This CBN article, titled “'Should Every Church Do This? Yes': Ohio Church Seeks to Close Gap in Foster Care Ministries,” highlights how Rock of Grace Church has worked to emphasize adoption and foster care in their congregation. Their initiative, called “#everychild,” has made it possible for 40 children to come into care and 5 to be adopted. Jason Crisp, an advocate in the ministry, stated “by providing support and care, churches can help these children thrive and reach their full potential.”

Although every Hub article is selected to foster discussion about modern church structure, not every idea and opinion expressed in the linked articles may fully align with the views and mission of Koinesúnē Magazine. All the same, we seek to uplift and celebrate the different ministries working around the globe.
