What is Partnership Missions?
Partnership missions provides opportunities to live out God’s call for fellowship with new friends down the street and around the world. It is an investment in our partners, ourselves and the church sending us as we explore how God is at work through our partners.
There are multiple ways to experience partnership missions:
- Choose a project
- Join another team
- Explore a relationship with a people group
The Glocal Missions Team can help you explore opportunities to develop relationships with our global partners. Whether you go, send a team or invite a partnership team to join you in ministry, we can help!
A mission partnership can be a most rewarding experience for both sides. A partnership, by very nature, implies that two entities are working together toward a common goal. The fruit of a mission partnership comes when both groups work together to accomplish the mission.
Virginia Baptists have a long history of developing partnerships around the world. Explore our current partnerships:
Panama Baptist Convention
Under the theme “Juntos Para Servir a Otros,” or “Together For Others,” the churches of the Panama Baptist Convention (Convención Bautista de Panamá) are trying to make a Kingdom difference in their communities. Virginia Baptists are invited to join our Panamanian neighbors in ministry outside the walls of the church.
Contact the Partnership Office for more information on the Panama Partnership.
Virginia Baptists and Southwest Virginia associations (Clinch Valley, Powell River and Wise) are emphasizing missions projects in the Lee, Scott and Wise counties of Southwest Virginia.

The Amity Foundation (China)
With the help of willing English speakers, Amity is able to provide English training for Chinese middle school and primary school teachers of English in rural and minority areas throughout China through their annual Summer English Program (SEP).
The volunteers will gain immeasurably from their contact with their students and with other Chinese with whom they will be involved. The program will include opportunities to worship in Chinese churches and to do sightseeing in the area in which they teach.
