Purpose

We Send: Servant Partners sends teams to inner-city and slum communities to share their lives with the urban poor, while living out the Gospel among their neighbors. Field teams partner with indigenous churches whenever possible, and where there are none, plant them. Teams work at the grass-roots and systemic levels to address the spiritual and physical needs of the communities we serve. Instead of creating a permanent Servant Partners presence, we evangelize, train, and empower people to transform their own communities in ways that will continue long after we are gone.

We Equip: Servant Partners' Learning and Collaboration Department equips our staff and local leaders for holistic ministry in their urban communities. We build the ministry and leadership capacity of individuals, churches, and community organizations. As we seek to facilitate the growth and development of nation-wide/region-wide urban poor movements, we empower national leaders to develop self-sustaining movements through prayer, mutual learning, and strategic consultation as they seek transformation in their own cities, nations, and regions.

We Train: Servant Partners Interns live, serve, and learn in urban poor communities worldwide. Interns gain a foundation of training and experience that prepares them for lives of service to and advocacy for the urban poor. A majority of internship graduates continue to directly serve the urban poor either with Servant Partners or other organizations. Our vision is that all of our internship alumni, regardless of career path, will influence the church at large to take action to live out God's heart for the urban poor.
