One way that we see this in scripture is taken from the book of Acts:
And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord. The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians.
Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). So the disciples determined, every one according to his ability, to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
(Acts 11:21-30 ESV)
At the very basic level we have several things going on here (not exhaustive)
- Oversight given by and through the congregation and it's leaders
- The sending of trained and qualified individuals to work with other believers
- The work was diverse
- Relief sent THROUGH the hands of two men who were sent by the Elders
This is a glimpse of what we at Psalm 67 Missions Network desire in our partnership ministries.
Thank you for partnering with us for the glory of God that the Nations would be glad!
