HOPE Partnership – Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation , in partnership with Higher Education Leadership Ministries (HELM), Disciples Home Missions (DHM), regions, seminaries and ecumenical partners, provides leader development and congregational ministry planning. This new model seeks to achieve the outcome of thriving communities of faith who bear witness to God’s love. The design is based on the premise that implementation of clear and vital congregational mission will be achieved most effectively when Disciples Church Extension Fund focuses on helping congregational leaders generate and leverage capital assets and resources for this mission. Likewise, strong congregational mission requires the calling, forming and support of leaders, who, with the help of Hope Partnership, can effectively use these assets and resources to help their congregations live out God’s mission how and where they feel called.
