Why is the Evangelical Covenant Church partnering with World Vision?
As the Covenant Church we are moved by stories from DR Congo. Although there are stories of war, profound material need and lack of basic infrastructure we are compelled by a different kind of story: we are compelled by a story of hope for a bright future for the people of Equateur. We stand with our Congolese friends and leaders because they want to keep their children healthy, in school and with opportunities for their dreams to come true. This is the hope that compels us. Joining together with World Vision, this partnership is already seeing sustainable community development changing the lives of thousands through clean water, education, health, agriculture, economic development and advocacy.

We have a heart for the disadvantaged around the world. Crosstown families sponsor over 40 children in the Equateur province of Congo (click here for more info), and in 2013 our Team World Vision marathon runners raised over $30,000 for clean water projects in Zambia. Would you like to run? Check out the Team World Vision website for more details.
