Orphan & Vulnerable Children (OVC) Care

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” – James 1:27a

At Mission Point, we believe in caring for orphans and vulnerable children through family-based care. We partner with agencies and numerous resources to care for these children through education, training and tangible support.

We are so grateful for how our people are responding to God’s invitation to care for the millions of unwanted, unclaimed and uncared for children in our world. It is humbling to be part of a church that is already so eager and committed to taking up the cause of hurting kids everywhere. For those of you who long to be a part of God’s passion for the orphan, but are not sure how, check out the opportunities listed below to get started!

Remember, everyone can do something!

Adoption Fund

Lifesong helps us steward our adoption fund wisely, and they match funds, provide fundraising resources, and support families throughout the entire adoption process.

Want to give? It’s simple! Visit Lifesong’s donation page,  and enter the following information into the form where prompted:

Please direct my donation to: Adoption
