International Disaster Emergency Service (IDES), provided Worldwide

I.D.E.S. seeks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of suffering people throughout the world in the name of Jesus Christ. We work in partnership with Christian Churches / Churches of Christ in the U.S. and their missionaries overseas.

Our projects fall into one of five “Focus Areas”: Disaster assistance, Hunger relief, Development, Medical care, and Evangelism.

Nearly all our projects touch on the priority of caring for the poor, the sick, the hungry and the homeless. This is at center of our mission and purpose.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
— Matthew 25:34-36

Additionally, all of our projects are connected to local churches / missions who ensure that people who are helped with physical needs also hear the Good News about Jesus, the only One who can meet their spiritual needs.

We greatly appreciate the financial and prayerful support we receive from your church family. We want you to know that your generous gifts are making an immediate difference in the lives of hurting people the world over, just as they are making an eternal difference. In nation after nation, lost souls are being brought into the kingdom of God as hurting people hear the Good News of God’s love and experience that love in action.
