Hi, I’m (name). This morning I want to introduce you to the child I sponsor in (country) through Compassion International. His name is _____ and he lives in a very poor part of (country). I’ve been sponsoring him for ____ years. I believe so much in sponsorship, and in Compassion, that I want to invite you to also sponsor a child.
I have set up a Compassion display just outside the sanctuary (give location). You’ll see photos and info about three kids who each need a sponsor right now. (Perhaps hold up one of the three child sponsorship packets.) You can choose to sponsor one of these kids today.
Talk to me if you have any questions. I’d love to talk with you. This is a really rewarding ministry that gives you the opportunity to share your love and faith in a unique and powerful way. Thanks so much!

Social media is a great way to connect with potential sponsors who you can’t meet with one-on-one.
Ask to make a short presentation or an announcement during your church services, then have your table set up in the foyer where you can share the unique child packets with people face-to-face. This lets you directly ask and answer questions and make associations and recommendations for who might enjoy sponsoring which child. See the Make a short announcement section for a script on what to say.

If anyone knows how to inspire someone to sponsor a child, it’s Compassion Advocates. These volunteers work tirelessly, speaking up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Hear ideas from several top Advocates on what works!
Take a moment to learn each child’s name, country, age and family situation. Each of these children is facing incredible challenges because of extreme poverty.
Take a few moments every day throughout the next four weeks to pray for each child as God leads you. If you have children, involve them in your prayers too.
