WHERE MISSION AND NEED COME TOGETHER

Your OneChild Engagement Lead will work with you to find that place where your church’s global mission and vision intersect with OneChild’s mission and vision – and can have the highest impact. OneChild is flexible within our mission of “child-first, field-based, field-initiated” approach to addressing global poverty and will work hard to find the best opportunity to partner with your church in addressing the needs of children worldwide.

Our goal for this stage will be to create clear expectations on both sides for what to expect and how we can best partner together to reach impoverished children.

WHERE MISSION AND NEED COME TOGETHER

Once we’ve established the best local church for you to connect with in a poverty-stricken country, we’ll sit down to make plans to minister to your congregation and establish:

  • A SHARED VISION
  • SHARED GOALS
  • A SENSE OF TRUE PARTNERSHIP

We’ll also discuss the best ways to get the most out of our work together, like mission trip opportunities for your congregation to meet their sponsored children in person and see how the fruits of their labor have helped facilitate transformational child development.

SHOW HOW SPONSORSHIP IMPACTS YOUR CHURCH
GLOBAL FOOTPRINT

With child sponsorship programs in 14 developing nations, we help you increase the depth and breadth of your ministry. Your congregation will witness the Holy Spirit’s power to transcend geographic and cultural barriers to use members of your church to make a generational difference across the globe.

LOCAL IMPACT

Child sponsorship provides the resources for your global programs, allowing you to increase your efforts within your local outreaches. The capacity of your ministry will exponentially grow as you pour more into your city, while we strengthen your global impact through relationships between communities, churches, and individuals.

BUILD COMMUNITY

Join a thriving global community of God’s people with the same commitment to meet the needs of children in poverty around the world. Your congregation will see the power of their relationship with one another and how their teamwork has the power to bring hope to hard places.

SHOW HOW SPONSORSHIP IMPACTS YOUR PEOPLE
PERSONAL MINISTRY

Child sponsorship empowers individuals to make a real and lasting difference in the world for God’s Kingdom. It challenges a person to transform a vulnerable child's life and have a one-on-one ministry that will reach beyond their borders.

EXPAND THE VISION

Mission trips allow your congregation to encounter firsthand the impact that their sponsorship has on the life of an impoverished child. Seeing the great need in other countries will open their eyes to the global vision of your church family, and it will deepen their commitment to discipleship in all the nations.

CREATE CULTURE

Bring a diversity of members in your church community together, united in a common cause that is close to God’s heart. Child sponsorship allows your church to build relationships cross-culturally and experience a true model of the universal Church — God’s children of all ages, ethnicities, and traditions worshipping the Lord as one family.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do you require a minimum global missions budget?

A. This is an opportunity for your church to have global impact without needing a global missions budget. OneChild wants to provide hope by opening doors for your congregation to expand their reach to all the nations. The scope of your church’s influence will multiply as we help take you to the next level by providing the resources for global influence, poverty relief and child-focused ministry.

Q: What do you find that pastors commonly look for and like about partnering with you?

A. Integrity; transparency; flexibility; personal attention; sincere and consistent follow-up for continued care; integration with church culture and vision; engagement of their people – often drawing in those who have not responded to more “traditional” forms of global missions; long-term involvement for long-term impact/sustainability; ability to travel to a location and meet sponsored children – which provides deeper engagement of individuals and church.

Seeing the tenderness and the number of people who are sponsoring has really unlocked something in our congregation. This is the beginning of something.
— PASTOR JONATHAN WITT, Plum Creek Church

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.
