Together we can work to end poverty – in all its forms.
Thousands of Churches Working Together to Restore God’s Kingdom.
The church is the only institution we know will last until Christ returns. It is God’s preferred method of fulfilling His restoration mission on Earth. It is also the largest relief and development agency in the world.
Across Africa and Asia, there are hundreds of thousands of churches and millions of congregants. They want to fulfill the mission that Christ has given them to preach the Good News to the poor. Not just in speech but in need. Helping the widows and orphans, feeding the poor, advocating for justice, and stewarding creation. Imagine if they were emboldened and empowered – these churches would change the world! They would lift millions of people out of poverty and shine God’s love to the world.
Join us in making this happen. We partner with churches here to empower churches there. Mobilize your congregation to unleash the power of thousands of churches across the world who are striving to live for Jesus.

Tearfund’s World Relief Sunday
Providing you with a range of resources and engaging speakers, Tearfund Sunday is an incredible way to help mobilize local churches across the world fulfill their calling to serve the poor.
This is more than just a particular day. It is an opportunity for your church to think about what it means to “love thy neighbour” in the furthest parts of the world.
It is so easy to start. Simply pick a day (can be any day) and we’ll do the rest. The program is customizable to your congregations particular needs and goals.
Tearfund Sunday is an opportunity for us to pool our resources together and to make a difference in the lives of others. The experience was uplifting and uniting. It brought the congregation together and it has prepared us for the conversation we are having now in regards to sending people on short term missions trips.

Partner With a Project
We work with incredible, spirit-filled partners, serving to share God’s love and to lift people out of poverty. Long-term (3 year) partnerships are invaluable to our church partners and their mission. They provide the reliability necessary for effective planning and also a great sense of encouragement to both parties as they pray and support each other.
Through partnership, your church can have life-changing impact as it builds a lasting relationship with one of our church-based partners.
Request a Speaker
Inspire your church with a Tearfund speaker who can share amazing stories of lives changed through our church-based partners overseas. All our speakers can present anywhere from five to 50 minutes and share what God is doing worldwide through his global church.
