What We Do
Caring for the orphaned and vulnerable child means far more than just providing a warm meal, school books, or just telling them, “Jesus loves you.” Instead, it means considering each aspect of that child’s developmental needs: educational, physical, spiritual and emotional, and then providing solutions to address those problems.
Through Christ’s Hope’s Ministry CarePoints, we provide the life-changing care, message of hope and continuous community support required to meet these needs!
What is a Ministry CarePoint?
A Ministry CarePoint is a strategically located center within a community that is extremely impoverished. Our Ministry CarePoints provide a place where children can receive the material and spiritual care they need. In doing so, this ensures that orphaned and vulnerable children can live with an extended family member rather than an orphanage.
Our comprehensive Ministry CarePoint model is concise: Ministry CarePoint Champions facilitate the launch of a new CarePoint through their financial support. A Church Partner steps forward and supports the CarePoint through prayer, advocacy, and sending mission teams to help at the CarePoint. Child Sponsors support each child who attends the CarePoint. Other donors and partners give gifts to meet various ministry needs. Our model allows everyone to play a part in caring for the orphaned.

What does a Ministry CarePoint look like?
Why Christ's Hope?
Our name says it all – Christ’s Hope. God has called us to proclaim His Gospel to some of the neediest children on the planet and their families. We are uncompromisingly biblical and unashamedly Christian. We find our joy in Jesus Christ and doing this work until He returns or calls us home.
“I am so passionate about the children I work with. I know Christ’s Hope is changing lives. I want to give everyone who supports a hug!” – Faith, CareGiver
“If you are looking for a way to get involved in a ministry that has a mission and vision to see the nations discipled with the good news of the Gospel, I cannot think of an organization I’d recommend more highly than Christ’s Hope.” – JJ, Pastor
“Our sponsored child knows Jesus. He writes to us and in our letters back to him, we encourage his faith and promise to pray for him. What a rewarding experience!” – Rick & Sharon, Child Sponsors
