Together, we can change the world.

At Anchor Bend we have always said that we are a people of faith, known for our love and a voice of hope in the community, and we want to do anything short of sin to reach people for the cause of Christ.

We’ve found a new and exciting way to demonstrate that, over the top crazy kind of love, through the work of One Child Matters, a ministry that brings hope, truth, life, love, and mercy to 40,000 children living in poverty around the world. One Child Matters equips these children to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for transformational development: spirit, mind, and body.

Like us, they believe that God has a purpose for everyone, and they approach their ministry to children around the world in the same way. They look for like-hearted people who are willing to change the world for one child through sponsorship. We’re excited that Anchor Bend is able to partner with One Child Matters because sponsorship is the perfect opportunity to make a lasting impact on the life of a child. With your help, a child can receive nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and lasting hope in Jesus Christ.

I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today. Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ and change the world together!

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!
