We believe Jesus seeks a relationship with every child. But in the impoverished communities where World Vision works, few churches have the knowledge or training to create ministry programs that engage children’s curiosity and interest. Local cultural practices may affect parents’ and caregivers’ ability to create a loving environment in which children can experience and understand God’s unconditional love.
A focus on Christian discipleship means World Vision is intentionally expanding and deepening our work with children, youth, and their support structures—church ministry leaders, parents, and caregivers—to help every last child grow in relationship with Jesus, so he or she can then help others do the same.
As families and communities start to see children as being created in the image of God, they'll learn to more effectively minister to them through children's and youth ministry training, new Sunday schools and Bible clubs, provision of Bibles, and education about caring family relationships. We hope you will join us to raise funds to help children and youth experience the transformative love of Christ.
Nurturing children’s spiritual growth is not a linear process, but rather cyclical, with children progressively deepening their understanding and faith. Our Christian formation program models guide children through the following key steps as they learn about God and incorporate their understanding into their own lives. The donations you receive through your fundraising campaign will help us reach more children through our efforts to:
