Global Impact Initiative:

Compassion for Colombia

The entire month of November

For the month of November, we will be partnering with Compassion International to plant a church in Colombia and bring the gospel of salvation to some of the world's poorest children. 

Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty, and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults. They also speak out for the needs of children in poverty to compel Christians worldwide to respond to God's call to "look after orphans and widows" (James 1:27)

Compassion Colombia recently identified a target area in need of an accessible local Christ-centered church that preaches and lives God's Word. The mother church, Iglesia Cuadrangular Berastegui Cienaga de Oro, desires to plant a church approximately 7 miles away. The church plant is in a community in the department of Córdoba. Sixty percent of the community is made up of children. The community has a strong sense of identity and is resilient. It is a community with little  electricity and no access to drinking water. Access to health services is almost non-existent and children frequently suffer from gastrointestinal diseases and parasites. A church is needed to share the gospel of Christ with people who are in spiritual, physical and social poverty and to provide a better future for children.

See below for ways to get involved!

2) Sponsor a child

When you sponsor a Colombian child, you’ll be personally connected with a boy or girl who will know your name and treasure the thought that you care. Your support of $38 per month provides life-changing opportunities such as:

  • an opportunity to attend or stay in school
  • medical care, which often saves lives
  • nourishing food
  • mentoring and a safe environment through a local evangelical church
  • and most important, opportunities to hear the gospel.

Compassion child sponsorship works! Millions of children have “graduated” from our program and are now responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Visit us on Sunday mornings (9am & 10:45am) to see local Colombian children that you can sponsor.
