Accountability with indigenous ministry partners

Three main features

  1. Deep relationship between Mission ONE leadership and key leader of the partner ministry
    • Aim is to strengthen local accountability
    • Not “father-to-son”, but “brother-to-brother”
    • Most partnerships based on 15+ years of high-trust relationship
    • Periodic visits by Mission ONE to international partner-leaders in Africa and Asia
    • Periodic visits by international partner-leaders to visit Mission ONE friends in USA
  2. Partnership agreement 
    • Between Mission ONE and indigenous ministry orgainization with its own accountability structure
    • Emphasizing of godly character, cultural intelligence, and organizational competence on both sides of the partnership
    • Reviewed semi-annually
  3. Quarterly report system 
    • Quarterly ministry reports are requested to partners and returned to Mission ONE via email; Mission ONE then edits reports and sends to donor-partners
    • Reports contain stories and updates, ministry successes and challenges, some statistics, prayer requests and needs, how funds were distributed
    • Mutually-agreed-up system of “No report/No support”
