Did you know Orange provides curriculum at no or little cost to churches in under-served communities, rural churches, inner-city churches, start-up churches, and international churches in dozens of countries? To date, Orange has sponsored more than 1,200 churches.
We’re excited about these numbers, but we don’t want to stop there.
“If we can get the right 10 percent of churches in a community working together with the same strategy, and the right 10 percent of students influencing the rest of the students, and the right 10 percent of adults in a community showing up to give every kid a consistent leader, we can make a 100 percent difference in the community.”
– Reggie Joiner, founder of Orange
So let’s do more together! For every $1,000 given, we are able to come alongside a church with both content and the support they need to implement the Orange strategy. Imagine the power of a church-to-church partnership, your church connected to another one somewhere in the world. Your gift of any amount will make an immediate difference in making family ministry a priority for those who need it most.
Thank you for being a part of sponsoring under-resourced churches across the world as they implement a strategy for families.
