WHO IS IPA
International Partnering Associates (IPA) is a cooperative consensus association
We are an association of partnering facilitators and advocates, not an agency. Each associate serves in various ministry and professional contexts globally interceding, training, advocating, and creating partnering spaces. Our shared passion is to foster kingdom partnership and collaboration wherever possible but especially where Christ's Lordship is least acknowledged.
International Partnering Associates is a diverse community of believers from every continent. Our community of associates brings a wide variety of distinct experience, training and skills to contribute to fulfilling IPA’s vision and mission.
To see the Body of Christ working in unity of vision and purpose, collaborating with God and all believers, and to see His Kingdom established wherever least acknowledged.
We are called to serve and encourage the Body of Christ and to minister together in unity of purpose and vision especially among peoples who least acknowledge Christ as Lord. We pursue our mission together through:
Gathering regularly to mutually encourage, learn, and reflect together
Training, facilitating, coaching, consulting, and advocating for collaboration
Fostering prayer and strategic partnering-focused intercessory networks
Creating and nurturing effective strategies for fruitful partnering spaces
Finding and implementing innovative ways to meet the needs of partnering as they arise
We commit to be an encouraging mutual learning community of called-out sisters and brothers who serve the Body of Christ globally. As friends and colleagues, we commit to help each associate develop their gifts and fulfill their individual and collective calling.
