GLOBAL OUTREACH CARE TEAMS
NCBC is the sending church for some of our "homegrown" Global Outreach Partners (GO Partners). It is our desire to come alongside these sent GO Partners and support them in a myriad of ways by assigning a Global Outreach Care Team (GO Care Team) to each. Through these teams, our desire is to more fully live out 3 John 6-8,
You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
The GO Care Teams focus on prayer and support of our GO partners, an important and worthy service to those who are serving in challenging environments continually hounded in spiritual warfare. Not only are our sent GO partners encouraged with our love and service, but God's name is proclaimed in all nations. These teams facilitate mutual encouragement between NCBC and the GO partners (Romans 1:8-13). This builds the unity necessary for God-glorifying missions.
The teams, consisting of 2-5 NCBC attendees, are responsible for the following:
- Communicating with the partner on a regular basis by phone or video (possibly through Facetime, WhatsApp, Skype, etc.)
- Familiarizing selves with the partner's family, ministry goals, obstacles and needs.
- Praying regularly for the partner
- Assisting partner with resources, skills and contacts
- Reporting specific financial and physical needs along with prayer requests to NCBC
- Acquainting the partner with NCBC
- Arranging for home visits by the partner
- Helping partner with presentation as needed within the church body
- Organizing field visit to the partner's ministry in order to encourage, deepen relationships, pray with and collect information to report back to NCBC to glorify God for the works He has done through their ministry
- Building trust through transparency, love and confidentiality
Team members commit to serving on the team for the term of the sent worker (2-5 years).
