Park Street Church partners with various organizations in Boston and abroad to train, send out volunteers, offer support and provide leadership.
The Whole Gospel
Believing in the importance of bringing the gospel—in word and in deed—into the very heart of global suffering and poverty, Park Street Church has partnered with ministries that share in our vision.
World Relief was launched at Park Street Church in 1944 as the War Relief Commission. Since then they have grown into an international relief and development organization works in more than 20 nations on four continents with a focus on economic development, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, maternal and child health, child development, disaster response, refugee resettlement and immigrant services. As the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, World Relief equips churches to help victims of poverty, disease, hunger, war, disaster and persecution. World Relief exists to empower the local Church to serve the most vulnerable.
Since 1993, World Relief has been working in partnership with local churches in Haiti on health initiative programs with an emphasis on HIV/AIDS and maternal and child Health. There is also a commitment to serving orphans and vulnerable children. After the devastating 2010 earthquake, World Relief was able to quickly distribute needed supplies such as water, food, and tarps to affected communities as they already were a presence in the country. The organization’s mission has now expanded to include an agricultural plan that is based upon a community wide self-sustaining model.
Working together with World Relief we are supporting the local church in Papua Indonesia by enabling Christians to become agents of transformation and care particularly in the area of HIV/AIDS.
In response to the devastation of Haiti following the 2010 earthquake, Park Street Church has begun partnering with World Relief’s rebuilding ventures—including the restoration of a local school and church in Carrefour Feullie and working alongside Kings Hospital in Port-au-Prince.
Park Street Church sent a team of missionaries in 2010 and 2011. The 2010 team visited Port-au-Prince and Jacmel respectively. One group traveled around the communities of Port-au-Prince conducting site visits for future collaborations while the other team was based in Jacmel. The 2011 team split up into two groups as well. One group conducted week-long teacher trainings while the other group interacted with children from the Caped Orphanage in Carrefour Feuilles via a VBS curriculum. Planning for 2012 trip and applications from new team members are now being accepted. The 2012 team will be involved in either an agricultural project or interactions with children.
Since the summer of 2010, Park Street Church has been richly blessed by the connection and developing partnership with Kings Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Kings Hospital was established by doctors Hubert and Junie Morquette, and was named one of the top eight hospitals in the relief effort after the devastating earthquake. On the hospital grounds are also a school and an orphanage that supports 35 children ages 3-18 years old. Over the past two years Park Street has sent short-term medical teams made up of doctors, surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, EMTs, and students to participate in outpatient triage and examination, inpatient rehabilitation and care, and during free time, to engage with the children from the orphanage. The desire is to continue to establish this partnership long-term and serve Kings Hospital and the Morquette’s as the medical needs in Haiti change and develop with the country’s recovery.
[CCX IN UKRAINE]
Since 2001 Park Street Church has partnered with CCX, the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, of Ukraine. Over the years the partnership has provided funding for various projects and facilities, but most importantly has promoted relationships in empowering and training students and young leaders for leadership in church and campus ministries. We are excited in joining together with CCX in helping launch a mission movement for CCX Ukraine and beyond. For more information about CCX, click here.
