Changing moral standards, violence, armed conflicts, and persecution are among some of the issues affecting children around the world. But there is good news! We know real and lasting change can happen when children are developed to become the adults God intended them to be — beacons of love, eager to share the life-changing hope of Gospel with everyone around them.

Children need the Good News! And they need it today!

STORIES OF HOPE

Bible League Canada’s ministry work often begins with Children’s Ministry. In 2017, 1.8 million children in over 40 countries participated in our children’s ministries. Here are just a few stories of the change that love can bring.

Rocio's story, Ecuador, Latin America
Transformed by healing

Poverty, a lack of education, cultural marginalization, and the recent abundance of natural disasters has left many children without hope for tomorrow.

Will you help children grow to become the adults God intended them to be?

Research tells us that people are most receptive to the message of the Bible between the ages of 4 and 14. Bible League Canada's Children's Ministry focuses on children 4-14 and are led by local champions. While the issues faced in each region may be different, all programs give children a safe environment to learn about Christ. Your generosity can go a long way. As little as $100 can give support 5 children!

The Living Word Transforming Lives

Bible League Canada brings the Living Word of God into the hands of people around the world. We don't just send North Americans on the ground to preach God's Word; we mentor local believers to install this powerful message within their communities.
