Social Responsibility

We are committed to social responsibility because
Jesus calls us to serve the least of these.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in… Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

Matthew 25:35,40

Jesus calls us to be salt and light in our communities.

"You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden… In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew 5:13,14,16

God calls us to stand for justice.

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.“

Micah 6:8

“Social Responsibility points the finger back to you and me. We are responsible because we know that God loves the orphan, the widow, the poor, the foreigner and the exploited and provides numerous mandates for us to do the same. The heart of Social Responsibility ministry is having the heart of God towards people in difficult circumstances.” 

 — Pastor David Webb —

HOW EVERY NATION PRACTICES SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We practice social responsibility by serving the poor and marginalised in our communities and cities.

We practice social responsibility through numerous initiatives in underprivileged communities.

We pursue social responsibility through compassionate service and by promoting justice in our diverse cultural and political contexts.

INITIATIVE SPOTLIGHT MARCH 2024:

Thandanani: One of the many Social Responsibility initiatives that are being run in our regional family is Thandanani. This initiative, run in Johannesburg, aims to assist displaced (homeless) people in their community. The primary form of outreach is discipleship in the Word, but the practical aspects include helping people find shelter, assisting them with employment through the church’s car guard programme, and assistance in applying for lost documents. Thandanani also provides cosmetics and clothing to help boost confidence, and help with skills development in the search for employment.

At the end of 2023, Thandanani had their Christmas party, where testimonies were shared about how joining Thandanani has changed lives and helped people grow in their faith in God. Here are just a few pictures from the year and, specifically, the Christmas party.
