What We Do

Justice For Orphans exists to rally the Church for the cause of the fatherless.  We INSPIRE, EDUCATE and EQUIP the Body of Christ toward adoption, foster care, global orphan care, and church orphan ministry.

INSPIRE:  We inspire Christians through our radio ministry and Pod Cast, our blog, our social media presence, speaking engagements and Orphan Sunday. 

EDUCATE:  We educate the Church through our radio ministry, our blog, our social media presence, speaking engagements, Orphan Sunday, and conferences & events.

EQUIP:  We equip the body of Christ to walk out James 1:27 through our resources and books.  We also train foster and adoptive families through the Empowered To Connect parent training classes that we offer throughout the year.
