Church Partnership

Short explanation of Compassion International's partnership with the local church in the areas where we work.

Church Partnership

A natural combination


Compassion's decision to partner with local churches is a strategic one:

We believe local congregations are catalysts for community change and optimize the mutual respect, resources and common purpose critical in caring for children. When this kind of relationship takes hold, it's amazing how children come alive. We've found that one thing is always present when it does: humility.


What does that look like? It's lived out in the local community by:


  • working together
  • listening to each other
  • going in the same direction
  • sharing equal amounts of responsibility

Compassion church partnerships have flourished for many years and that's why we keep doing them.
