Main Article Content

Peter Greer


Against a backdrop of division in our world today, followers of Christ are invited to engage in relief, development, and advocacy efforts together. There is a new movement of organizations and leaders abandoning an individualistic approach for a collaborative one, and this kind of cross-sector teamwork is radically changing the landscape of international development. From Christ’s prayer for our unity to His exhortation for us to seek first the Kingdom of God, we are invited to participate in a mission greater than anything we could ever accomplish on our own.
