There are over 400,000 kids in foster care in the U.S. Of those, 100,000 are ready for adoption and 20,000 age out of the system every year.
“The good news is,” says Eric Porter, “there are 348,000 churches in the U.S. We believe it’s a problem solvable. If every church gets one family to go after one kid, we kind of joke, we’ll go find some other world crisis to conquer.”
In today’s Influence Podcast, Eric Porter talks with Influence magazine senior editor about the many ways churches can minister to orphans, foster kids, and other at-risk kids. Porter is an Assemblies of God U.S. missionary and president of The Keep, a ministry that prepares “the Church to stand ready for orphans.”
