The Why of
The foundation of Orphan Outreach’s ministry is the mandate in the Old and New Testament to care for widows and orphans in their distress.
Orphan ministry is woven into the fabric of Christianity and is in the center of God’s heart–He is the father of the fatherless.
God is invested, deeply and personally, in the plight of orphaned and vulnerable children – and in all who are destitute and defenseless (Deuteronomy 10:18; Psalm 10:14; Psalm 68:5-6; Isaiah 58:5-12).
God calls His people to reflect His special love to these children in both word and deed (Isaiah 1:17; James 1:27; Matthew 25:40).
It is Orphan Outreach’s hope that every church would have an intentional ministry to fulfil the mandate of the Lord to care for orphans.
