Alliance Interchanges, December 2003


. . . short articles in their entirety from various ASCP fields


In November the Alliancefor SCP hosted its first "Church Multiplication through Partnership" conference in the US. Dallas, Texaswas the venue for the gathering which welcomed 125 church and mission agency representatives.
Also participating were national church planting leaders from Belarus, Bulgaria, CzechRepublic, Romania, Russiaand Ukraine.  Attendees were treated to presentations by Nik Nedelchev, President of the European Evangelical Alliance; Ted Noble, President of Greater Europe Mission and representatives of organizations like United World Mission, Global Missions Fellowship, Bible League and the International Mission Board.  The purpose of the conference was to envision participants for saturation church planting and for partnering with the Alliancefor practical application of SCP principles in post-communist Eurasia.

Here are some quotes that typify the response of conference participants . . .

"Extremely practical."

"Well planned, well focused, well implemented . . . I would travel half the world to hear people (nationals) of the caliber you brought."

"All (breakout sessions) were good because there were quality presentations followed by interaction with Q & A."

"I feel like I was able to learn principles that will help us as we look at strategic questions for our organization.  The conference served as an excellent stimulus to raise the questions we need to wrestle with. Thanks."

"The content of the conference was so good I wanted to be in every session."

In the end church and agencies were challenged to make a new or renewed commitment to the Alliancepartnership.  Click here to view the recently revised ASCP Partnership Agreement presented at the conference.
