It is exciting to see God mobilizing His Church around the globe to care for the fatherless! What started as one small spark in the heart of a Zambian pastor is spreading and igniting flames in the hearts of people and communities and it is making a difference. Since its inception in 2003, the message of Orphan Sunday has spread to churches in 94 countries as of 2018. In 2017 more than 854 churches around the world "Checked In" to indicate that they were hosting a dedicated Orphan Sunday event.
2017 saw 21 Canadian churches participate in an expression of Orphan Sunday. We are praying that in the coming years, thousands of churches will be sharing the gospel call to care for orphans and vulnerable children and challenging one another to seek the Lord's unique role for them in this biblical call.
Join with other believers around the world as we pray for children and families in need, those who care for them and the awakening of Churches. And remember to Check In to add your church to the global map to indicate that you are hosting an Orphan Sunday event in 2019. The presence of your marker pin is an encouragement to fellow believers around the world and allows them to specifically pray for you, your congregation and your event.
