In Matt 28, Jesus has clearly indicated to his followers the right attitude and action toward those who are having physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

In disaster relief, what does the Church have to offer a world experiencing an unprecendented increase in natural disasters and global environmental crisis? How can we be a channel to extend Christ's love to the needy during a crisis and follow up with community development works after the crisis? How can we prepare the Church to engage in more practical ministries and be equipped to make a difference?

In community development, when we work alongside communities to provide practical answers to real needs with the right Kingdom princicples, we can be able to see Christ transforming the communities, which will then be able to make an impact for the Gospel to other communities.
