Willow Creek Canada and World Vision Canada are pleased to partner together to leverage our respective strengths around training Christian Leaders and delivering holistic solutions that serve the world’s most vulnerable people. Together, we will call and inspire the global Church and its leaders to thoughtfully engage these complex issues and respond as God leads.
Global Refugee Initiative
Of the many crises impacting our world today, the greatest is the displacement of over 60 million people due to war, violence and conflict. Over 12 million alone are Syrian refugees, half of them children. In 2016, our partnership will focus on inspiring thousands of Christian Leaders to help the millions of displaced children and their families in this crisis. If you’d like to give a one-time donation to help with the Syria Crisis, you can do so here.

“The refugee crisis is more than a political issue. It’s an issue that serious-minded Christ-followers cannot ignore. Christians, especially the leaders amongst us, must engage and figure out solutions to serve those in great need with the love we receive from Christ.”
~Bill Hybels, Founder and Chairman of the Board, Willow Creek Association
