WHO WE ARE Partners Global Network is a U.S.-based, non-profit organization motivated by the Great Commandant (Matthew 28:18) and the Great Commission (Mark 12:30). Our aim is to engage the world, together, through creative partnerships as we work to unite leaders and organizations. PGN, along with our partners in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, believe the best long-term investment of current and future mission dollars is in the training and equipping of next-generation, national leaders who are trained locally and culturally.
PGNs long-range strategy is to leverage our relational assets to forge, nurture, and extend partnerships. We seek out in-country leaders who desire to have a ministry partnership with a U.S.-based person or group. PGN is committed to work in partnership with national organizations in many, varied contexts. We begin with their vision for their nation and we seek to listen to how we can help advance that vision.
Partners Global Network forms strategies locally, in dialogue with our national partners. Our approach is to integrate well into the culture and ensure everything we do is contextualized. We share that knowledge with others whom God is calling to serve.
Partners Global Network provides a sustainable structure to connect individuals, churches and agencies around the world in partnership for the training up and serving of the next generation of leaders. This structure enables communication, accountability, resourcing, and support to our many partners around the world.
PGN builds relationships with U.S.-based churches, individuals, and foundations that share our vision to see the next generation of leaders rise up to share the Gospel around the world. Our U.S.-based partners provide prayer, personnel, and funds as they work with the in-country leaders.
This chord-of-three-strands approach creates a bond through which a strong foundation is built that enables the gospel to be taken to parts of the world that are difficult to reach through traditional, western-based approaches.
POSITION SUMMARY As the Development Director, you will have the exciting opportunity to communicate our vision to see partnerships created that assist in the training and equipping of next- generation, national leaders.
