Together we can meet the needs of more children around the world!
As you know, here at Bayside Community Church we exist to help others reach their God-given potential.
A few years ago, a missionary friend of mine told me about a ministry to children in impoverished countries. He saw firsthand how OneChild’s program helped develop young God-fearing leaders intent on changing their communities and world.
Like us, OneChild believes that God has a purpose for everyone, and they approach their ministry to children around the world in the same way. They look for like-hearted people who can help release a child from extreme poverty through sponsorship.
I’m excited that Bayside Community Church is able to partner with OneChild because sponsorship makes a tremendous difference in the life of a child. It is a ministry of presence and partnership – because of your help, this child can receive educational support, nutritious snacks, and a safe place to learn and grow. They also learn about Jesus at the OneChild project and have a tangible reminder of God’s love through your sponsorship.
I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today!

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)
