Have your church partner with a project!

Church partnership with a project is a great, tangible way to engage your congregants in thinking and acting on the topic of biblical poverty.

The bible calls us to walk alongside the downtrodden and oppressed. To help provide to those living in poverty because they have infinite value.

Long-term partnerships (3+ years) provide many benefits to both your church and to those overseas.
