Summary

At Cross International, the gospel motivates us to connect those in deepest need with Generous Believers and local ministry partners. Our passion is to transform the needs we see into a new reality.

Cross International was built on three foundational pillars of service: orphans and vulnerable children, children with disabilities, and crisis care. Our Thriving Kids Initiative supports thoughtful, accountable projects that help children, families, and whole communities thrive. In every aspect of our work, we share the love of God and the hope of the Gospel.

Our gospel motivation compels us to act with urgency and joy to answer Christ's call to serve.

Our intentional partnerships seek to promote the long-term leadership development, financial wellbeing and sustained growth of our local ministry partners.

Our strategic focus addresses areas of deepest need, resulting in children who thrive from strong families, flourishing communities and an active faith life.

Our accountable approach drives our stewardship decisions and transparent reporting of measurable impact.
