As you see a world in crisis, a country that’s struggling and people groups in need across communities in the U.S., you know you’ve been called to respond. But how do you, as a Christian leader, follow your call to disciple and engage congregations and move them into mission?
A Partnership in Action
These are questions many of us grapple with daily. And finding the answers can often be incredibly challenging. But here’s the good news. We understand, and we can help.
For over 40 years, World Relief has been partnering with churches across the country, welcoming, advocating for and helping to integrate over 400,000 immigrants in vulnerable situations into communities all across our nation. Together, we’ve joined in God’s plan to bring lasting change to our world by creating partnerships that support and empower local churches to serve immigrants and refugees right here in our communities.
If you have a vision for engaging, equipping and empowering the local church in this mission, consider joining our growing team at World Relief! At this critical time in our nation and communities, together we can expand congregations’ understanding of what it means to love, serve and learn from immigrants and refugees.
At this critical time in our nation, we are looking for new leaders who will join our expanding mobilization team in both remote and field-based positions in 17 U.S. cities.

7 Reasons We Believe The Church Can Change The World
We believe that when the church is mobilized to achieve its full potential, it has the power to change our world. We believe this because:
1. The local church is God’s plan to reveal his mercy, compassion and truth to people around the world.
2. The local church is the largest social network on the planet and has the ability, authority and permanency to do far more than any government institution or non-profit organization could.
3. The local church is led by local, trusted community leaders — those with an inside voice and understanding that no outside organization can bring.
4. The local church has the influence and moral authority to shape behaviors rooted in biblical values of love, compassion and justice.
5. The local church offers the greatest hope of reconciliation between classes, tribes, ethnicities and political parties, unifying people under a common identity in Christ.
6. The local church can restore dignity and bring hope to the suffering, forgotten and marginalized by reaching out to the most vulnerable in its community and answering God’s call to love.
7. The local church is empowered by the Holy Spirit to do more than human wisdom and efforts could ever possibly accomplish alone.
"The dichotomy of choosing between Jesus OR Justice is what we’re trying to fight against with everything we do, and the example World Relief sets gives us a way to do that. When we disciple our young people, we can point to World Relief and say, ‘this is what it looks like to love God.’"
- Dave Dunderall, Pastor
"Church health can’t be defined by attendance or budgets alone. Rather, by how well our congregation is loving their neighbors and coming alongside the most vulnerable in our community and around the world. As a partner, World Relief has played an important role in equipping and mobilizing our church to step into the lives of the vulnerable both here and around the world."
– Nathan Nelson, Missions Pastor
