Ecclesia Relief and Development
Ecclesia Relief and Development (ERD) networks with various ministries and organizations, transcending denominational barriers, to bring practical aid to those in need around the world for the express purpose of the expansion of God's Kingdom.
Since 1975 we have worked with Baptists, Methodists, Charismatics and many others to bring the hope of God's love to the nations. From clothing and feeding the needy, to bringing medical aid to the injured, ERD ministers to the physical and spiritual needs of the whole person. We have responded to disasters like the Mexico City earthquake in 1985, the Okalahoma City bombing, the attack in New York on 9/11, and many more. ERD has reached out to nations like Thailand, the former Soviet Union, China and Haiti, among others.
Ecclesia Relief and Development is associated and works closely with Ecclesia College. ERD provides EC students with a major outlet for practicum.
