 What is The Process Like?

Our team will take your church through a proven process that doesn’t just work for churches, but this process is what helps these orphan care ministries thrive! As a church leader, we’ve all been a part of a ministry launch that starts out full of life, but then fades into obscurity after a short time. By following this three step detailed process, an orphan care ministry will flourish and the effects will be tangible felt in your community.  

Step 1: The Workshop
Your church will be guided through a workshop in which pastors and key leaders will be in attendance in order to captivate the culture of what this orphan care ministry will be about. This first step is the most essential part of this process. Schedule a short Zoom meeting with one of our team members to learn more about the workshop.
Step 2: Structure Development
After the workshop, you will be guided through how to set up the ministry and leadership structure of your ministry. From creating a vision and a circle of support, to recruiting team leaders and structuring resources, this step is the most tangible element of the process.
Step 3: Launch Sunday
In this final step, you will be coached through how to launch a successful orphan care ministry in your church. You will learn how to structure the worship service to encourage participation and motivate volunteers and potential foster parents to make a difference in the life of children in your community.
