‘For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ – Matthew 25:35-36
As you know, here at Elevate People our mission is to lead those who are lost to an encounter with Jesus. We believe that if Jesus ran in all lanes equally so do we. The local church is the hope of the world. The bible teaches us to give of ourselves and our finances equally towards His mission.
Recently, after sharing the vision of our church I was connected to a friend who told me how we could provide food, water, shelter, clothing and care to children in impoverished countries all over the world. We instantly saw how the OneChild program would be the perfect partnership for Elevate People.
Just like us, OneChild believes that we are called to BE the hands and feet of Christ. I’m excited that Elevate People is able to partner with OneChild because sponsorship is the perfect opportunity to make a lasting impact on the life of a child. With your help, a child can receive educational support, food, medical aid, and lasting hope in Jesus Christ. Their mission is to equip children in developing nations to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for spiritual, physical, social, mental, and emotional development.
I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today. Let’s change our world together, one child at a time!
Lead Pastor, Elevate People
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)
