Strategic Global Partners
Since 2010, Village Church has supported global mission efforts through various projects. All of our projects are done by joining with current organizations that are doing incredible work around the globe. We believe strong partnerships allow us to have the greatest global impact. We are now focused on partnerships within seven countries – Haiti, Guatemala, Iraq, India, Nepal, Greece and Uganda.
International Justice Mission (IJM)
International Justice Mission is a global organization protecting the poor from violence throughout the developing world. IJM partners with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems.
Village partnered with IJM for our 2016 Golf Tournament and together we were able to raise over $425,000 to rescue over 1000 individuals held in slavery.
We continue to partner with IJM on both strategic projects and short-term trips in India.
Love Does is a non-profit organization that does incredible compassion initiatives in some of the hardest countries to work in. They focus on education, refugees, human trafficking and injustice in post conflict zones. They currently have projects in five different countries. We partnered with them for our 2017 golf tournament and raised one million dollars to complete and help fund their newest project in Iraq, a hospital! One of the biggest motivators behind the work of Love Does is, not surprisingly, love. When presented with the immense needs and heartbreak of individuals and families who have faced unimaginable tragedies and loss, they feel their only answer is to do more.

Kuwasha means to spark or ignite. They exist to partner with organizations in Uganda to ignite transformational change through quality Christian education, healthcare, and community development. They operate 5 schools, a clinic, and community centre in southern Uganda.
