The Baptist Coalition for Children and Families (BCCF) is a network of Baptist organizations united in serving vulnerable children and families around the world. In 2017, BCCF positively impacted more than 662,830 families.
In its 2017 Annual Report, BCCF states, “The care for the defenseless has been part of Baptist life since the Nation’s conscience turned to the orphan during the early to mid 1800s . . . Today, the services offered by Baptist children and family ministries are varied. Although many still provide residential care to children, there are also emphases on family care for mothers and their children, individual and family counseling, care for the frail aging, and even outreaches to children in other countries.”*
WorldCrafts joins BCCF in its passion for ministering to vulnerable children and families.
Benefits for Baptist Children and Family Ministries
We have developed a benefit program to partner with members of BCCF in serving at-risk children and families here in the U.S. and throughout the world. The benefit program will also lend support to WorldCrafts’ artisans, their families, and their communities.
You, your small group, or your church can join us by hosting a one-month online WorldCrafts benefit for your chosen Baptist children and family ministry. It is so easy. Just choose the Baptist children and family ministry you want to support and complete an online registration form. WorldCrafts will create a special webpage and promotion code for you, along with several promotion pieces.
