With great compassion and a tremendous heart for children, churches across the United States and throughout Africa are responding to the call of James 1:27. Journeys of Faith celebrates this movement and provides a tool for learning more about strengthening care for orphans and vulnerable children.

A companion to From Faith to Action, Journeys of Faith features:

  • 12 strategies for supporting the needs of orphans & vulnerable children;
  • Inspiring examples of how churches in the United States are getting involved;
  • Stories of partnership between U.S. churches & African orphan care ministries;
  • Guiding principles for successful partnerships and short-term missions;
  • Small group study questions to foster discussion and learning; and
  • Additional resources for delving further into the topics.

Illustrated throughout with colorful and compelling photos that bring stories to life, Journeys of Faith draws on “best practice” and lessons learned to help guide action.
