Together, we can change the world.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." — Matthew 19:14

On city streets and rural villages around the world, children are living in intolerable conditions and falling through the cracks of society. Some are orphans, all are poor. These children are the vulnerable, and the powerless. Their future seems hopeless, often without access to education, healthcare, and spiritual guidance.

One of our core values here at Centerpoint is that we want to show the crazy love of Jesus with the world around us. We’ve been so blessed by God, we can’t keep it to ourselves. We have a burden to share His love with the world. Where there is need, we always want to do our best to fill it.

These children have a need, and our heart is to jump in and help. That’s why we’ve decided to partner with One Child Matters. One Child Matters is a ministry that provides hope, truth, and love to impoverished children all over the world. Through sponsorships, One Child Matters is able to help children discover their God-given purpose by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and a community where they learn the love of Jesus.

We would like to encourage you and your family to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. By saying yes, you’re choosing to make an eternal difference in a life, forever changing the trajectory of the a child’s story forever.

One person. That’s all it takes to change the world for a child in desperate need.

Sponsorship through One Child Matters connects caring individuals with children in poverty, to provide them the resources and opportunities they need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research proves that one-to-one child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through sponsorship—power that changes both lives!


Children will have the opportunity to learn about God, His purpose for their life, and hope for the future.


Children get help with their studies and are taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, numeracy, and other life skills.


The child development center provides nutritious food and supplements. Children also have access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.


Children are encouraged to socialize with others and instructed in sports, music, and drama. These activities, with special outings, will help them make and keep friends.

Through sponsorship, YOU can make an eternal difference in the life of a child.

One Child Matters can create a crucial foundation of support, but there's another important factor in a child's development - YOU! As a sponsor, you are an incredible source of encouragement. Your letters and prayers are powerful and effective. Your faithful support opens doors of opportunity - it is one of the best investments you can make in God's kingdom!
