Resurrection works through partners in many of our contexts to promote healthy lives and well-being for all. These partnerships take many different forms including food security efforts, nutrition information, clean water, hygiene education, and quality medical care.
Education leads to economic prosperity individually as well as in the global marketplace. Through education, indigenous individuals become capable leaders who have the power to change their communities for the better. Resurrection partners with local schools in educational sponsorships, continuing education for teachers, and supporting Pre-K education, all of which creates hope in young people for a better future.
By teaching members how to save money, create a small business, and loan money to each other to start or grow a business, the decision-making process in a group dynamic strengthens vulnerable populations. Resurrection believes that by empowering individuals to lead themselves out of poverty in a group that supports, encourages, and helps each other, they know they have the power to change their future regardless of their present condition.
At Resurrection, we are called to build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians. We see this vision expanding beyond Kansas City to reach the world. We work with Methodists around the world to partner with their lay leaders and church staff in growing their churches. We also seek to be the "church in action," working alongside our partner congregations to do outreach and service in the communities they serve.
