Welcome To Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation

Thank YOU for a great year!

2017 has been an amazing year of ministry, and THANK YOU for being a part of it! Watch our 2017 video highlights.

We enjoyed seeing many of our friends (and making new ones!) in Indianapolis this summer at General Assembly. During workshops, in the exhibit hall booth and at the All-Assembly dinner, we loved spending several days having face-to-face conversations and making personal connections with many of you.

Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation worked with more than 50 congregations that were ready to transform their ministries and connect with their communities in meaningful ways. We welcomed 55 courageous leaders for an intensive five-day learning experience in September. At Leadership Academy, new church planters and transformational leaders were coached by ministry experts across the life of the church, including keynote speakers Teresa Hord Owens, Jim Griffith, Eric Law and Angela Whitenhill. New Church Ministry also celebrated planting and affiliating 992 new Disciples churches since 2001. We look forward to reaching (and surpassing!) the 2020 Vision goal of welcoming 1000 new churches by the year 2020! Your prayers and support have meant so much to us as we work to empower courageous leaders for 21st-century ministry.

We’ve also seen many congregations get excited about creating Holy Places for ministry this year. Disciples Church Extension Fund has provided 70 building and capital fundraising services to Disciples ministries. And, we have advanced more than $23,000,000 in loans for building projects! We supported 12 congregations in five states through DCEF’s disaster response service, and worked closely with the Disciples of Christ in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria’s devastation. We are grateful to our investors and donors who have made all these partnerships possible in 2017.

This year has been an exciting year for Hope Partnership and DCEF. Thank you for the many ways that you support our shared mission to help congregations thrive and transform communities!
