Programs, including revenue & expenses
Direct/Personal Ministry of 4D president: Continuing primary residency and extensive travel throughout Eastern Europe with particular emphasis on meeting with potential national ministry partners to review their aims, programs and projects and then to develop strategies for joint ministry that would be compatible with 4D's commitment to help churches to be missional. In 2016 this resulted in new partnership agreements with an electronic and print media ministry in Belarus, separate church planting and youth leader network ministries, both in the Czech Republic, and a limited partnership with a Christian primary school in Romania. These new partnerships are with existing national ministries who already have a substantial record of fruitful service. The president continued to serve as the overall coordinator of four existing partnership ministries in the Czech Republic while service on the board of a long-time ministry partner in Poland and providing significant input to staff and program development initiatives with Romania-4D. He was again invited to serve as a designated mentor in ministry partnerships at the annual European Leadership Forum in Poland. These activities were supplemented by travel in the US to communicate the values, vision and practice of 4D at conferences and meetings -- with attention to further developing the new Kingdom Builders initiative to assist smaller national ministries develop and expand their potential.
