Church Partnership

World Relief pursues true partnership out of the genuine conviction that our vision cannot be achieved without the gifts, people, skills and varied resources of the whole Church. 

In Partnership, we seek to invite U.S. churches to effectively engage in holistic global mission over a 3 – 5 year period focused on a particular country or program. We mobilize the resources needed to equip local, international churches for transformational ministry in their own community. In the process, we facilitate meaningful, life-changing relationships within the body of Christ.
