What We Do

Glorifying God through lasting change.

We advance the gospel by partnering with local churches and their communities to discover and overcome their greatest obstacles together.

Our Lutheran heritage gives us strong relationships with church communities around the world, including in the United States. We’re serving communities of real people, real faces, and real needs. In partnership with our global Lutheran network, we work alongside people in those communities because they know best what’s needed most deeply. By listening to local leaders and accessing our combined knowledge, wisdom, and resources as the body of Christ, we’re able to co-innovate solutions to very real problems.

 

Our solutions always integrate three criteria

Meaningful local relationships

We partner with local community members to empower and embolden them to create sustainable change.

Gospel proclamation

Sharing Jesus' healing love and redemption is at the center of every initiative and every interaction.

Christian welfare

Everywhere we go, we work to meet the human needs of the people we serve, as identified by local leaders who know what is needed most deeply.

Our mission put into action

Together we are working alongside communities at home and around the world. Everything we do is possible thanks to the support of people like you. People who believe it is possible to bring real change to people's lives—change that is not just for the moment, but for eternity.

Meaningful local relationships

We mobilize and embolden believers to strategically activate their skills.

We prepare, organize, and deploy believers across a wide variety of gifts and skill sets to meet the physical and spiritual needs of communities around the world. When we discover the needs of a community, we mobilize their own local resources and supplement them by recruiting the specific talents that are needed to create the solutions and build the systems most needed there.

 

What our volunteers say

Christian welfare

Together we serve the real needs of communities.

We’ve learned to assume we don’t have all the answers. Helping a community overcome their obstacles always begins with one thing: listening. We like to ask, “What makes you lose sleep at night?” This question always connects us to real needs such as food security, access to water, health, nutrition, education, and more. While exploring these issues, we always keep in mind the deeper, most urgent question of salvation. Both spiritual and physical needs are central to our work.

So whether it’s building water solutions in Indonesia, or providing disability care in Malawi, or addressing the foster care crisis in the United States, we innovate solutions to real problems as a demonstration of God’s radical love and grace.

Gospel proclamation

Our aim is physical and spiritual healing for the people we serve, which results in lasting change that glorifies God.

At Kingdom Workers, we know that each initiative and every relationship is an opportunity to introduce people to Jesus. In scripture, we see many encounters with Jesus where He causes both physical and spiritual healing. Sometimes it’s the physical healing that comes first and sometimes it’s spiritual, but they are connected. Whatever the need is, physical healing is just the beginning. So when we speak about lasting change, we’re talking about an eternal impact that brings glory to God.
