Partnership at The Austin Stone is a commitment to live out our identity and calling as the lead missionaries and lead servants of our church. It is both an invitation and a commitment to fully pursue the joy of Jesus and the abundant life He promises to us together, for our city and for the nations.
Partners are the saints of God who do the work of ministry, and partnership is a commitment to missional living with the local body of believers. We call these men and women “partners” rather than “members,” because we think that word more clearly describes the heart of the New Testament (Ephesians 4:11–14). We call our partners to a higher level of accountability, service and sacrifice than attenders. We ask a lot of our partners, because we believe that God is using them, and our church, to do amazing things for His Kingdom in our city.
