Get Started

Take these four simple steps and start your church walking with the poor through international ministry with Food for the Hungry (FH).

Step One

Select a Country

Please look over the 16 countries where FH works to find one or more places in the world to begin your church's international ministry. Listed with each country are communities available to partner with your church. Select a community to learn more about its culture, challenges and hopes. You can also choose to partner with multiple countries, or even sponsor children from around the world. Explore international communities.

Step Two

Begin a Conversation with a Church Representative,
Build Your Custom Partnership

Meet one of our church representatives to help you build a custom partnership that may include child sponsorship, short-term teams, educational opportunities and special projects. Your representative can also send you materials to share FH with your board and pastoral staff. Contact a church representative by filling out our interest form.

Step Three

Share Child Sponsorship with Your Congregation

When you're ready to introduce FH child sponsorship to your church, schedule a Sunday to promote it. We will send you the child sponsorship packets and everything you need to move your church into action. Fill out a child sponsorship event form to start the introduction to your international ministry.

Step Four

Develop a Relationship with Your Partner Community

Through child sponsorship, your congregation will begin relationships with sponsored children to inspire hope in them. Through mission trips, your congregation members can meet their sponsored children, get to know the local church, and participate in projects that assist in ending poverty in the community.
