Engage your church in mission for children in poverty.

Why Compassion?

Christ, church, children.

If those things matter to you as much as they do to us, then you’re in the right place.

Because we believe Jesus transforms lives, we want everyone to have the opportunity to encounter His love and good news message.

Church icon


Because we believe the Church is uniquely positioned and commissioned to respond to poverty, everything we do is in partnership with local churches.

Because we believe in the power of investing in the life of a child, our global programs meet the needs of kids and equip them to overcome poverty.

Are you passionate about seeing local churches thrive as they raise up leaders who will impact their communities with the transformative message of Jesus? Us too.

What happens when I contact a member of your church team?

Our Regional Relationship Managers are passionate about working with pastors and church leaders to build customized, meaningful and impactful church partnerships. They will connect with you via email, phone and/or meetings to understand your church’s mission goals and how Compassion can help you make an impact for children living in poverty.

Can we focus our Compassion partnership in a specific country, region or community?

Yes! You can choose one or more countries or local regions to focus your church’s partnership. This will enable you to focus your impact, foster a sense of connection amongst your church community and plan meaningful church trips in the future. If you already have ongoing global mission efforts in a country and community where Compassion works, your Regional Relationship Manager can work with you to build a partnership that complements your existing efforts in that region.

What ways can my church community engage with Compassion?

Compassion church partnership looks different for every church, depending on what fits their context. Churches can choose to present Compassion’s ministry during a church service, event or gathering, use one of Compassion’s resources with their small groups, youth group or other ministries, fundraise for a specific need, host sponsor letter-writing events, plan church trips to see Compassion’s work and so much more. To learn more about different church partnership options, connect with our church team!

Can I bring a Compassion artist or speaker to my church?

Yes. Connect with your local Regional Relationship Manager or visit our Compassion Ambassadors page to book a Compassion artist or speaker.
