For nearly 70 years, World Vision has been going to the ends of the earth, where few go. Because Jesus is alive in the hardest places to be a child.
As a global Christian humanitarian organization, we partner with children, families, and their communities to help them reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. With Jesus’ love at the center of all that we do, always, we follow His example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. Serving every child we can – of any faith or none. Through our efforts, we’ve impacted the lives of more than 200 million children. Through World Vision’s work, every 60 seconds… a family gets water… a hungry child is fed… a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.
Our vision for every child is life in all its fullness. Our prayer for every heart is the will to make it so.
Churches and their leaders are our indispensable partners in this effort. In the faith communities that we serve, we work alongside the local church to bring better futures for vulnerable children. We partner with church leaders to disciple and activate their congregations around God’s heart for the poor.
Our prayer is that The Connected Generation study will help equip Christian leaders and others not just to understand 18-35 years-olds, but to put this research into action. As the study revealed, this is a generation eager to make an impact in the world around them. And they want their church to be a central part of that. World Vision can help to fill that gap – providing practical ways congregations can get involved in solving some of the biggest humanitarian issues of our time – from clean water, to refugee relief to trafficking. Over the coming year we want to keep the conversation going, because we know that when we work together we can change lives – both for the churches we partner with and those in poverty we serve.
Rev. Andrew Morley, CEO of World Vision International, shares his perspective on insights from The Connected Generation study. His background leading tech companies, within his local church and the world’s largest Christian humanitarian organisations allows a unique understanding of Millennials and Gen Z.
