The purpose of Missio: Foster & Adopt (MFA) is to disciple believers to deeply understand their adoption in Christ (Gal 4:4-7), and widely obey commands to demonstrate the gospel through care for the orphan (Jas 1:27).
The Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) correctly states, "We want the decisions our people are making about foster care, adoption, and orphan care to be driven by their identity in Christ and what He has done for them through the gospel."
To help the church to deeply understand their identity as adopted sons. As the foundational identity of the church matures in gospel understanding, joyful gospel action will ensue.
To connect the church with opportunities to display the gospel through foster care and adoption. This will be done through providing accurate information, removing tangible and intangible barriers, and calling the whole church to participate in gospel demonstration to orphans, directly or indirectly.
To equip and sustain the church for the difficult ministry of foster care and adoption. As the church responds to the call to care for orphans, an increasing need to provide sound care and discipleship will emerge. This will be done through formal mentoring program, F&A Parent Connection Meetings, pertinent training sessions, and subsidized counseling services.
To noticeably impact the city through gospel demonstration to the orphan. The goal is not just to give kids homes. The goal is to provide the orphan a home that is going to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ routinely. We believe that faithful obedience to this ministry will have impact for generations (Ps 145:4-7).
