A Mission Partner is an employee of Crosslinks and is seconded through Crosslinks to a local institution or church.
Crosslinks helps Mission Partners build partnerships with churches and individuals before they go. These churches and individuals commit to true gospel partnership, with a commitment to prayer and financial support within the context of building a scripturally-based relationship between the church and Mission Partner.
Crosslinks provides administrative and pastoral support for Mission Partners before, during and after their placement.
Associate Mission Partners
An Associate Mission Partner is not employed by Crosslinks and has a looser affiliation with the organization. An Associate Mission Partner usually either has paid work, or already has some churches that can help them meet their budget.
Crosslinks provides administrative and pastoral support for Associate Mission Partners but doesn’t build new church or individual partnerships for them.
