Our partners in advancing God’s Kingdom in Kansas City
Many of the connections that take place within The Sending Project are through the relationships we have with over 300 churches all across the Kansas City area.
Many of these churches have taken a step to formally partner with us in our mission to connect the citywide Body of Christ. We call these Alliance Churches who are a part of The Sending Alliance. These churches have joined us on a missional journey, unified in mission while retaining their diverse and unique personalities and styles. God is working through each of these churches in unique ways, and as members of The Sending Alliance, they seek to learn from each other and pursue joint ventures as the Holy Spirit leads.
We invite your church to explore what it means to be a part of this citywide movement. By joining The Sending Alliance, you and your church are agreeing to a basic but important covenant. It is not a commitment to a certain mission program. It is a commitment to growing in missional awareness, community, and collaboration with others in the citywide Body of Christ.
