Networking & Partnerships

October 18, 2011

I have heard often leaders use the terms “networking” and “partnership” in the context of meaning the same outcomes. Yet, this is not the case in business, organizations or ministries. It is my conviction that partnerships, if they develop at all, come after the networking relationship has been established between key leaders. In summary, the stair steps are:

  • Motivational – Establish Your Cause (Visioneering)
  • Relational – Enforce Your Commitment  (Networking)
  • Financial – Enlist Your Comrades (Partnership)

When birthing a network, the motive has to be clear; the members have to be committed and the mission must be compelling for all who join the movement. If your network matures to the partnership level, be sure to choose your partners carefully. For example, if two of your partners begin to compete against each other, then your network will develop friction instead traction.  Networkers don’t compete; but they complete. Seek godly wisdom along the networking journey.

  • It a thrill to serve with James Davis on this global team, believing the Lord to plant churches where there have never been any churches before and to see souls saved where no souls have been saved before.

  • I have been a part of this global network since it was first announced by James Davis to more than 5,000 leaders. I am thrilled to know now that pastors in more than 140 nations are partnering together.
