If you want to see what church-centered orphan care should look like, take a close and careful look at Saddleback Church’s orphan care ministry. Saddleback is leading the way in mobilizing its own people to care for orphans, both locally and globally. And what I love about Saddleback is that they are caring for orphans globally by partnering with other local churches. Not only are they not by-passing the local church as they care for orphans, but they are committed to actively partnering with other local churches. Their Rwanda Orphan Care Initiative is a perfect example of their commitment to church-centered orphan care.
