Operation Christmas Child

About the Ministry

Since 1993 Operation Christmas Child has been a branch of Samaritans Purse.  It is now the worlds largest International childrens ministry.  A simple gift of a shoebox to a child filled with hygiene items, school supplies, and toys is delivered to children from over 100 countries along with the Gospel of Christ.  Following this simple gift the child is then given the oppportunity to attend a discipleship program called The Greatest Journey to further their knowledge of Christ.
