One Less Orphan

Who is this ministry for?

Everyone. The Bible calls everyone to care for orphans in their distress. Our goal is to create a movement within this church so that everyone can obey God's command to care for orphans. Some will care, some will give, and some will adopt.

Our Vision

The vision of this ministry at FBC Arnold is to live out James 1:27 by supporting and loving orphans worldwide. We do this by bringing awareness to the church and committing to support orphans with prayer, financial support, orphanage missions projects, and for those that the Lord wills, adoption into our homes.

What does the ministry hope to accomplish?

  • Bring awareness to the church about the worldwide orphan crisis by offering a Wednesday night Life Class covering Orphanology and Orphan Care in the church.
  • Encourage couples to pray about adopting a domestic or international orphan, or being a foster parent.
  • Provide financial support through the means of a church grant for families who are adopting an orphan.
  • Provide a pre and post-placement support and encouragement for families who are adopting an orphan.
  • Support an international orphanage with prayer, financial support, and mission trips to care for the orphans that live there.
