On today’s episode, Cameron sits down with author and former World Vision president Rich Stearns.
Rich was a very successful corporate CEO, which you’ll hear about, and he left it all for something more significant. For the last 20 years he’s led World Vision USA, the largest Christian humanitarian organization in the world. World Vision works in relief efforts, holistic development and advocacy—working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
World Vision has a unique strategy of holistic change. They work in communities to make sustainable impact affecting education, health care, economic development, and the promotion of justice. The goal is always to eventually hand the keys over and leave. They work with local leadership to give a hand-up, not just hand-outs.
It’s not hyperbole to say that Rich Stearns’ vision, faith and leadership has literally saved millions of lives and changed the world.
Rich’s story shows how the gospel—the whole gospel—was always meant to be a world changing social revolution. And it’s a revolution that begins with each of us.
