We joined the Christian Alliance for Orphans in an effort to provide another layer of accountability and to join hands with Kingdom-hearted partners. In 2012, we were invited to sit on the International Adoption Panel at the White House. We talked about how the church is the best solution to the orphan crisis and highlighted the need to equip every church in every community in order to care for every orphan.
After years of working with church partners and attending orphan conferences, we discovered that there was a real disconnect, or gap, between orphan advocates and leaders in many churches.
Now, we equip pastors and church leaders to lead an orphan care ministry under their own church’s vision. Our process brings passionate advocates and church leaders together under one unified vision. The church benefits, the community benefits, and most importantly, local and global orphans benefit.
We believe that one well-trained church can become a beacon of light in a community. Other churches often follow their example. This drives to our ultimate solution —church networks of care. These networks are growing all across the country and in many places around the world. More churches and organizations are now working together on behalf of the orphan than ever before. We want it to work where you live and minister too.
Your church can download our local and/or global orphan care curriculum from our site. This curriculum offers a comprehensive guide that will allow your church to establish a custom orphan care strategy.
For many, it is simply easier and more efficient to have our Executive Director, Steve Gillis, lead your team through the process. Contact us about our on-site training and request how we may be able to serve your church. You will find this process inspiring, uniting and affordable.
We believe that the Church is the best solution to the orphan crisis. Unfortunately, it’s also usually the least equipped. We intend to change that with your help.
