Sharing Compassion

Sharing Compassion is an opportunity for sponsors to share their story of sponsoring with Compassion with others so that more children can be released from poverty in Jesus' name. It can happen anytime and anywhere. The purpose is to help bring the needs of children in poverty to the attention of caring Christians who could help them. We provide you with all the resources you need for a successful event, including an appropriate video to share and presentation ideas. Email us today for more information or visit

Step into My Shoes

Step into My Shoes is a flexible, immersive experience and devotional for families and groups. Each step helps children walk in the shoes of Ugandan family Pastor Tom, his wife Nancy and their children and then invites us to follow Jesus' footsteps—caring for children and for those in need.

In addition to the 7-step journey for families and small groups, we have developed two large group options. The Step Into My Shoes Group Experience condenses the journey into a 90-minute group experience. The Step Into My Shoes Step 01 Group Launch was created for leaders who want to launch Step Into My Shoes with children/families in a group setting and allow families complete the rest of the journey at home.

True Story: What God wants us to do about poverty

True Story is a six-week curriculum designed to help teens discover their role in God’s story of restoring the world. Students will be drawn closer to Christ as they discover the difference they can make in the world—and the difference they can help others make as well—as they explore the spiritual nature of poverty, God's heart for those in need and the unique role of the Church in God's plan to restore the world.

Eyes to See: Reflecting God's love to a world in need.

Eyes to See is a book and film series for individuals and small groups. Through daily readings, a stunning film series and engaging discussion, this perspective-shaping journey explores poverty in a biblical, engaging, and hope-filled way, leading people to faithfully respond and take part in God’s mission at home and around the world. The experience can be an individual study (using the 30 daily readings), a small group study (using the six-part film series and discussion guide), or an integrated group experience that incorporates the independent daily readings with weekly films and small group discussion.

Strategic Compassion

As Christ’s Church, we are called to help those in need—but we’ve let ourselves become divided on how. In Strategic Compassion, Compassion Canada’s President and CEO Barry Slauenwhite invites you into a gospel-centric strategy to win the fight against poverty—requiring more than our relief efforts or our evangelism individually. It will require us to be strategic in our compassion, focusing on the full depth and breadth of Jesus’ good news for the poor.
