Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Equip local communities to disciple on their own.

Expand the work geographically by replicating successful models.

Assist a rapidly maturing Central American church to send her own disciples as evangelists and missionaries.

Healthy reliance (interdependency) on a growing complement of competent partners such as national churches, local governments, local schools, local NGOs, international NGOs, North American (large and small, Lutheran and non-Lutheran) & Central American congregations, etc.
We need each other. A theology of the body implies that no one agency can do it all and that the best mission work is done in partnership with others. It is an honor to be known as a trusted broker of strategic, sacrificial, dignified, and spirit-led partnerships.
