Global Partners Initiative
Supporting God’s Kingdom work in the US & abroad through ministry partnerships.
Through global partnerships, Warm Beach Camp seeks to connect people, resources, and ideas with the movements of God worldwide in a way that leads to the transformation of persons, families, and communities. Our vision is to go where God is working mightily to bring people into His kingdom, disciple them and send them out to bless and transform the world through meaningful partnerships with national leaders. Our support of indigenous ministry may take the form of financial resources, ministry teams, leadership training, familiarization tours, internships or cultural exchanges in the U.S., or any other method yet to be discovered.
