World Concern

Skilled professionals are welcomed in many developing countries to share their expertise. That's why World Concern sends veterinarians, agriculturalists, teachers, and many others to share Christ's love through everyday contact with families around the World.

Families are the cornerstone of every community, yet many are held captive and powerless in the grips of poverty and oppression. That's why World Concern is committed to serving the poorest families worldwide…one person at a time. By careful consideration, we are able to determine which countries and families are in most desperate need of food relief, life skill enrichment, and Christian compassion.

We share the Gospel by life example in culturally sensitive ways. In His own ministry, Jesus shared the Good News through personal, compassionate contact with men, women, and children desperately in need of hope.
