Who We Are

Equipping the Church to Walk alongside People Who Are Poor

Poverty is much more than an empty bank account.

It’s the collective result of sin and brokenness in the world—everything from broken individuals and families to broken governments and businesses.

But there’s good news: part of Christ’s mission on earth was to preach the gospel to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, and proclaim liberty to the captives (Luke 4:18). Jesus is in the business of restoring the brokenness that leads to poverty.

The church has the privilege of continuing that mission. In fact, as the hands and feet of Christ in a community, something unique happens in the local church. The local church is where people—whether materially poor or not—encounter Jesus’ love, compassion, and transformative power as they are enfolded into the family of God.

That’s why everything Chalmers does begins and ends with the church. We equip churches with resources and tools to walk alongside people who are poor, breaking the spiritual, social, and material bonds of poverty. As a result, churches model Jesus’ heart for the poor in practical ways, showing His care and power over every part of life.
