You have a role to play.

A World in Crisis

At World Relief Memphis, we know you want to be a person of faith-filled compassion and meaningful action. But as crises compound, you’re overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, every one of us has experienced challenges beyond anything we could have ever imagined. On top of that, COVID-19 has pushed 100 million people back into extreme poverty. Conflict and disasters fueled by climate change have both increased, resulting in the greatest displacement crisis in recorded history.

This trifecta of COVID, conflict and climate change has left us facing the most significant humanitarian crisis in centuries — one that none of us can take on alone.

As we look back over nearly 80 years of history at World Relief, 10 years right here in Memphis, we see how God has prepared us for this very moment, bringing together a global network of churches and people like you — people who don’t want to just do church, but who want to be the church. People who want to move forward together to make deep and lasting change in our community and around the world.

As crises compound, the only way to move forward is together.

Here’s how you can move with us:
