Operation Christmas Child

What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of the box is eternal. Be a part of a global mission to change lives all over the world in Jesus' name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.

These shoebox gifts have led to evangelism, discipleship and the multiplication of believers and churches thanks to your donations. Since 2009, more than 18.9 million children have been invited to participate in the Greatest Journey, a 12-lesson discipleship program that includes Bible stories, Scripture memorization, and steps toward following and sharing the Gospel of Jesus.

Today, 8.9 million children have reported decisions for Christ while taking the Greatest Journey. With your help, we can extend the greatest gift we’ve been given with others who need it too. We encourage you to pray about your decision to donate and join us to help reach our goal of 5,000 boxes.
