Empowering and partnering-empowering one of emparts distinctives is that our entire model of ministry is about empowering local believers, as opposed to controlling. our task is to transform communities by training local people to plant local churches in the local community. local church planters are committed to reaching the unreached people, restoring and resourcing them, then releasing them to fulfil the great commission.partneringthe only way that we are able to achieve the work of planting 100,000 churches is to make sure we are all using our gifts to their maximum. our asian church planters know the language, culture, and are immediately effective in reaching their own people. our strength in western countries is in our access to resources and ability to pray. by combining the efforts of our asian church planters and our supporting countries, we have a very strong partnership!
