Culture of Adoption Video

Tweet Share

Below is a video I did for the Christian Alliance for Orphans, on how & why to create an “adoption culture” in your church. I’ve found a lot of churches, when God pierces their hearts for orphans, want to download a ready-made program to do so.

But I think adoption and orphan care have to be more organic than that, and I think there are some realities this move forms beyond the question of orphans and families themselves. This short video explains why.

By the way, if you can, join Rick and Kay Warren, Dennis Rainey, Francis Chan, Steven Curtis Chapman, and me for the Orphan Summit VIII at Saddleback Church May 3-4 of this year.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
