Church Partnership Opportunities
Collaboration with local churches is a part of the fabric of Covenant Mercies’ ministry. We would love to connect with you about opportunities to join with us as we serve orphaned children in the developing world in partnership with indigenous churches.
Orphan Care Ministry – Is your church looking for ways to increase awareness in orphan care or global mercy ministry? We would love to support your efforts and provide resources to help you engage your congregation.
Events & Conferences – Hosting a church event or conference related to orphan care, mercy ministry, or global missions? Planning a special youth group event, or Vacation Bible School? Introducing your congregation to the worldwide Orphan Sunday or Sanctity of Life Sunday movements this year? We can provide you with informational displays, videos, family activities, DIY fundraising materials, or even presentations.
Preaching and Speaking Opportunities – Executive Director Doug Hayes is an ordained pastor who speaks at our partner churches around the globe. He frequently introduces the ministry of Covenant Mercies to new congregations, provides updates to existing church partners, and preaches sermons on Sunday mornings or at various events.

RunFAR – RunFAR (Run For African Relief) is a great way to combine fundraising for Covenant Mercies with a fun fitness activity! Participants can sign up for any race or fitness event, and use it as an opportunity to ask their friends, family, and networks to support their efforts with a gift to Covenant Mercies. Visit our RunFAR page for more info.
Short-Term Mission Trips – Covenant Mercies will occasionally organize short-term mission trips to our program areas when a need arises. Past church partner projects include medical clinics, construction, Vacation Bible Schools, and youth camps.
Sponsorship and Giving Opportunities – Is your church interested in sponsoring a child, or getting involved with one of our special projects, like Lighthouse Christian School? Read more about our Orphan Sponsorship Program and Special Initiatives.
“The Bible is clear: pure and undefiled religion–the gospel itself–is displayed in our care for orphans (James 1:27). So when I first became aware of Covenant Mercies well over a decade ago, I knew I wanted to personally support the ministry. And I knew I wanted to give my entire church an opportunity to invest in a ministry that respects the dignity of poor and suffering children created in God’s image by meeting physical and spiritual needs. Covenant Mercies’ partnership with local, indigenous churches and leaders, and their financial transparency and integrity, sealed the deal. It’s been our church’s joy to join Covenant Mercies in their mission to practice true religion.”
“Covenant Mercies represents to Risen Hope Church, and to me as one of her pastors, an example of ‘pure and undefiled religion’ ministry that is personal, faithful, responsible, and visionary. Covenant Mercies has proven over time its commitment to produce lasting fruit in children’s lives. We are privileged to know and trust its leaders, and to support this enduring work that serves the spirit, mind, and body of thousands of kids!”
