Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation
Founded in 1883, Board of Church Extension was the ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) that helped congregations with capital project planning and financing. We have come to realize that for your congregation to be strong in the 21st century, you need more than just a building and financial plan to carry out God’s mission in your community.
The purpose of Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation is to empower courageous leaders as they guide the Church into life-giving expressions of God’s mission. Hope Partnership serves transforming congregations and their leaders; nurtures leaders through coaching and peer support; and identifies, equips and supports leaders to plant new congregations.
