Providing gospel-centered resources to mobilize the church for global orphan care.


Join us on October 2-3 in Franklin, Tennessee, as we explore our adoption in Christ—what it means for us and for orphans. The good news of the Gospel is that God adopts those who have “no hope” and are “without God in the world” (Eph. 2:12). By the blood of Jesus, conference-2009-posterGod graciously and amazingly brings outsiders into his household (Eph. 2:13, 19). The joy of the Gospel is that through Jesus Christ we become sons of God (Eph. 1:5).

Christianity has a unique vertical to horizontal movement. Christians love horizontally because God has first loved us vertically (1 John 4:19). We forgive even as God in Christ has first forgiven us (Eph. 4:32). We welcome others as Christ has welcomed us (Rom. 15:7). God’s vertical kindness to us inevitably moves us out in horizontal kindness to those in need.

Christianity’s unique vertical to horizontal movement has everything to do with mobilizing the church to care for orphans in their distress. Join as as we consider “Our Adoption in Christ: What It Means for Us and for Orphans.” If any group of people can be mobilized to care for orphans on a global scale, it will be Christians.  Why? Because “while we were still weak” (Rom. 5:6) and without hope, God came to us in kindness and met our greatest needs. We are moved to care for orphans because God has cared for us.
