We are Child Focused. We Value the One.
Of the billions of children in our world today, nearly half live in desperate poverty. Yet it is the children who hold the potential to break the cycle of deprivation for future generations.
All children are precious in God’s sight. His heart is endeared towards them and His ear inclines to their worship. Time and again, the Bible says that God is a defender and protector of the poor, the oppressed, abused, impoverished and the fatherless. The Kingdom of Heaven belong to such as these. And we place value on children because God does.
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, NIV
Our ministry is focused on the individual child and his or her development. We are unashamedly and singularly focused on developing children. Each child we serve is ministered to personally, and each church partner we work with tailors its programs to meet the specific needs of the children in its community.
We exist for the one. The one child who is left on the side of the dusty road to beg each day his parents can’t feed the family; the one child who has to walk many miles every day for water and cares for siblings because her parents have died from AIDS; the one child who dreams of being a doctor but has no access to an education.
We are advocates for children in poverty. And we commit to holistic child development — developing minds, bodies and spirits. In Jesus' name.
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.
