hen Jesus came to usher in the kingdom of God on earth, He turned the world’s value system upside down. To a culture obsessed with position and power, He modeled servanthood and love, lifting up the lowly and embracing those who were marginalized. In fact, in His very first public sermon, Jesus announced that He had come "to proclaim good news to the poor ... to set the oppressed free" (Luke 4:18). Compassion and justice for the poor was top on Jesus' mind.

When the world asks, 'What is God like?' we should be able to say, 'Look at the church.'
—William R.L. Haley
At Willow Creek, it's top on our minds, too. Willow's Compassion & Justice ministries fight local and global poverty and injustice. Whether serving local guests in our Care Center or meeting the tangible needs of our brothers and sisters in Latin America or Africa, Willow seeks to bring holistic care—and the hope of Christ—to those who are struggling against poverty, both locally and around the world.
