Church Partnership

The Church: An Engine of Transformation

World Relief is distinguished from other relief and development organizations by our direct partnership with local churches, both in the United States and throughout the world. We believe that something wholly unique and special happens when the Church unites to stand with the vulnerable — offering its talents, resources and time to the transforming work God is doing throughout the world. For over 70 years, World Relief has been equipping local churches around the world to catalyze a movement of change, resulting in thriving families, flourishing communities, and strengthened churches. 

Mobilizing Congregations

We recognize that partnership is a process and must be beneficial for both the church and for World Relief. In Sacramento, churches join World Relief by sharing their skills, abilities, and resources to welcome and integrate refugees into our community.

This year World Relief Sacramento will resettle almost two-thousand refugees from Afghanistan, Ukraine, Russia, and Syria. Our desire is to create opportunities for local congregations to lovingly serve refugees. We hope that churches will experiences the joy of blessing and being blessed by our newest refugee neighbors.
