Servants is an international network of Christian communities living and working in the slums of Asia and the West, participating with the poor to bring hope and justice through Jesus Christ.
Servants has been ministering in the mega-cities of Asia for over 25 years. The movement was started by Viv Grigg, who was working as a missionary in Manila and over a period of four years became increasingly burdened by the desperate situation of the millions of poor in the city.
He was astounded to find no missionary living in the slums. And so he became the first, renting a room in the squatter settlement of Tatalon. Out of that, came a movement to reach the poorest of the poor in Asia and around the world: Servants to Asia's Urban Poor.
Servants has established teams in the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Canada, UK and two Indian cities, as well as Sending Offices in North America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Philippines and Switzerland.
