Operation Christmas Child


Christmas Child brings the true meaning of Christmas to needy children around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by people like you. The Good News of Jesus Christ has already been shared with more than 124 million boys and girls in more than 150 countries through the power of these simple gifts.

Get involved today!

· Pack a Shoebox Gift: Anyone can participate! Just pack an empty shoebox with a “Wow” item—like a doll or soccer ball—and other fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items. Then take it to a drop-off location during National Collection Week, Nov. 16 – 23. Lead your congregation in filling shoeboxes. You can also register your box online to discover the country in which your gift is delivered.

· Disciple a Child: In addition to packing your box and contributing $7 for shipping cost, you may be wish to get involved beyond the box. You can disciple a child who received a shoebox and heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ by providing $6 for a boy or girl to go through The Greatest Journey – a 12-week course led by local church leaders.

· Volunteer Year-Round: The ministry team in your area offers roles for those called to serve in church, community, media, network and prayer roles to multiply the vision of the ministry in their local communities.
