We are a church that is passionate about making a difference in our world. Our passion to make a difference begins here in our city and extends to several regions throughout the world. That’s why my family, our leadership team, and I are extremely excited about a new partnership that God has opened for us with OneChild.
OneChild is a ministry that works to bring hope, truth, life, love and mercy to over 40,000 children living in poverty all over the world. OneChild works with indigenous churches to help equip these children to meet their God-given potential by providing opportunities for transformational development: spiritually, physically, mentally and relationally.
OneChild shares our heart to facilitate relationships that strategically meet the needs of “the least of these”. We know this is something God has called each of us to do! The next phase of our partnership with OneChild is to now sponsor a child. By sponsoring a child you will be making a lasting impact on a child and their family by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and most importantly, an opportunity for these children to learn about God’s love for them.
I’m asking each of you to prayerfully consider joining my family and me in sponsoring a child through OneChild. As we have experienced, together we can accomplish so much more than any of us could ever accomplish alone.
Let’s continue to change the world together, one child at a time!

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)
