Partnership Mission Team
The PMT is working in tandem with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board to support both a national mission partner and an international mission partner. Nationally, northeast Georgia is coming alongside New England as a partner. We have identified a partner in Hampstead, NH, Island Pond Baptist Church. This partnership launched officially in 2022. We have identified various needs that we can assist them:
– Spring Festival – provide volunteers
– Fall Festival – provide volunteers
– Painting Sunday School Classrooms
– Assisting with Vacation Bible School
– Provide funds for the pastor and his wife to have some time away.
– Provide funds to replace a deck on their building.
The international partner that northeast Georgia has been assigned is Peru. We plan to identify a partner in 2023 and lay out plans to provide teams to come and help. We are also encouraging our pastors to go and do Pastor2Pastor Training. This process provides training for bi-vocational pastors in Peru. Our involvement will become clearer as a partner is identified and goals are set for the next few years.
