There are over 700 million fatherless children across the globe. Since we believe the Scriptures uphold the inherent worth and dignity of each human life (Galatians 3:26-28), and because God has a special place in His heart for the fatherless (Psalm 68:5-6a), we are compelled to fight for the fatherless in tangible expressions of Christian love (James 1:27).
We invite all people everywhere to join in this fight, but we especially invite men to embrace this call. For far too long, men have abdicated their responsibilities in the home. We have lived selfishly, passively, and apathetically. As such, we are asking men to renounce the past, repent of self interest, and receive the blessing of moving forward in obedience to God’s commands. We are asking men to be fathers first to their own children, and then to the fatherless.
