Orphan Outreach

Our Board


Cobi Porter

Chair, Board member since 2017

“My prayer for the board is that we would have wisdom as we grow. The ministry of Orphan Outreach has grown so much. I pray we would have the wisdom to know which ministries to partner with, how to develop them, and how best to support the kids. My greatest hope for our ministry partners is that we would reach the individuals we serve with the Gospel, that they would come to know Jesus and for their life to change because of it.”

Glen Brechner

Board member since 2022

“I think God has a very special place in his heart for kids, and I think Orphan Outreach both reflects and amplifies that.” One of Glen's favorite aspects of orphan care ministry has been seeing his church body get involved in child sponsorships. This tangible connection has allowed the congregation to shape their hearts for the world and for God. What began as a mission trip has become a long-term partnership between Chase Oaks and Orphan Outreach, a beautiful collaboration that continues to make a lasting difference.

Rey Diaz

Board member since 2022

“While all our programs look different, our mission in each is to mobilize others to respond to God’s passion for the orphaned. We advocate for the vulnerable, speaking up for the rights of the child so that they are protected. We advocate for best practices and empower national programs through the local church. As we go forward, God is guiding us to go deeper in every country to expand our impact. We only want to go where God wants us to go.”

Board member since 2022

"Orphan Outreach exhibits courage day in and day out, whether it be through fundraising, working with governments, or physically going into dangerous places to try to serve people where the odds are insurmountable."

"Orphan Outreach's obvious love for children and absolute insistence on the highest standard of care for the children they served had a strong impact on me and I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization."

Mike Douris

Board member since 2007

“I’ve never met a kid who said they want to grow up in an orphanage. They all want families. Every one of them dreams of being more than what people expect them to be. They have dreams of being doctors and lawyers and teachers—and that’s true for every kid around the world. It’s a blessing to be able to walk through life with them; through the tragedies and victories. It creates a bond that’s hard to describe.”

Cindy Easley

Board member since 2018

“I respect Orphan Outreach’s strategy to keep kids in country, if possible. While I’m pro-adoption, I believe raising them in smaller Christian orphanages, within their own culture, can be better in the long run. I haven't been to a partner orphanage yet that the kids weren't very well taken care of and loved.”

Bryan Larson

Board member since 2017

“I think there are something like forty commands in the Bible to care for widows and orphans. The way the North American Church is organized, it isn’t really equipped on its own to care for orphans around the world. What I feel Orphan Outreach does so well is provide an opportunity for churches and individuals to fulfill that biblical command. I think Orphan Outreach is uniquely equipped to do that. I can think of no one that's doing it better or more efficiently.”

Blair Pogue

Board member since 2007

“Orphan Outreach never set out to become a huge ministry. We don’t want it to become unwieldy to the point that we’re not serving the children the way we originally intended. You know, if we’re going to work in a country, we’re going to give 100%. We’re going to have the right staff on the ground, the right accountability, funding...everything.”

Joyce Rogge

Board member since 2012

“We have this wonderful culture of caring not only for the people that we minister to but also for the staff, the volunteers, and even the donors who are a part of the Orphan Outreach family. One thing I find so admirable and is so well-respected within the nonprofit community is that we have such a high ethical creed. It’s something that's constantly challenged in the countries we serve.”

Wilson Williams

Board member since 2010

“God is everywhere. He is not just God of Dallas, God of the church you go to, or even God of just my life. He is working everywhere.”
