As we've been working developing the materials and processes for the new IMPACTOnetwork church planting project, we've had the blessing of partnering with some great Christian organizations also dedicated to expanding God's Kingdom.
Stadia generously shared their assessment materials as well as allowing Sergio and Holly Alvarado to observe/participate in a church planter assessment session. We translated the materials and contextualized them for use with church planters in Mexico. They continue to assist us as we prepare for the first IMPACTOnetwork assessment weekend in February 2018.
Passion for Planting has a huge amount of resources available for church planters that walks them through developing strategies for all different facets of the church plant. We partnered with them to translate materials which are now available for church planters working in a Spanish speaking context. The templates that we translated and modified for use in Mexico will be part of the tools we use to equip our future church planters.
Good News Productions International has been a long time partner with the IMPACTOLatino team. They have supported the IMPACTOnetwork project with multimedia equipment that is being used to develop resources for recruitment and training. Also, Pablo Perales who serves with them from Querétaro is assisting us in the area of multimedia and design.
