Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."- Matthew 19:14
Embracing children is at the heart of who we are and has been honed over six decades of ministry.
Our Commitment to Children
Our ministry is focused on the individual child and his or her development. By working holistically with individual children to address their spiritual, economic, social and physical needs, we present every child with an opportunity to become a responsible and fulfilled Christian adult.
Our Commitment to Child Protection
In support of Christ's mandate to care for and protect His little ones, we are committed to safeguarding children in our programs from all forms of abuse and exploitation.
