A global partner is someone who has been sent and supported by a local church for the sake of preaching the gospel and making disciples among the nations in a long-term capacity.
In order to be sent as a global partner, an applicant must be a member of Bethlehem, complete the Nurture Program, and be approved by a campus-specific Global Outreach Team.
We believe that there are three key dimensions in which the future global partner needs to develop within the context of the local church. These dimensions are knowledge, character, and skills. As members work their way through the Nurture Program, each level of the program will seek to address these aspects of global partner growth by means of various seminars, courses, books, and other resources.
There are three levels to the Nurture Program. To progress through all of them and become a global partner takes approximately two years.
