Together, we can change the world.

Since Lifesong launched in 2006 I’ve been signing off most emails and letters with "Letting my life add to HIS song with you!”

I’m certain that each of us has a part to play in the future God is bringing to pass on the earth, and I want the life I live to complement, encourage, and multiply the life-impact of others. Lifesong has built much of it’s ministry function around our confidence that God has a purpose for each of us, and established good works for each of us to walk in and fulfill (Ephesians 2:10). There are many ways people can live that out, but here’s one Ginelle and I invite you to prayerfully consider joining so many from the LIfesong community in.

We have established a deep partnership with One Child Matters, a ministry that brings hope, truth, life, love, and mercy to 40,000 children living in poverty around the world. By launching Hope Centers through OCM, in partnership with local churches around the world, we are equipping children to reach their God-given potential. Hope Centers are the conduit for transformational development of children's spirit through Biblical discipleship, their mind through educational support, and their body through healthy food provision and medical monitoring and attention. Ginelle’s and my heart has been knit together with the team at OCM to change the world for one child at a time, and individual child sponsorship is the perfect opportunity to make a lasting impact in the life of a child.

So, will you join us, and others at Lifesong, by letting your life impact children by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and ultimately, lasting hope in Jesus Christ though sponsorship? Let’s change the world together, one child at a time!

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!
