Connecting the Body of Christ in Canada to walk with the global poor

Get connected. We are stronger together.

Our History

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.

50+ Organizations
$800 million in combined reach

Whether you are a large, well-established organization or a new and emerging actor in this field, Kentro offers continual opportunities to learn, share and influence in ways that are greater than any one organization can do on its own.

World Vision
Member Organization

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.

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.
