Church to Church offers American churches the opportunity to partner with sister churches internationally as well as domestically (on Native American reservations throughout the United States). Partnerships focus primarily on building long-term relationships between the American church and sister church to help extend, encourage, and empower each other as we build unity amongst the worldwide body of Christ.

About Church to Church
Church to Church partners American churches with sister churches around the world.
Partnerships focus on building long-term relationships to help extend, encourage, and empower sister churches and build unity amongst the worldwide body of Christ. As a part of Church to Church, we will match your church with a sister church in another country or on one of several Native American reservations right here in the United States.
Through their Church to Church partnerships, American churches have experienced thousands of lives being transformed -- not only in the sister church, but also in their own local congregations. American church partners find themselves blessed beyond belief, receiving just as much as they give.
We have identified housing in each country where you can stay with safe drinking water and properly prepared food for your needs. Unless your Project Leader tells you otherwise, bring an air mattress, an inflator, a sleeping bag, towel, and pillow. Consult the packing list for more suggestions and helpful hints.
Each trip will have its own plan, beginning with your church partner's needs. If you've agreed to help meet those needs, we'll mix in your team's gifts and talents to set up a plan to do so. Working with you and the ministry partner in the field, your Adventures Project Leader will blend all the elements into a final dynamic plan. In addition to specific preparations, all plans share the following: (1) above all, we're going to serve Jesus, (2) we'll be most sensitive to the field partner's needs, and (3) we'll expect even the best plan to change.
Choose a mission trip that fits your team. Prepare for any specific ministries you'll be doing but don't bring expectations. Take time to learn about the local people. Ask God to give you an extra measure of love, patience, and compassion for the people you are going to meet. Ask Jesus to send his Spirit ahead of you to soften their hearts and open their spirits to the truth you will bring. Pray for your team and your partner church regularly before you go. And be ready to learn just as much as you give.
Each trip looks different. Your first trip is what we call a “vision trip" where we take you to your desired country and you work with a selected number of churches during your stay. You will interact with the church members, meet their leadership, minister with them, serve them, and be part of their ministry as a whole. By the end of your stay, you will have a better idea and of which church to partner with. After prayerfully choosing your partner church, you will visit them at least once a year with a team to build a relationship with them.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, download our information booklet, watch our newest video, and get acquainted with what Church to Church is all about. Then talk to your church leadership about it and introduce us. We will take it from there!
Currently, Church to Church partnerships are available in 16 countries - Haiti, Cuba, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Peru, Romania, Moldova, Uganda, Malawi, Mozambique, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, and India. For domestic Church to Church partnerships, see our Native American page.
We ask that you visit your partner church at least once a year with a group of 12 people or more. However, you may visit as often as you like. We have had American churches visit up to five times a year, but that is more the exception than the rule.
