We invite you to join us in mission.
Last week, we began a new series of articles focused on the topic of communication by looking at the four goals we have for communication within Kairos. We will be looking more deeply at a few of the practices that help us pursue those goals. The first is to “Tell The Story.” This an opportunity to focus on telling The Story of God.
Communicating well is a demanding task. It is hard for couples and families – people who are around each other all of the time. It is even more difficult for organizations or groups of people who may not be in the same room (or even the same region or country). Within Kairos we have students, mentors, faculty, staff, partners, and collaborators around the world.
We have been talking about the partnership framework that exists within Kairos and the various types of partnerships (Legacy, Integrated, and Collaborating). The final category in the partnership framework is Operating Partnerships. This type of partnership is unique in that has a greater potential to touch multiple aspects of our mission.
Today, we are going to discuss Collaborating Partnerships, which are the most prevalent type of partner within the global network of Kairos. Collaborating partners tend to have a program or ministry that provides some aspect of theological education, often focusing on particular contexts, expertise, Christian traditions, or content areas.
