A Partnership with Food for the Hungry in Central America


Do you want to be a part of God’s renewal of your neighborhood and the world?

Join us as we explore how Food for the Hungry (FH) assists local leaders and churches in “graduating their communities out of extreme poverty.” There will be multiple opportunities to explore how we can engage in a long-term partnership with FH and our brothers and sisters in Nicaragua.


The BGAV wants to make a positive difference around the world, together, addressing issues like poverty. We are entering into a new relationship with Food for the Hungry (FH), an organization with a solid reputation for sustainable, mutually transforming community development. They work with local, indigenous leaders, utilizing community partnerships and child sponsorships. Their goal is “to graduate communities out of extreme poverty” based on a timeline of 7-10 years.

Four ways to engage:

1.    Pray for the specific community and region. Pray that we would all be open to God’s mission in our own communities and beyond and that through this partnership many BGAV churches would work together to make a significant difference in the world. Pray that we would reach our goal to have an initial 100 churches on board at some level by the official launch in November 2021.

2.    Church-to-community partnership: Your church can assist a specific community as they work toward graduating from extreme poverty. FH can facilitate mutually transformative service trips or visits for you to engage with your community, in which you can engage with community members as they work toward building a sustainable future.

3.     Host a Child Sponsor Sunday for children in the region we partner with.

4.    Give toward the community development projects we are funding in the region.
