International Development Week

We at EMCC count it all joy that we, alongside the Global Church, get to demonstrate the good news of Jesus bringing hope and transformation everywhere. A value for World Partners, as we go, has been to assist global friends in their goals, as defined by them, in developing disciple-making focus, and addressing their community development needs. 

Engaging in IDW2023, we will be reflecting on 2 Kings 4:1-7 and share stories about global partners who are using what they have for the common good of their contexts and encouraging others to see the resources they do possess. EMCC have interacted with their stories. We hope that you will be encouraged how EMCC people have engaged with this work, of learning and connecting with the global church as they use what we have and trust for more.

Demonstrating the Good News

Development happens when a community mobilizes their resources to meet their needs, as defined by them. A community decides what must be done. Then, as they recognize the resources they already have, and as they see that God equips them to solve their own problems, the attitude of the community turns to hope [7 Resources Brochure, 2019].

You can support this kind of development.
