Covenant World Relief

Covenant World Relief has been the Evangelical Covenant Church’s response to human suffering and injustice in the world for more than 60 years. Through disaster relief and community development, we partner in the transformation of individuals, families, and communities. 90% of every gift goes directly to the work of relief. CWR's mission is to join God in loving, serving, and working together with the poor, the powerless, and the marginalized.

  • Relief is immediate assistance in times of natural or human-made disaster by providing water, shelter, and food.
  • Transformational Development is working with communities and families as they help themselves through micro-enterprise, micro-finance, sustainable water development, community health initiatives, agriculture, and sustainable food programs.
  • 2016's CWR offering received $1,500. 2017's CWR offering is being collected throughout Lent and will be received on Easter Sunday, April 16.
