Partnership Missions - Scotty Goldman
Meet Scotty Goldman. As director of the Office of Global Missions, he assists churches in developing an Acts 1:8 missions strategy and coordinates partnership efforts. Scotty enjoys helping Alabama Baptist churches develop their own mission partnerships by connecting them with missionaries from Alabama.
Scotty says seeing churches and missionaries realize the value of a true partnership is what really excites him. “When I hear from missionaries who say, ‘this church partnership has been such a great help to our work!’ or churches say ‘Our missionary partner is fabulous!’…that’s what we’re all about,” he affirmed.
Scotty and his team at the State Board of Missions work hand in hand with local churches and associations of all sizes to facilitate initial communication and assist with connections that bless all involved. From strategically praying or sending cards and encouraging notes, to going on a trip once or even going regularly, there are no set formulas for how a partnership has to work. Scotty says there are all kinds of needs for all kinds of churches.
