Ministry Description
Children of Promise is the international child sponsorship program of the Church of God (Anderson, IN). It provides nutrition, education, health care, and spiritual nurture to children in need in 29 countries. All assistance is provided through the local congregations of the Church of God in each country. Individual sponsors are linked to individual children through monthly support, communication, and prayer support.

Children of Promise offers food, education, health care, and spiritual nurture to over 4,600 children in 28 countries. Sponsors generously give to support their children monthly at $32, $38, or $50. COP retains 20% to "make it all happen." This covers about 50% of the funds necessary to run the ministry. We must depend upon individuals, groups, and churches to help us provide the remaining funds to operate the ministry. Please consider supporting the "Making It All Happen" Fund.
Each child receives basic health care benefits as part of their sponsorship through Children of Promise. However, sometimes a child has a special medical need that cannot be met by the monthly sponsorship amount such as surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, or special optical issues. This fund allows us to offer this medical assistance when otherwise it would not be possible.
As an international child sponsorship program in 29 countries, Children of Promise periodically faces the issue of sponsors who cannot continue to sponsor their children in need. Rather than stop the children's benefits (food, schooling, health care, and spiritual nurture), we utilize the Unsponsored Children Fund to cover their benefits until we find new sponsors. This provides stability and continuity to the children's experience. Monthly sponsorship amounts are $32, $38, and $50.
