Our mission is to help build faith and trust in Christian organisations, be they churches, charities, schools or otherwise, to enable them to achieve more effective outcomes.

We believe that the love and teachings of Jesus are vital for our world to experience and understand, and therefore we believe that Christian organisations and churches perform a valuable role in society. Our desire is that these organisations are effective in pursing their mission, and that they govern and account for themselves in a manner that stands up to public scrutiny. Christian organisations should be the standard-setters in terms of impeccable corporate behaviour, and the CMA Standards Council exists to help the Christian sector meet that high standard.

Worldwide, 385 million children live in extreme poverty. Poverty robs children of their basic rights to learn, play and grow. In its ugliest form, poverty can lead to exploitation, child labour and even death. It's unacceptable.

That's why our Child Sponsorship Program exists. Because more powerful than poverty is the hope of Jesus, the care of a local church and the encouragement of you: a loving sponsor.
