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
On city streets and rural villages around the world, children are living in intolerable conditions and falling through the cracks of society. Some are orphans, all are poor. These children are the vulnerable, and the powerless. Their future seems hopeless, often without access to education, healthcare, and spiritual guidance.
One of our core values here at Centerpoint is that we want to show the crazy love of Jesus with the world around us. We’ve been so blessed by God, we can’t keep it to ourselves. We have a burden to share His love with the world. Where there is need, we always want to do our best to fill it.
These children have a need, and our heart is to jump in and help. That’s why we’ve decided to partner with OneChild. OneChild is a ministry that provides hope, truth, and love to impoverished children all over the world. Through sponsorships, OneChild is able to help children discover their God-given purpose by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and a community where they learn the love of Jesus.
We would like to encourage you and your family to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. By saying yes, you’re choosing to make an eternal difference in a life, forever changing the trajectory of the a child’s story forever.

Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
WHERE WE SERVE
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
