An Explosive Ministry Model
Partnerships are the key to ministry growth. Rather than limit partnerships in an attempt to protect growth, partnerships actually allow ministries to join together with a goal of helping both ministries grow and accomplish solid Kingdom work together. That is the philosophy which is practiced by Global One80. Instead of asking if actions help Global, the ministry has sought to enhance ministry through partnerships, regardless of whether it directly benefits Global One80.
A clear example of this occurred In July of 2018, when Global One80 birthed Campus One80. Campus One80 is a ministry to college campuses that shares Global’s focus on empowering leaders in order to transform college communities. Using the same tagline of One Life at a Time, Campus One80 forms Christian communities on secular college campuses with a goal of reaching the campus with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Campus One80 grew from one campus minister to 34 over the next three years. By October of 2018, it was decided to spin Campus One80 off as its own non-profit, but Global continued to receive donations for the ministry until it received 501(c)3 status. Today Campus One80 has ministries in four states and will be expanding to a fifth by the end of the year. All of this was made possible by the vision of Joaquin Vargas and Global One80.
But Global hasn’t stopped there. Global One80 has formed strategic alliances with other ministries in multiple countries to further transformative ministries through the equipping of both young and veteran leaders. This open-handed approach is now attracting more and more leaders and organizations to a truly global vision of advancing God’s Kingdom work. And the true winners are the communities that are now being reached because of this vision.
So thank you for your support of Global One80. Your financial gifts are allowing people all over the world to experience God’s love through community programs, the training of the next generation of Christian leaders, and the proclamation of the Gospel. In a world where people frequently couldn’t care less about others, Global is proving that God couldn’t care more.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
