Reaching Creative Access Nations
Dr. Sana Singh named new Director of Partnership Missions.
What could be more fitting than to see one of those saved through a ministry grow strong in faith, seek theological training, immerse themself in a lifetime of ministry, and rise to the occasion to lead the missionary enterprise itself?
Dr. Sana Singh, the new director of Baptist Mid-Missions' Partnership Missions, holds a tremendous advantage as a liaison between American and Asian churches: he is our first Asian national to lead the ministry.
Preparation and Training
In 1985, Dr. Singh sensed the need to get further training. He and Nancy moved to the US, where he earned an MDiv, ThM, and later a DMin at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. As Dr. Singh studied Greek, he realized that he could help produce a much better translation into his own and other Asian languages. In 1992, he and Nancy became the first national staff members for Bibles International (BI), BMM's Bible translation division. They joined as full-time BI missionaries in 1997.
As new PM director, Dr. Singh plans to continue the good work already done through Partnership Missions. His desire is to make the most of the enormous potential of fulfilling the Great Commission in Asia by strengthening churches, training new workers, and sending them out to start their own churches.
A Successful Asian-North American Partnership
As an Asian national who fully understands the culture and people, and who has already worked with some of these church associations, Dr. Singh can easily move into his new role. And, being based out of India, he will be on-site many more months out of the year than previous American PM directors could be. Also, as Dr. Singh seeks PM partners in the States, he has a strong American connection through his US-born wife, Nancy, and through studies done in the US.
Partnership Missions is working to see the Great Commission fulfilled by assisting Nationals to reach their own people in countries where American missionaries cannot live and work freely.
By carefully partnering with local churches in Creative Access Nations, Partnership Missions is able to aid in evangelism and discipleship, in training nationals for ministry, and in planting churches. As a result, those churches are training people for ministry and sending their church planters into closed counties.
This is done through partnership, so as not to create dependency. As a result, there is national ownership, responsibility and accountability.
