We believe the Church is called to play an active role in our world’s most complex problems.

Our focus
DISASTER RESPONSE

We target regions that are extremely vulnerable to natural or man-made disasters but have limited capacity to cope.

COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

We work with local churches, so that they can empower their communities to escape poverty.

ADVOCACY

We challenge ourselves and our leaders to change attitudes, behaviors and policies that perpetuate injustice.

Our Migrant Savior: Solidarity with migrants and refugees

There are 70 million displaced people in our world today--As we celebrate the birth of Christ we can't help but meditate on how he too had to flee violence as a child. Give today and help us meet urgent needs for food, shelter, water, and safety for migrant and refugee families.

Our Migrant Savior: Solidarity with migrants and refugees

Take the Solidarity Challenge

This 7 day devotional helps us take action and embody solidarity for our migrant and refugee neighbors. When God became one of us he could have chosen any life. He chose that of a refugee. Few details of Jesus’s early life are known, but Matthew’s gospel tells us this: violent, state-sanctioned persecution forced Jesus’ family to flee Israel and go to Egypt, where they lived as refugees. The experience of Jesus and his parents is mirrored in the challenges faced by 70 million displaced people in our world today.

who we are

We are followers of Jesus going to the places of greatest need, responding to disasters, challenging injustice, and helping communities to see their own potential to overcome poverty.

DID YOU KNOW?

1 IN 10

people live in extreme poverty, half of them in sub-Saharan Africa.

2 BILLION

people live in countries affected by fragility, conflict, and violence.

21.5 MILLION

people are forcibly displaced by weather-related hazards every year.

our vision

800 Million people live in extreme poverty—this will not be so in God's Kingdom. Our vision is to see all people freed from poverty, living transformed lives and reaching their God-given potential.

Over five decades, we have gained valuable experience and expertise in both humanitarian and development contexts. We have seen vast numbers of communities transformed—people on the brink of disaster becoming resilient to shocks, self-sufficient and empowered, boldly speaking up for their rights.

We are committed to the Sustainable Development Goals because we believe that, together, we can end poverty in all its forms everywhere by 2030.
