Welcome to Word & Deed Ministries!

Welcome! We are delighted to have you visit our website. After having a look around, please don't hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

Below is a brief introduction to Word & Deed North America.

Our Mission

To address the spiritual and physical needs of people in the developing world in accordance with biblical principles.

Our Strategy

To communicate the predicament of the suffering in the developing world to the people of North America so that they are given the opportunity to respond to their needs in love, motivated by thankfulness for God’s grace in their lives.

To partner with Christian organizations in the developing world on a wide variety of projects including child sponsorship, Christian Education, orphan care, disaster relief and vocational training, while providing accountability and encouragement for our partners, as well as timely updates to all supporters.

Our Methods

A focus on empowering each needy person to eventually provide for themselves in recognition of the dignity they have as God’s image bearers, having been made both to work and to worship.

An insistence on the Gospel being central to each ongoing project.

A careful use of field trips, interviews, correspondence, and application procedures to ensure that potential partners (churches and missions) and projects make responsible use of the funds provided and are motivated by a love for God and their neighbor.

A focus on developing indigenous leadership so that their capacity to monitor and administer their own projects increases.

Consistent monitoring and supervision of ongoing projects.

To mobilize and educate churches of North America through timely updates in the form of presentations, quarterly magazines, church bulletins, emails and website articles in order to raise awareness of the plight of the needy.

What is emphasized at Word & Deed

A Gospel focus (Concern for man’s eternal destiny and the extension of the Kingdom of God.)

Targeting self-sufficiency under Christ (Teaching the needy to provide for themselves rather than providing for them, which only encourages a culture of dependence.)

A reliance on indigenous partner organizations in the developing world (Relying on the skills and assets of our partners rather than relying on North American skills and assets.)
