RMI was founded in 1988 as an evangelical faith-based mission to facilitate C3 Church Partnerships, or Connected Church to Church Partnerships that are long-term, strategic, and life transforming to everyone involved. C3 Partnerships are exciting, reciprocal, cross-cultural, intimate, in-depth, ongoing, practical and spiritual relationships between evangelical churches located throughout Haiti and all across the United States and Canada. RMI also provides many ways with various partners to engage the Body of Christ to minister cross culturally one to another. The purpose of these partnerships and ministries is to resource the Haitian church for more effective ministry into their own lives and into the lives of those in their community. To be effective and to avoid common pitfalls as a church engages in cross-cultural ministry, RMI provides comprehensive training before teams engage in ministry, as well as strategic guidance for the partnership, constant support, and many opportunities for personal involvement by the entire congregation. RMI facilitates this ministry via a dedicated and well-trained staff as well as providing an infrastructure that can support all that the partnership desires to accomplish.
