Safe Harbor Adoption & Orphan Care Ministry's purpose is to increase awareness of the Heavenly Father's passion for looking after orphans by loving them like Jesus.

Active compassion is necessary!

Love that is demonstrated through:

  • global orphan care
  • Adoptive/Fostering families
  • encouragement of those who bring orphans into their homes
  • teams who give hands-on involvement are vital to the journey of orphan care
  • mobilizing churches, institutions, and groups that contribute prayer, visitation, and finances

We are adopted by our Heavenly Father into His family- God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do and it gave him great pleasure (Ephesians 1:5, NLT).

His active compassion drives us to make a difference in the life of a child-an ETERNAL difference!

It only takes one to reach one!

More4Orphans Summit: March 9 & 10, 2012, Columbus, Ohio

logo-more-4-orphansDear Friend,

God's call to "look after orphans and widows in their distress" is clear. But with more than 143 million orphans in our world today, it is overwhelming. What is God calling his church to do?

We're hoping you'll join us and find out at the More4Orphans Summit March 9-10.

We'll be bringing a sharper focus to the orphan crisis in our world today and explore ways we can all help the most vulnerable among us.

Come hear from Dr. Wess Stafford, an internationally recognized advocate for children in poverty, author of Too Small to Ignore and Just a Minute, and president & CEO of Compassion International; along with Project HOPEFUL Founder, Executive Director and adoptive mom of 14, Carolyn Twietmeyer; and other international, national and local leaders who reflect God's heart for the orphan.

The summit will feature three tracks:

  • Global Orphan Care,
  • Foster Care and
  • Adoption,

and will include seven main speakers, more than 20 breakout sessions, exhibitors and time for prayer and worship.

Hosted by Vineyard Columbus and open to all, More4Orphans Summit will be held Friday, March 9 (7-9 pm) and Saturday, March 10 (8:30am-2pm) at Vineyard Columbus, 6000 Cooper Road, Westerville, OH 43081.

Cost is only $15 for the entire summit or $10 per day. Boxed lunches are available for online registrants only for an additional $10 (must pre-order by March 4).

Access the full conference schedule and register online at by March 4 or at the Summit.

The outcomes for children who are orphaned by one or both parents are unconscionable – poverty, malnutrition, illness, HIV/AIDS, alcohol and drug addiction, slavery, sexual trafficking, homelessness and death.


More4Orphans is a call to the church and community to do more to care for the orphans among us. More action, more adoptions, more foster families, more care, more funding, more awareness, more sponsoring of children, all building toward more hope. God's call is clear and one we can no longer ignore. We must do more. What more can you do?

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (James 1:27)
