SEND International Launches New Partnership with Christar


For the past year, SEND International and Christar have been ironing out the details of a partnership agreement. This spring, both organizations signed that agreement. This new partnership will allow SEND members to serve on Christar teams and Christar members to serve on SEND teams.

The partnership is a good fit for both organizations who share a core focus: planting churches among unreached people groups. Don Parsons, SEND’s Director of Globalization, says, “We are on the same page with the big picture. Their orientation is church planting and that is our bottom line as well. We have the same goals.”

The agreement opens up exciting possibilities for both SEND and Christar. Brent McHugh, International Director of Christar, hopes the partnership will bring about “Healthier teams and an accelerated pace of planting the church among the unengaged.” Don Parsons is excited to tap into Christar’s experience in working among Muslim people. He also points to the Bible, specifically John 17, saying, “You can see all across Scripture the value of partnering together for the sake of the gospel.”

Initially, the focus will be on mobilizing missionaries to reach refugee communities around the world. According to the UN (in a report published June 18, 2015), there were 59.5 million forcibly displaced people worldwide in 2014. Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, has said, “We are witnessing a paradigm change, an unchecked slide into an era in which the scale of global forced displacement as well as the response required is now clearly dwarfing anything seen before.” Christar has found that these refugees, being away from home in a new environment, tend to be very open to new communities and ideas. This provides an open door to help these hurting people physically and emotionally as well as spiritually.

Both short-term and long-term missionaries are needed to meet these needs. Brent McHugh says that they are “looking for people who have a desire to plant a church among unengaged people groups. We look for boldness in sharing Christ and moving people along in discipleship.”

Many of these opportunities will be posted on the SEND International website, http://www.send.org, in just a few weeks. To learn more about either organization, visit http://www.send.org or http://www.christar.org.

SEND International is an interdenominational faith mission agency with around 500 missionaries in more than 20 areas of Asia, Eurasia, Europe and North America. SEND’s mission is to mobilize God’s people and engage the unreached in order to establish reproducing churches. SEND members are multinational and are recruited and sent from sending offices and partner agencies around the world.

In February of 2006, Steve was diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy while still maintaining his baseline fitness level, often running home from his treatments, he quickly reached complete remission. By September of that year, just 7 months after his diagnosis, “Remission Man” crossed the finish line of yet another iron distance triathlon – 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, and 26.2-mile run. Brown chronicled his journey through remission and across the finish line in his 2007 book My New Race, and his new book, Relentless Mettle – My Cancer, My Rules, which was published in February 2015.

“I draw parallel lines between the challenges we face in sport and those we face in life, says Steve Brown, I am thrilled to work with BONKGEAR, and utilizing the SURVIVOR apparel and training programs as another platform to encourage people to break through barriers and understand that all things are possible.” A portion of all sales revenue from the SURVIVOR apparel is being donated to Team Inspiration, a nonprofit organization that empowers individuals living with cancer by providing exercise & wellness programs that improve their physical, mental, and spiritual quality of life.

“We began our entry into endurance sports with RUNNER and MARATHON themed apparel and workouts,” says Chris Jones founder of BONKGEAR, “so when we decided to develop a program for triathletes we immediately thought of Steve Brown. Steve has inspired many people to compete and raise money for cancer charities through his personal story and his coaching. BONKGEAR is excited to play a part in empowering others to train and compete as well as raise awareness and funds for Team Inspiration.”

“We could not be more thrilled, not only to have Steve as one of our coaches and spokesperson for Team Inspiration, but to have BONKGEAR behind us as well,” states Roseann Dougherty, founder of Team Inspiration, an oncology nurse and cancer exercise specialist, triathlete, and USAT Certified Coach.
