Partner Care Teams

“For they have gone out for the sake of the name...Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.” 3 John 7-8

Richland Creek’s Partner Care Teams are one of the most tangible ways we become fellow workers of those sent out as missionaries and church planters for the sake of our King. Each team is comprised of 3-8 members who are responsible for caring for our Mission Partners and advocating for them among the congregation. 

What are the tasks of a Partner Care Team?

As a team, you are responsible for the following five tasks:

  1. Pray fervently
  2. Check-In on Missionary Partner
    1. Quick Updates: Occasional and brief check-ins to encourage Mission Partners and see how they are doing. For example: Responding to their email updates, texting them with encouraging words, asking about a specific event, etc.
    2. Meaningful conversations: Your team must have at least one meaningful conversation a month. For example, a video call, phone call, or an extensive conversation over text or email.
  3. Keep pastors and staff updated
    1. The team is responsible for filling out a Partner Care Update Form at least once a month. This will help both pastors and staff pray for our partners and get a better picture of their spiritual health.
  4. Represent them in the congregation
    1. At times you may be asked to give an update or announcement of our partners in a Life Group or represent Mission Partners in other church settings.
  5. Send a care package once a year
    1. Each team is responsible to assemble and send a care package to their assigned mission partner once a year.

Requirements to join a Partner Care Team:

  • Be a member of Richland Creek Community Church.
  • Have a meeting with the Missions Office staff to be assigned a partner.
  • Have a love for missions and a deep, personal, and prayerful interest in the well-being and ministry of their partner.
