PASSIONATELY SERVING CHILDREN & BUILDING LOVING FAMILIES
God commanded his people to defend and bring justice to the cause of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17). My wife answered God's call to adopt in 1998. We shared it with our church and started a movement. Now, my passion is to lend my expertise to every church so that we all can do our part to build strong families and eradicate the need for a foster care system in our country as we answer God's call to pure religion by caring for orphaned children (James 1:27).
"NOT EVERYONE CAN ADOPT, BUT EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING."
THE MINISTRY OF ADOPTION
Bishop W. C. Martin
Let me help your church answer the call of God to care for orphans while building strong families.
