The Zero by 2020 Vision: Find a family for every child in OC by 2020 and equip the church to support them.
Every child needs a family. Right now there are hundreds of children in Orange County who are living outside the care of a loving permanent family to call their own. Nothing is impossible for God, and that’s why we believe the Zero by 2020 Vision will happen. With the help of our local government and a church-to-church strategy we can accomplish this God-size goal together. Come be a part of the movement and help find a family for every child in OC by 2020 and equip the church to support them. Enough is enough – vulnerable children have suffered too long without a caring adult from one of our churches to stand in the gap for them.
Jesus said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” Matthew 19:26
