Connecting the Body of Christ in Canada to walk with the global poor
Organizations can’t fight poverty on their own.
Get connected. We are stronger together.
Who we are
Kentro is a network of over 50+ organizations and individuals that are based in Canada and working to address global poverty and injustice from a Christ-centred perspective. We are the connecting point for all Canadian Christian relief and development organizations and professionals.
What we do
Kentro Christian Network moves people and organizations from a position of disconnection to connection. We link individuals and organizations into the bigger picture, so that we ALL know that we are not alone in this important work of addressing poverty and injustice. We learn from each other; collaborate together; and encourage one another.
Get connected and reach your full potential
Learn with your peers through regular webinars, communications, and training opportunities, as well as a constantly growing resource library, our list of highly skilled consultants, and special discounts from our world-class partners.
Gather as a community at regular events where you can rub shoulders (both online and in-person) with others who share your passion for poverty alleviation. Worship together, pray together, support one another and encourage each other.
Kentro Christian Network is a wealth of knowledge and experience. When we are united, we can utilize the best the Network has to offer, ultimately having a greater impact than one organization can have on its own.
Kentro Christian Network, formerly known as the CCRDA, started as a working group of the Canadian Centre for Christian Charities.
Started in 1984 and evolved to its own organization in 2007, it continues to be the central place for Canadian Christian agencies and individuals involved in international relief and development to encourage one another, cooperate, share expertise and experience.
$800 million in combined reach
Que vous soyez une grande organisation bien établie ou un acteur nouveau et émergent dans ce domaine, Kentro offre des opportunités continues d’apprendre, de partager et d’influencer de manière plus importante que n’importe quelle organisation peut le faire seule.
Excellence in development is about understanding how fundamental principles for human development are rooted in one’s faith and translated into effective practices that address people’s relationship with God, each other and their environment. Kentro membership allows us to explore these issues together.
It is an exciting time to belong to Kentro as they focus on strengthening their investment in relief and development organizations, so we in-turn can maximize our impact on lives and communities.
As a recent immigrant to Canada and then stepping into the Non-profit sector, my connection with the Kentro has been instrumental in me both better understanding the context of this space and meeting like-minded leaders.
Kentro is an important hub for organizations interested in listening, sharing, and enhancing our capacity to love our neighbours. It’s a pleasure to go shoulder to shoulder with Kentro to provide forums of mutuality, curiosity, and care for each other’s missions. Kentro represents the vision we seek for all our work – cooperation in the service of helping more people. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that!
Kentro promotes a vision where excellence and performance matters. In our fast-paced industry where we observe the convergence of new partnerships from private, public and academic sectors, this idea resonates with me the most! If you want a place where you can have discussions, share ideas and promote new innovations where people are respectful, reflective and prayerful – then Kentro is the place to do that.
Kentro exemplifies the reason Fullwell exists. In service to member organizations, it’s an honor to work with Kentro and the other preferred partners to contribute to our combined global impact.
