The World Changers – Making a positive difference by serving and sharing.


World Changers is a team that I knew nothing about until today.

Perhaps you have not heard of World Changers either.

Mission of World Changers

We exist to serve churches in their mission of making disciples by providing missions experiences that develop the heart of students for serving others and sharing the Gospel.

President Jimmy Carter made a positive change when he initiated the organizing of Habitat for Humanity. While habitat doesn’t actually claim to be a Christian mission, they are certainly making a positive difference in the world and many of the workers are Christian.

When we feel discouraged and begin to feel as Elijah did, that there is no one left among us who truly serves God in America, God often shows up to remind us that there are those who are quietly going about His work and who have not bowed the knee to Baal.

1 Kings 19:1Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. 2Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” 3Then he was afraid, and he arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

4But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he asked that he might die, saying, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my fathers.” 5And he lay down and slept under a broom tree. And behold, an angel touched him and said to him, “Arise and eat.” 6And he looked, and behold, there was at his head a cake baked on hot stones and a jar of water. And he ate and drank and lay down again. 7And the angel of the Lord came again a second time and touched him and said, “Arise and eat, for the journey is too great for you.” 8And he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mount of God.

The Lord Speaks to Elijah

9There he came to a cave and lodged in it. And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 10He said, “I have been very jealous for the Lord, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.”….

18“Yet I will leave 7,000 in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him.” 

These are putting into practice what James taught.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  James 1:22

Jesus is the Word and He went about serving others. So should we.

May God bless these World Changers.
