Every Child Initiative
Throughout God’s Word, we see that God is vested, deeply and personally, in the plight of the orphan and in all who are destitute and defenseless (Dt 10:18; Ps 10:14; Ps 68:5-6, Is 58:5-12). He calls His people to join Him in this, sharing His passion for orphans and bringing to each child the love of Jesus Christ in both word and deed (Is 1:17; Jm 1:27; Mt 25:40). To act upon God’s call to care for orphans is not merely a matter of duty or reaction to needs. It is first and foremost a response to the Gospel: the loving Father who sought us, adopted us, and invites us to live as His sons and daughters (1 Jn 4:19; Eph1:15; Gal 4:6).
The “Every Child Initiative” is an effort to join God in reaching out to, caring for, and representing gospel transformation to vulnerable children in our community and around our world. Our hope is that everyone who calls Missio Church “home” will partner with us in this gospel motivated initiative.
