    Church Partners 

    We see

    • Existing churches becoming part of All Nations Church
    • New church plants growing out of it
    • New apostolic centres being planted or joining the All Nations movement
    • Leaders, their churches and whole networks becoming closely related to the Movement for apostolic covering but remaining separate churches

    Locations or campuses are congregations established by All Nations Church (or, in time, by another apostolic centre that is part of the movement) - they are part of the same church but meet in local areas identified through prayer and discernment as bases for the work. The church’s senior leadership team is responsible for these campuses as part of one church.

    Some campuses are pre-existing congregations that explore becoming part of All Nations Church as campuses while retaining their history, local connectedness and identity. For situations like this, there is a process of building relationships and testing whether there is a “fit.” It is a little like a courtship period, before both All Nations and that church are ready to make the commitments involved.

    Covenant relationship describes a situation where a church and its current leadership recognise Steve Uppal’s apostolic ministry and invite input from him and his team.

    In these cases, the local leadership commits to

    • Promoting the All Nations values
    • Involving Pastor Steve or someone designated by him in major decisions, including any changes in the appointment of leaders or major initiatives
    • Developing mutual accountability in character and godliness among themselves and with one or more of the All Nations apostolic team
    • Some financial commitment to the work of the movement, including missions
    • Giving due weight to advice given
    •  Encouraging local leaders to make a priority of Fuel the Fire days (or equivalent, including leadership sessions locally) and where appropriate conferences, MTC, NextGen and other initiatives
    • Encouraging the whole church to make authenticity a priority
    • Making an effort to share news in a two-way dialogue


    The movement commits to:

    •     Building in accordance with the vision and values
    •     Prayerfully and diligently considering all requests for advice or ministry input
    •     Transparency in financial dealings
    •     Honouring any existing connections with a denomination or network that is not inconsistent with All Nations’ values
    •     Allowing the local church to be identified as part of the All Nations movement or family
    •     Priority access to ministry and conferences


    These mutual understandings are described as “covenant relationships” and, again, there will be a “courtship period” before the relationship grows into a commitment (or we all recognise it is better to develop other connections). But because of the All Nations’ values, this process should be understood in a dynamic and Spirit-led way rather than as a formal, legalistic requirement. 

    OTHER CONNECTIONS

    Fuel the Fire events are obviously aimed at those who are in relationship with All Nations but are open to all who consider themselves leaders.

    There may well be instances where a church is not ready and willing to make the commitments involved in covenant relationship but the pastor is keen to have mentoring and ministry support. As well as attending Fuel the Fire, some of the same sorts of commitments as in a covenant relationship might apply - they are of course limited to the individual pastor and therefore, there are some limits as to what can be achieved.
