My church is probably similar to other churches in the denomination in that we partner with a variety of ministries each year. In partnership, we pray for these partners on a regular basis, as well as provide support to their work (usually financial support). Our ministry partners include a number of missionaries through Resonate Global Mission, church plants, and ministries outside of the denomination.
We are looking for ways to evaluate our relationship with our ministry partners. I'm curious about how other churches evaluate their relationships. Do you put term limits on how long you support a ministry partner (i.e. 3 to 5 years)? Do you use a term limit and then evaluate each partner at the end of the term? Do you use certain criteria to evaluate your relationship with each ministry on a regular basis? Perhaps you don't do anything to evaluate your relationship with your ministry partners. I'm curious to hear from all sides.
