Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) has released various resources for churches to amplify the messages to their international ministries. The MEDA newsletter, Congregational Connections, is sent out on a quarterly basis and provides exclusive content that faith leaders can use to encourage their congregations to increase their impact around the globe.
Resources are also available on MEDA’s website for individuals who are curious about incorporating their faith into work, including magazines, videos, prayer requests and requests for speakers. For individuals who are interested in integrating their faith and support of MEDA’s mission, a new community of MEDA Connecters provides resources to engage with MEDA in their own congregations.

MEDA is an international economic development organization that creates business solutions to poverty and began as an association of Mennonite businesspeople.
Since 1953, MEDA has worked with neighbors—near and far—to equip entrepreneurs with the tools they need to thrive in business, lift their families out of poverty and support their communities. Through partnerships and collaboration, MEDA ensures hardworking people around the globe can fulfill their God-given potential to earn a livelihood.
As an organization founded in faith and supported by an association of Christians who actively pursue the expression of faith in the workplace, MEDA offers their members opportunities to explore and journey with others as they strive to live out what it means to be “faithful in daily work—that intersection between faith and business.
For nearly 70 years, MEDA has been creating business solutions to poverty that are sustainable, scalable, measurable and replicable. MEDA welcomes all who share its values and want to join in its mission. Donations to MEDA are multiplied in impact seven times on average. MEDA has offices in Waterloo and Ottawa, Ontario, Washington, DC, and Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and internationally.
