Engaging your church in a global partnership

A church partnership with World Vision emerges out of genuine relationship and shared vision.   Together, we take the time to co-create the values and desired outcomes that will transform your congregation members, local community and a community in need overseas or in Australia. 

Rather than reinvent the wheel, or do something that’s not our expertise, we believe it’s better to partner with someone who really has that power and expertise… and that’s been confirmed as I’ve been into the field many times now.
