Orphan Sunday 2017

Activate Child Church Connect Equip Family God Movement

From its humble beginnings in a small church in Zambia in 2002, God is using Orphan Sunday to change hearts around the world.  Believers are embracing Orphan Sunday as a way to engage the church in caring for the orphan, and from this expression of prayer, nations are being changed and movements are being born. 

Here are some highlights of the 2016 Orphan Sunday:
