Together, we can change the world.

Together we can meet the needs of more children around the world!

As you know, here at Bayside Community Church we exist to help others reach their God-given potential.

A few years ago, a missionary friend of mine told me about a ministry to children in impoverished countries. He saw firsthand how One Child Matters’ program helped develop young God-fearing leaders intent on changing their communities and world.

Like us, One Child Matters believes that God has a purpose for everyone, and they approach their ministry to children around the world in the same way. They look for like-hearted people who can help release a child from extreme poverty through sponsorship.

I’m excited that Bayside Community Church is able to partner with One Child Matters because sponsorship makes a tremendous difference in the life of a child. It is a ministry of presence and partnership – because of your help, this child can receive educational support, nutritious snacks, and a safe place to learn and grow. They also learn about Jesus at the One Child Matters project and have a tangible reminder of God’s love through your sponsorship.

I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today!

One person. That’s all it takes to change the world for a child in desperate need.

Sponsorship through One Child Matters connects caring individuals with children in poverty, to provide them the resources and opportunities they need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research proves that one-to-one child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through sponsorship—power that changes both lives!


Children will have the opportunity to learn about God, His purpose for their life, and hope for the future.


Children get help with their studies and are taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, numeracy, and other life skills.


The child development center provides nutritious food and supplements. Children also have access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.


Children are encouraged to socialize with others and instructed in sports, music, and drama. These activities, with special outings, will help them make and keep friends.

Through sponsorship, YOU can make an eternal difference in the life of a child.

One Child Matters can create a crucial foundation of support, but there's another important factor in a child's development - YOU! As a sponsor, you are an incredible source of encouragement. Your letters and prayers are powerful and effective. Your faithful support opens doors of opportunity - it is one of the best investments you can make in God's kingdom!
