We know the world isn’t as it should be. Why do poverty and injustice persist? How can we make a difference? We’ve got big questions, and some of the answers we used to rely on just don’t cut it anymore.
That’s why God’s story of restoration through reconciliation is so radical. In Jesus, God is reconciling all things into relationship with himself and with each other, in all facets of life. And he invites us, as ambassadors for reconciliation, to join him.
We’re daring to ask questions that will challenge us to live for a restored world—to fight for justice for the poor, to be generous givers of what we have. And crucially, we’re not doing this alone. We’re working with local Christian Partners, as they help communities emerge from poverty. And we’re encouraging and equipping each other along the way.
Better isn’t just possible; it’s inevitable. As we act, we do so knowing that good can happen, not just for people experiencing poverty, but also as God transforms our hearts and minds.
You’ll be connected with other Better World Ambassadors through cohort groups and events as we encourage each other towards generosity and action.
Together, we’ll ask questions and find answers about God’s agenda for poverty, and what restoration looks like when it comes to injustice, exploitation, and communities in need.
Explore practical ways to act for a better world (and be challenged to do things that might be outside your comfort zone!), give financially towards the work of our Partners, as together we play a part in God’s story of restoration.

Being a Better World Ambassador is a journey, and we’re all travelling together. As we explore what God’s plan for restoration looks like, here are some resources to help you along the way.
If you haven’t already, scroll up and read the ‘The Ambassador Community Is About’ section.
The Better World Ambassador community is all about journeying with others who want to engage with God’s story of restoration. As a community there will be opportunities to connect with others. You can join a cohort, link in with webinars, attend an event or engage in ethical advocacy, to name a few. These are all safe places to bring your questions. We’re also creating a variety of resources—with the Ambassador community in mind—that will help us grow together.
After signing up, expect a short series of emails from us, welcoming you to the community and detailing opportunities to connect.
Ambassador can be a loaded term for some. We acknowledge that. Paul, in his second letter to the Church in Corinth unpacks that a bit. In Jesus, God is reconciling all things into relationship with himself and with each other, in all facets of life. And he invites us, as Ambassadors for reconciliation, to join him (2 Corinthians 5:18).
The Ambassador community has been created to explore what that means. Ambassadors are inherently representatives of something. Living ‘as though God we’re making His appeal through us’ to a hurting and broken world it’s about journeying towards a deeper understanding of what it means to be representatives of God’s restorative work in God’s world.
No. While we see financial partnership as a key way for Ambassadors to engage with God’s story of restoration across the world, we’re all on our own journey and belonging in the Ambassador community is not dependent on your giving.
If you choose to partner financially through monthly giving, your generous donation goes directly to our ‘where needed most’ fund. This enables more dynamic and diverse responses from us as an organisation—with funds spread across our multiple projects, going directly to our Partners in the areas with the most need at any given time. This diversity results in a big impact for any amount given.
