The Antioch Partners

About Our Partner

Several years ago The Outreach Foundation joined in a strategic alliance with The Antioch Partners to create a new mission sending platform for Presbyterians, focusing on places and patterns of service that did not fit what denominations were doing. TAP’s conviction is that every follower of Jesus is a missionary, a “sent one,” but for those called to long-term, cross-cultural engagement, special training and support structures are necessary, and this is what TAP provides. TAP works alongside local Presbyterian churches in the U.S. to help people get from where they are now to where God is calling them to be, and then not just to survive, but to thrive, in their ministry callings. Specifically, TAP serves local churches in the assessment, training, sending and support of those called to long-term, cross-cultural engagement. One of TAP’s strategic priorities is Business as Mission (BAM), a significant and growing dimension of the world Christian movement. God is using Kingdom businesses to bring about the transformation of individuals, families and communities for the glory of God.

The Impact

The Antioch Partners (TAP) expands long-term (two years or more), cross-cultural, incarnational ministry opportunities for Presbyterians, increasing the church’s witness to the good news of Jesus Christ among unreached peoples and building global partners’ capacity for mission.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $25,000 in support of the ministry of The Antioch Partners.
