Jesus stood before his disciples, those men and women had been through every range of emotions in the days since his crucifixion, and he gave them their marching orders, saying, “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). I believe Jesus used the word “all” intentionally so that we would continue to look beyond the four walls of our own familiarity and recognize those throughout the world who are still in need of the Gospel message and the kingdom work.
OneChild is an organization that is taking Jesus’ marching orders seriously, going into nations all over the world and reaching people groups who, by virtue of geography and poverty, have been marginalized. We at Champions Community Church are excited to partner with OneChild in sponsoring children in the Dominican Republic. Lives will be changed immediately and eternally because of this partnership: immediately as a result of the kingdom work we will help to make happen, addressing the physical, mental, social-emotional and spiritual needs of each sponsored child; and eternally as a result of the opportunity we will have to share the Good News of Jesus with every family represented by the children we sponsor.
This is an opportunity to remember, serve, and support some of the “all” that Jesus had in mind when he told us to “go and make disciples.”

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)
