PARTNER WITH US
At Morling, we want to follow God’s leading to equip and shape Christ-centred followers to impact the world. We can’t do this alone! We believe that the most effective way to do this is in partnership with churches, like-minded organisations and individuals who share the same mission.
There are many benefits to partnering in God’s work. These include:
A commitment to a shared vision
Jesus told his disciples, and tells us today, that we should be people who foremost ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ and then seek ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ (Matthew 22:37-39). At Morling, we want every member of our community to be follow Christ in this way and to be people shaped by his great commission to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). This is a life-long commitment, one that we know starts before someone comes to study at Morling, and one that will continue after study is completed.
This shared faith and vision ensures that our students are encouraged here, and in their churches or workplaces, to put their faith into missional action, and to build life-long rhythms of discipleship and learning. One example of this is our partnership with the Baptist Association’s bold goal of growing God’s Kingdom with 1000 healthy churches by 2050 (the ‘Gen1K goal’).
A shared commitment to students and your community
We hope that all our students are well connected in a local church and community. We want our churches to recognise the gifts of those in their community, and to help them discern how Morling could equip them to serve. We want them to known; to be supported through discipleship, mentoring, prayer, or even financially. We want them to have opportunities to use their gifts to serve God, the church and the world.
Our impact is multiplied when we serve and pray together, and when you share with us the needs of your community. Please invite us to get to know you better through a church visit (deputation) or a Partnership Mission.
Promotion of Christian unity and reconciliation
At Morling, we want to reflect the diversity of God’s kingdom and the ways that a shared faith in Christ unifies us in spirit and purpose. Our community is enriched by the diversity and backgrounds of our students and staff. Partnership opens new conversations and encourages us to build relationships that promote unity and reconciliation which is so vital for our witness today.
Sustaining the work of the College financially
Since Morling began in 1916, we have been blessed by those who have chosen to partner with us financially. This has come foremostly through student enrolments, but we are also financially sustained through financial gifts and support from individuals, churches and organisations. If you feel called to support Morling financially then we would love to have a conversation with you.
