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.
