At World Relief our mission is to empower the local church to serve the most vulnerable.

Our Values

church
Church Centered

Working with the local church is not only a good strategy, it’s at the very heart of our work. We believe that God gave us a plan to save our broken world, and that it begins with his church, and his people, leading the way. We want to see local churches creating and leading change in their communities.

Holistic

We believe in transformation of the whole person - mind, body and spirit. That’s why our programs focus on addressing the root causes of poverty and vulnerability that often stem from harmful beliefs and practices. Beyond physical change, we focus on driving mental, social, and spiritual transformation.

Sustainable

We understand that lasting change requires more than quick fixes and band-aid solutions. That’s why we rely on local leaders to implement our programs. Over 95% of our staff are local - people who know and love their communities and will remain long after we depart.

For over 75 years, across 100 countries, we’ve been tackling the world’s greatest problems with sustainable solutions, transforming communities from the inside out.

World Relief has offices throughout the United States, each with unique opportunities to work and volunteer.

Made for Change

Made for Change

Change isn’t easy.  I can’t even begin to count how many times we’ve said that phrase over the last eight months at World Relief. When I think back to March, when our offices across the globe began closing their doors due to shelter-in-place orders, it feels like another lifetime entirely.  Like many of you, we…
