Please contact us to arrange a speaking request. We receive a high volume of requests and carefully consider all requests, but we are only able to accept a small number of invitations.
Yes, you can! Chalmers has a network of certified Ambassadors who have completed a rigorous training program that prepares them to present Chalmers’ principles, resources, and tools for developing a biblical framework for poverty alleviation.
In addition, our Ambassadors also have extensive experience in various ministry sectors. If your church or ministry is looking for support in a particular sector, we will work to match you with an Ambassador familiar with your ministry sector.
We do not offer on-site training at either our offices or at Covenant College.

Chalmers focuses our international work on training church and ministry leaders in specific areas of West Africa and through partnerships with other organizations. We do no presently offer online training for individuals in the Majority World. To inquire about organizations in your country or region that are using Chalmers’ materials, please contact us.
We don’t sell our own books, but you can purchase them directly from our publishers (Moody, Zondervan, and Baker) or through your favorite bookseller.
We don't make formal recommendations of ministries or organizations that follow the principles described in When Helping Hurts. We encourage you to prayerfully consider the potential organization in light of the following questions:
- Does the organization recognize the relational complexity of poverty? Or does it see poverty alleviation as primarily about giving material things to the materially poor?
- Does the organization work through or in conjunction with local churches?
- Does the organization seem to understand the distinction between relief, rehabilitation, and development?
- Does the organization seem to apply the principles of participatory, asset-based development?
At present, we do not have any regular internships. You can check our Careers page for current job openings.
Because we are an economic development organization, we are often mistaken for a foundation or grant-making organization.
The Chalmers Center is not a funding organization and does not provide financial support to other organizations or recommend their work to potential supporters.
