Is evangelism a part of World Vision’s projects?

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy agency, not an evangelistic agency. We do not demand that people hear any religious message or convert to Christianity before, during or after receiving assistance. Our primary concern is to help the world’s poorest achieve a better standard of living, by working with them to transform their circumstances. Our focus is to respond to human need, and our compassion and professionalism reflect our faith. In the context of their work, World Vision staff may share their Christian faith with people, but only with those who welcome dialogue on faith. Whenever appropriate, we work in partnership with local churches and other faith-based groups in an effort to work inclusively and collaboratively within existing community structures.
