Our Purpose

We are committed to compel Christians to a greater place of action for the 163 million orphans worldwide and to influence the world for Christ, one needy child at a time through God’s model of adoption. We are here to support, encourage, and assist financially those that have been called by God to either adopt or foster the many children that are in need.

How do we accomplish this?

1. Adoption

Adoption is our ultimate goal in caring for orphan children as it enables them to become a part of God’s perfect plan…a family. While many Christian families have the desire and resources to care for a child, initial costs keep many from following God’s call to adopt.

BBC has formed a committee of lay people to assist prospective families with the process of adoption by supporting, encouraging and providing financial assistance as needed through adoption grants.

2. Foster care

We want to raise awareness of the need and provide training and support for families interested in providing children in Chattanooga with a temporary home.

3. Orphan care

We want to expand our partnership with orphan ministries around the world. Here are some organizations to partner with on your journey:

Small World Adoption
Bethany Christian Services
Lifesong for Orphans

Our Process

Our goal is for children to be adopted into traditional Christian families. We determine the financial assistance to be given based upon the following criteria:

  • Leading of the Holy Spirit

  • Need of the child (special needs, older child, etc.)

  • Financial need of prospective adoptive parents

  • Referral and level of support from local church pastor/leadership

  • Availability of funds
