Rationale: As members of the global Church collaborating to bless the peoples of the earth, we will explore together the practice of Equipping Leaders in the Context of Partnership

The need is greater than ever for the global church to collaborate wisely and fruitfully across East and West, North and South—through a spirit of mutual servanthood. This cannot happen without effective equipping and leadership training done in a way which values local contextualization and Christ-honoring collaboration. This COSIM conference exists to help us move forward in this arena.

The eye cannot say to the hand,
“I have no need of you,”
nor again the head to the feet,
“I have no need of you.”
–1 Cor 12:21, ESV
