The Alliance model is one of partnerships. It is through a web of partnership that we mutually support one another to pursue God’s justice in the world.
How do our partnerships work?
We partner with a variety of people and entities around the world who share in the Alliance’s vision of God’s justice for the world. From individual persons to large organizations, the partnership approach models the mutuality of shared leadership so valued by the Alliance.
Active Hope Partners
Active Hope Partners are Alliance grant recipients to increase their capacity to respond to needs in their context and chart their own course for ministry. Since 2020, the Alliance has committed to reserve 20% of undesignated gifts be reserved for supporting our Active Hope Partners.

Partnership Core Values
1. Partner’s Expertise: We recognize our partner’s expertise in their context, and follow their lead in building capacity to create justice.
2. Accompaniment: We minister alongside our partners to grow a vibrant church and a deeper relationship with God.
3. Respect: We value spirituality and wisdom across lines of culture and faith, and seek friendship and understanding in our world.
4. Mutuality: We learn alongside communities who have been marginalized, recognizing the wisdom that arises in struggles for liberation.
5. Affirmation: We celebrate all who are called to ministry, empowered by the One who loves us to join hearts and hands.
6. Solidarity: We believe that work for justice draws us closer to one another and deeper into the love of God. The Spirit moves through our work with one another in this journey.
