Global Mission and Service

In addition to many places worldwide where Brethren are active with volunteer work or emergency assistance, the Church of the Brethren carries out mission projects in a number of countries. Some of these projects are the fruits of long relationships that span generations. Others are newer efforts in places where we have sensed God leading us today. In all cases, we work in mutual relationship with individuals and organizations in the local setting—seeking both to give and to learn.

Other parts of this website have information on Brethren Disaster Ministries, Brethren Volunteer Service, Children's Disaster Services, workcamps, the Global Food Crisis Fund, the Global Women's Project, and peacemaking.
