Over the last several decades, non-profits have played an increasing role advocating and providing services for the global poor and disenfranchised. The initial role of the Christian non-profit was to bring the church safely into a sustainable relationship of trust and service with the communities they have chosen to serve. Non-profits are not to replace the biblical authority and responsibility of the church in providing financial and physical resources to the poor. God has called the church to partner with the non-profit to eradicate global poverty, to evangelize the gospel and to establish joint methodology that restores dignity and human flourishing to the widow and the orphan.
