We've all heard the statistics: over a billion people live on less than $1.25 a day. But what would it be like to actually step inside the life of a child who lives in extreme poverty? Then, how amazing would it be to watch that child break the chains of poverty before your very eyes?
THE COMPASSION EXPERIENCE is an immersive, audio, visual and tactile journey that pulls back the curtain on global poverty and reveals the power of hope. You will step inside the stories of actual Compassion children, visit faithful reproductions of real places and moments in their lives, and see firsthand the eternal impact one caring sponsor can make.
Pastors everywhere want to give their congregants an expanded worldview - to have them share God's heart for the poor. The Compassion Experience brings the far reaches of the world to your doorstep with an unforgettable, community-wide event - and there is no charge for admission. Your whole church will see how God is moving powerfully in the lives of children in poverty AND their Compassion sponsors. Your church will never be the same!
