Empowering the World's Poorest

1.29 billion people in the world live on the U.S. equivalent of less than $1.25 a day. These are the poorest of the poor, living in extreme poverty. One of our missional priorities is to empower people to rise above their extreme poverty and to show Christ’s love for them.

These are the not-for-profit agencies that we support which care for people in the world's most desperately poor settings. We hope that you find ways to engage with them.  If you have questions or interest in getting involved, please contact those mentioned in the links below, or contact Jill Smith.  For a deeper understanding of this missional priority check out these books to read.
