THE PAST: How it all began

When Vernon Brewer survived cancer, he knew God had a mission for his life. He just didn’t know what it was yet. Then in 1991, Vernon felt called to go to Russia and partner with Christians in Moscow to hand out Bibles to people across Eastern Europe. During that trip, he discovered the great need for both physical help and spiritual hope around the world. That year, he founded World Help as a way to mobilize others to help meet those urgent needs through Bible distribution, humanitarian aid, crisis response, church planting, and more.

Today, we focus on meeting urgent physical needs while also investing in sustainable solutions in the fight against poverty and spiritual darkness. Every need we help meet not only helps save a life, but also opens the doors for our partners around the world to share the love of Jesus with people who do not know Him.
