Biblical partnership is about relationship in the shape of the cross, a relationship with a loving God on the vertical axis, and a mutual sharing with one another on the horizontal axis. Biblical partnership is about the fellowship of believers carrying a burden in the same direction, sharing the load, resources, time and effort while covering each other in prayer and keeping Christ at the center of it all. It is about fellowship, community, connection, cooperation, collaboration, togetherness, unity and the body of Christ all wrapped up into opportunities to live out the gospel, to leave the aroma of Christ and to spread the good news by operating in such a way that Jesus Christ is glorified.
Makarios, which means blessed, is in fact blessed to operate in the sweet spot of multiple, meaningful, impactful partnerships that lift up, encourage, support and challenge. These partnerships have been forged over time through relationships and the invitation to partake in what we acknowledge is the hand of God moving along the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. In fact, He was doing a work long before Makarios and its partners came along, but in His grace and love HE has allowed us to partake in His work here. Partnership. Blessed, indeed.
Partnership in the context of Makarios is multi-generational, multi-cultural, individual, corporate, familial, all of which represent a beautiful picture of the body of Christ moving in unison to highlight the focal point of all that we do: pointing to the only ONE who can save, set free, empower, change, Christ Jesus.
Partnership comes in many forms, but the opportunity is all the same - to be a partaker in what the Lord is doing! Would you like to partake in the mission of Makarios? Click here for more information.
