LWF Member Churches

LWF is a global communion of 148 member churches. Where possible, World Service works with local churches in the field of diakonia – service to others. We continue to seek closer collaboration with member churches to ensure our approach is most relevant and durable to affected communities.

Related Organizations

World Service has long-standing, vital relationships with agencies of LWF member churches involved in humanitarian assistance and development. Related organizations provide a major share of program funding, and collaborate closely in areas such as program planning and operations, policy development, joint advocacy, and staff secondment. The landscape continues to change as some related organizations seek to expand their own operations through country offices, including in countries where we have a presence. Strategic discussions with all related organizations will continue, with a view to further develop a mutually beneficial cooperation.
