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.

Theological School Partners

Divinity schools, seminaries and schools of theology are critical for the ongoing development of church leaders who are responding to the continuing call of God in our changing world. Our theological school partners embody the values of the Alliance covenant and are committed to accompanying Alliance congregations and clergy in the growing of a vibrant church for today’s needs.

Partnership Core Values

Partner’s Expertise: We recognize our partner’s expertise in their context, trusting and following their lead in building capacity to create justice.

Accompaniment: We minister alongside our partners to grow a vibrant church and a deeper relationship with God.

Respect: We value spirituality and wisdom across lines of culture and faith, treasuring friendship and understanding with accountability. 

Mutuality: We learn alongside communities who have been marginalized recognizing the wisdom that arises in struggles for liberation.

Affirmation: We celebrate all who are called to ministry, empowered by the One who loves us to join hearts and hands.

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.
