Collaborating for the Kingdom

Here are links to some like-minded organizations that we recommend:


New Friars organizations working in slum communities:

InnerChange We are InnerCHANGE, a Christian order among the poor. We send teams to live and work in marginalized neighborhoods around the world – places most people want to avoid or ignore. We seek to live out the good news of Jesus among the poor, both with words and deeds.
Servant Partners
Servant Partners sends teams of missionaries to slum communities to share their lives with the urban poor and live out the Gospel among their neighbors.
We immerse ourselves in the life of neighbourhoods facing urban poverty, joining the risen Jesus to seek transformation from the bottom up. We live and serve as small, responsive neighbourhood-based teams within cities in Thailand, New Zealand and Australia.
Word Made Flesh Word Made Flesh is community of people vocationally called and committed to serving Jesus among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor. Our communities are spread out all around the world in South America, South Asia, Eastern Europe, West Africa.


Intentional Christian communities in Western inner cities:

Urban Vision We are a New Zealand based contemporary Order following Jesus on the margins.
Waiters Union The Waiters Union is a network of residents in West End, Brisbane, Australia, who are committed to developing a sense of community in the locality with our neighbours, including those who are marginalised, in the radical tradition of Jesus of Nazareth.


Internship Opportunities:

Global Urban Trek The Global Urban Trek is part of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s summer Global Projects. It is a 7 week trip designed to immerse college students in urban slums around the world, align their heart with God’s, and help them discern if Jesus is calling them to this context in the future.


Ministries in the slums:

Alongsiders We equip compassionate young Christians in poor nations to walk alongside those who walk alone: to love, welcome and encourage the most vulnerable children and orphans, in their own communities.


Development Strategies:

The AVM (Alliance for Vulnerable Mission) seeks to encourage wider use of mission and development strategies that depend on locally available resources and local languages. These strategies are “vulnerable” in the sense that they do not have fringe benefits built into them, deliberately or otherwise. They will therefore fail unless or until there is strong local confidence in their spiritual or developmental value.
