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.

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).

We have a free Preview of our Online Learning Environment available. You can make an account an already see some of the elements that will be part of our training. The full online training cannot be entered without the full live-training: because we believe you learn best in a cohort of other learners. Welcome to join!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
