The goal of World Relief is to empower the local church to serve those who are less able and more vulnerable in our community and the world. The would like to see those who are most vulnerable to be transformed economically, socially, and spiritually. They hope to achieve these goals with their seven values. The Example of Jesus
as we serve those who are suffering from poverty and injustice, regardless of color, belief, or gender, as part of God’s plan to redeem, reconcile, and restore the world. We seek to follow Jesus by living holy, humble, and honest lives individually and corporately.The Local Church
as a primary agent of bringing peace, justice, and love to a broken world. The integrated “word” and “deed” dimensions of God’s mandate, as evidenced through the church’s integral, or transformational, mission are necessary to bringing reconciliation and restoration to God, others, and the environment.People
whether staff, volunteers, clients, beneficiaries, donors, and partners, as important actors in bringing peace, love, and justice. We recognize and affirm World Relief as a multicultural organization and seek to understand and respect the multiplicity of cultures among us. As we seek change in the world, we recognize that we, too, are changed, by those we serve.Excellence/Continuous Improvement
in all our program initiatives and support services, following best practices and standards in a manner that is sustainable to the community from a spiritual, social, and economic perspective. We also seek to apply our human and financial resources in such ways that maximize impact and sustain benefits to the greatest number of people.Empowerment
by prioritizing the leadership and participation of those we serve, whether people, churches, or local institutions, as critical to creating and sustaining change. We seek to catalyze a movement of worldwide volunteers to multiply impact, and we value capacity-building as a means towards that end.Partnership
by seeking, facilitating, and promoting collaboration among all stakeholders, including local governments, the worldwide church, mission agencies, other NGO’s, and the business community, recognizing partnership as essential to serving the most vulnerable. We believe each expression of the worldwide Church has a unique and interdependent role in bringing peace and justice to the world.Prayer
as the priority and foundational to accomplishing our mission.
Volunteers play a vital role in supporting World Relief’s work. Serving throughout the organization both here in the US as well as internationally, volunteer and internship opportunities provide individuals with a deeper understanding of Christian relief and development work.
We are currently working on establishing our intern and volunteer positions for the next 12 months. Volunteer and internship positions with World Relief are unpaid and range in duration from two months to two years. Volunteers are asked to cover their own expenses, including travel. Many times colleges, universities, and home churches may have a mechanism in place to help with the expenses. World Relief also has a fundraising support mechanism called the Ambassador Program which allows volunteers to utilize our capacity to market, track and expense funds raised.
Volunteering with World Relief equips individuals with professional and spiritual development tools to impact the globe and further God’s Kingdom. Join us in our efforts to bring hope to the suffering.
