Reformed Church in America - RCA

Reformed Church in America (RCA) Global Mission is a ministry of compassion and hope. Its purpose is to work with partners to alleviate hunger and poverty and to seek justince for people around the world. RCA Global Mission aims to fulfill the biblical mandate to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and visit the imprisoned (Matthew 25:35-36).

RCA Global Mission accomplishes its mission through its partners by:

  • Providing emergency relief to disaster victims and others in need of immediate assistance.
  • Participating in rehabilitation for people who have lost their homes and jobs.
  • Encouraging development of long-term solutions to overcome the problems of hunger and poverty.
  • Seeking justice through advocacy on behalf of poor and needy people.
  • Challenging RCA members to learn more about the root causes of hunger and poverty and to give generously of their resources to help their neighbors who are poor and hungry.

One of the distinctive features of RCA Global Mission has been its work to alleviate hunger and poverty with a variety of partners who share that goal. One of the RCA Global Mission’s earliest (1946) partners is Church World Service (CWS). Today CWS remains a strong and reliable partner in emergency response, in service to refugees and displaced persons, and in social and economic development.

Other RCA Global Mission partners include World Renew, Foods Resource Bank, Bread for the World, World Vision and RCA mission personnel and partners around the world.
