Some immediate ways to contribute to the Campaign

Tell us about your current involvement with children and youth at risk to poverty. If your Methodist church or agency is serving children and youth at risk to poverty, tell us about these ministries so that others might benefit from your experience and wisdom.  Testimony is a Christian practice that inspires others on their journey.

Please send a brief description (two pages or less) of your church or agency’s ministries to children/youth at risk to poverty. How are church members involved?  What gives you joy about this work? And provide contact information (name, address, telephone number, email address, website) to be posted with your description on the Campaign’s website in case someone wants to learn more about the ministry.

Help this “Be Involved” page to be a growing resource for those joining the Campaign. Over the coming weeks, we hope to see a dramatic increase in the listing of ministries to children/youth in poverty.  Your contribution will help this to be a reality.  Send your descriptions to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Ask about their ministries to children/youth in poverty.   Are churches of your district and annual conference being encouraged to be in ministry to children/youth at risk to poverty?  If yes, tell us about these district and/or annual conference initiatives.  If no, begin to talk about the Campaign with members of your district and/or annual conference.

Reading the Campaign booklet is a first step for becoming familiar with this initiative. It offers information and resources to encourage your activism. It can be viewed and downloaded at The Campaign page.

We hope that you will contribute information about your work with children. Descriptions of your ministries will be helpful to others who want to deepen their involvement to care for children in poverty.

You can influence the Campaign’s effectiveness.  Be involved.  Offer your ideas.  Encourage others.

Trusting in God, we dare to envision a world in which every child experiences love, care, and hope. Together we can be the difference in the lives of children in poverty.
