Champions for Children
How do I become a Champion for Children?
Many children in our world live without hope of a brighter future. When you become a Champion for Children at Bethany, you commit to remembering these children through prayer and action. The three levels of commitment include praying, giving, and becoming involved in an Orphan and Adoption Ministry in your church. Start with the ideas in our Champions for Children Guide and empower your church to act on behalf of vulnerable children.
As you explore the information listed on this page, you will find many resources and tools to use. If you have additional questions or need a resource you do not see here, contact the knowledgeable staff at Bethany. We are eager to help you! To get more information or to become an official Champion for Children, please contact your nearest Bethany Christian Services office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
