Partnership is a crucial part of our DNA at Mergon – it is one of our five core company values and the primary mechanism through which we fulfill our stewardship mandate to expand God’s Kingdom.

Over the last 40 years, we’ve learnt a lot about what makes an effective partnership. We’ve found that the essential partnership building blocks are surprisingly similar, whether we are investing capital, funding ministry initiatives, or equipping others on their journey. At the heart of it all is a willingness from each partner to lay down their own self-interest in pursuit of a common goal. In doing so, each of us will, paradoxically, ultimately fulfil our mandate.

As we work together as partners we recognise that we have different gifts and resources to contribute at different times. With a strong foundation of mutual trust and respect, we can appreciate one another’s unique contribution and celebrate the collective success.

Partnering with people

The way we see it, is that we aren’t partnering with organisations as such, we are partnering with people. So we believe a healthy partnership is grounded in healthy relationships with people. It means we don’t just care about the partnership outcomes but also about you, our partners. We strive to stand alongside our partners to equip, support and encourage them and to connect them into our wider network of like-minded partners. This relational foundation also allows us to be candid and transparent, to walk in relational integrity.

We’re certainly not done learning and we continuously strive to improve in this area, to become a more effective and supportive partner, as we grow in our own understanding of our stewardship calling.

Let’s remind ourselves of the humbling perspective that God has chosen us, with our many failings and shortcomings, to be His partners to fulfill His Kingdom commission on earth.  May it inspire us to contribute our unique gifts and abilities, through impactful partnerships, to see His Kingdom Expanded exponentially.

“So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.” – 1 Corinthians 3:7
