Away from Evangelicalism: Reflections on Changes at World Vision

As they operate in ever more diverse contexts, faith-based humanitarian organizations face important questions about their identities. As the top diplomat for World Vision, a humanitarian organization with a $2.6 billion annual budget, 40,000 employees, and an established Christian identity, Thomas Getman grappled with these questions, searching for a way of working that respected the organizationÂ’'s faith heritage while embracing the pluralistic contexts in which it now operates. In this event, Getman shared his personal reflections on faith-based humanitarian assistance over the last decade, as well as its prospects for the future.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Mortara Center for International Studies.
