World Renew

World Renew, is a relief, development, and educational ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in North America. World Renew partners with local agencies that understand local needs. Together CRWRC/World Renew and its partners find ways to provide lasting change for people in more than 30 countries around the world. World Renew believes that by helping people help themselves the chains of poverty can be stripped away. World Renew is driven by the call of Micah 6:8b: "And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

World Renew responds to the Micah Call by:
1. Listening to those in need and collaborating with local partners to ensure community development is relevant for those World Renew seeks to help
2. Making the most of our resources- including staff, donations, partners and programs
3. Building long-term relationships with communities during disaster response
4. Assisting local church leaders become resources for the poor in their community
5. Promoting justice, advocacy and civil society through Biblical justice education

World Renew has bi-national offices in Burlington, Ontario and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Transformational Development: In poor communities around the world and in North America, World Renew works with local churches and organizations to bring about change. Our goal is complete community transformation to build up the Kingdom of God on earth.
