Develop and Cultivate Ministry Relationships

This unit, Develop and Cultivate Ministry Relationships, utilizes “CHCPRP001 Develop and Maintain Networks and Collaborative Partnerships.”

Ministry priorities are much the same as any professional calling, our priorities are much the same, while enhanced by biblical principles, the priorities remain very similar.  The same underlying skills and knowledge are required to identify networking and collaboration needs and develop formal and informal partnerships not only within the church or denomination but across denominations and businesses and community groups alike to enhance our service to the church and the world at large.

Successful churches like any successful business rely in part on the relationships developed with other people and organisations working together to reach a common goal.
