English MPD Training

Are you starting as missionary and need a team of financial partners, join our training for Ministry Partner Development.

We know healthy missionaries are driving the effort to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus. Getting you financially healthy into your mission field is the starting point for Ministry Partner Development. The MPD training will help you feel equipped to ask boldly for partners to be generous and to see God’s Kingdom built. 

Currently we have no English MPD Training planned, but if you are interested, please look at the details below and contact us.

Time investment

We do not facilitate the MPD proces for senior staff (>1 year on staff), please reach out to equippers around you or ask us to connect you.

If you are an experienced staff worker, looking to equip others in MPD, you are invited to this training as future facilitator. See Are you willing to equip others in MPD?

Content for new staff

From the model of the Partner Triangle, we have developed Eight Building Blocks that are necessary in order to be biblically and emotionally equipped to create a team of partners. We start with a Preparation phase before talking about the Construction phase (0 to 100% budget), that is followed by the Development phase (staying on 100% long term).
