A powerful way to partner with what God is up to in Swaziland is through church partnerships.
This is when churches in the States partner with an existing church or Carepoint/community development project. This partnership for prayer and finances also includes travelling once a year to visit your project, bringing a group from your church to build relationships with the community and children. These trips develop into rich relationship experiences. A typical length of commitment for our partnerships is 5 years.
We’ve seen Carepoints developed and churches planted through these partnerships!
New Hope church in Harrisburg, PA, and Pastor Bheki in Mbhutu, Swaziland, have been in partnership for some time. This has led to not only church growth, but also the planting of three church plants in the past few years. Additionally the New Hope partnership has been involved in Carepoint sponsorship, developing prayer partners between churches, building projects, pastor training, and much more.
"Partnering with a church in Swaziland has had a big impact on New Hope Church. It has opened many eyes and has allowed us not only to help those in need, but also to meet and build relationships with those we are assisting. Our partnership with a sister church in Swaziland has moved our church into global mission work in a dramatic and fruitful way!" - Greg Starr
"This whole experience so far has raised the awareness of our entire church to world issues with AIDS and hunger. It has become more personal, something they can really connect with. Now that we have partnered with the Nsoko church, we all look forward to establishing a long and deeper relationship with the people of Swaziland. I have personally been changed forever and am devoting the rest of my years to God's vision for Swaziland." - Ken Roosenberg
