Requirements for Compassion Ambassadors

The requirements for Compassion Ambassadors are:

  • Have a Vocational Calling
  • Complete, sign and submit the application and background check forms
Requirements and Application

Before you download and submit your application we ask that you fully read through the About Compassion, and About Partnership sections of this Web site. We believe it is important for you to have this basic understanding of Compassion and the partnership process.

At Compassion we take the ambassador partnership process seriously. Because Compassion Ambassadors are official representatives of the ministry, it is important that we take the time to get to know you and your ministry. In addition, because Compassion Ambassadors collect sponsorship sign-ups, including credit card information, at their events, we complete a background check as a part of the application process.

The basic requirements to become a Compassion Ambassador are:

Sponsor a child through Compassion International

To share about Compassion’s ministry with integrity and passion it is important that you sponsor a child (either individually or as a group) with Compassion. If you are not a Compassion sponsor you can begin today.

Have a Vocational Calling

Compassion does not require you to have a minimum number of concerts or speaking events each year. However, our desire is to partner with communicators who feel vocationally called to full time ministry. We recognize that you might not be to this point yet, but it is our goal to work with those who are active and working towards making their ministry a full time vocation.

Except for select artists and speakers listed in the booking section, Compassion does not book events for partner artists and speakers.

Complete, sign and submit the application and background check forms

Before we can move forward in partnership, we need to receive each of the following forms:

  • Ambassador Application (One per band or group) – Download Ambassador Application
  • Background Check (One per band or group) – Complete online background check

Please make sure to sign both your application and background check form. By signing, you agree to work within the bounds of Compassion’s statement of faith as printed on the application form. Because artist partners directly handle donations we perform a basic background check for each potential artist partner.

Forms may be submitted by:


Compassion International, Attn: Ambassadors Program
12290 Voyager Parkway
Colorado Springs, CO 80921-3668.

You will receive an e-mail once all forms have been received.

It typically takes 5 to 10 business days to review your application once your forms are received. Once your application has been reviewed a Compassion representative will contact you to schedule a verbal interview and advise you of next steps.

If you do not meet the above requirements but feel you should still be considered as an ambassador, please include a separate letter explaining why.
