  • Great. We can't wait to help. All you need to do to get started is simply contact us.
  • Our integrity is of the utmost importance to us. An essential aspect of that is the value we place on outstanding stewardship of all the resources entrusted to us. To that end, we are completely committed to ensuring at least 80 percent of donations are used for front-line ministry. In fact, this past year, we exceeded that goal and 81.8 percent of giving went to directly benefit children living in poverty. For more information, we invite you to visit our Financial Integrity page.
  • Your pastor has a very important role to play in leading and shepherding your church, and, therefore, they have a lot on their plate. It could be helpful to have someone looking for ways to help motivate the church to action. Consider how involvement with Compassion aligns with your church's vision. Then contact us, and we'll help you put together the best presentation possible.
  • We are experts at hosting and organizing trips but that is not our primary ministry and capacity may be limited. However, our trips are different from you might think of a typical short-term experience. We are primarily focused on connecting people with the work we are doing around the world, and giving sponsors the opportunity to experience that work firsthand and to even meet their sponsored child or children. We plan annual trips to almost every part of the world where we meet, and we might even be able to organize custom trip. If these sound like the kind of trips you might be interested in, please contact us for more information.
  • While we might be able to facilitate your involvement with a particular part of the world and even focus on a specific church project, we are unable to facilitate partnerships or dialogue between church leaders of the different churches. To ensure the effectiveness of the ministry we do, it is vital that we be the primary partner for each church overseas with whom we work since administering the Compassion program is the largest and most demanding ministry the church has within that community. By sponsoring children, you are not only meeting the needs of that child but affirming, strengthening and encouraging a local pastor and church in that child's community.
  • There's no cost to partnership. The level of involvement and donation is completely up to you. If you want some suggestions, though, we are happy to help.
  • In our experience, the answer is "yes." Partnering with compassion stands a great possibility of affecting the tithe at your church... positively. In our experience, generosity begets generosity. As your church and your individual members give sacrificially to support our ministry, history with many, many other supporting church partners shows they'll grow in their giving to every aspect of your own ministry as well.
  • No problem. We're here to serve you however we can. Contact us, and let us know how we can help.
