This truth undergirds the Crisis Response ministry of SGA. Our primary object is to teach God’s Word and assist God’s people to preach and testify to the saving power of the Gospel of Christ, but SGA has always sought to care for the ‘whole person’. The spiritual health of people is paramount, but James insists that Biblical religion also addresses people’s physical and material needs. From the earliest demanding overland journeys through the Iron Curtain, Gospel love has been expressed in practical care alongside the preaching and teaching of the Bible’s message of salvation in Christ.
Aid forwarded in emergency situations to relieve immediate needs, and to begin to repair and build for the future
SGA channels its humanitarian support to, and through local churches and their leaders, with whom a deep relationship of trust has been built over the years. In several countries SGA works in partnership with ‘sister’ mission agencies whose heartbeat for the Gospel and care for the needy is identical, such as Bread of Life in Serbia and Bibel-Mission in Central Asia.
