 talks about preachers of the Gospel being sent in order for people to be saved. My friends, we all know that the Gospel needs to be preached to a needy world but not everyone can go. You may not be able to go, but you can send. Will you consider partnering with Vic to allow him to go and preach the Gospel?

What will we commit to for our partners?

We will communicate with you; we will tell you what we are doing in the ministry on a regular basis. We will provide teaching material for you. And most importantly we will pray for you, and if you wish, we will pray with you.
