How can I make a difference with Christian ministries? 

Christian ministries seek to improve people's lives. Compassion International, founded in 1952 by the Rev. Everett Swanson, is one of the leading Christian ministries devoted to releasing impoverished children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. Today, we serve more than 900,000 children in need in 24 countries.

The distinctions from other Christian ministries mentioned above allow Compassion to offer children living in poverty the opportunity to become fulfilled Christian adults. Compassion is also committed to educating Christians on poverty to save even more lives.
