Let us partner with you to help further the gospel to the vulnerable.

James 1:27 is clear in its call for the believer to care for the orphaned and vulnerable child. 

We know that as Christians, we have all been adopted by our Heavenly Father. Adoption is a beautiful picture of the gospel on earth that points us back toward Christ. In Psalm 68, David tells us that God sets the lonely in families. We want the children we serve to have forever families, but more than that, we want them to know the truth of the gospel. 

Our focus remains on an eternity with Christ for the child and the parent, and we believe a gospel-centered family is an amazing window to their salvation. Our desire is to come alongside Christian missional families with resources they will need to find and nurture their children, as they become disciples who make disciples.

A few ways Lifeline serves Florida and Florida Churches
Church Initiatives

Use these church-centered initiatives to make an eternal impact in the lives of the vulnerable. Built for your church body, young and old, these initiatives will help bring the needs of the orphan to light in your church.

International Adoption Help

If you sense God’s leading to grow your family through international adoption, we encourage you to pre-apply today or schedule a call with one of our adoption specialists.

Domestic Adoption Help

We’re committed to discipling, encouraging, and supporting couples through the adoption process. We educate, equip, and pray for you at every step. If you’re interested in moving forward in domestic adoption, we invite you to complete a pre-application. This form will allow you to attend an upcoming domestic adoption webinar. In the webinar you’ll find tons of information and find answers to many of your questions on topics like: home studies, finances, fees, timelines, birth mother relationships, and more. After attending the webinar, you will have the opportunity to complete an application into the domestic adoption program.


Does your child struggle with working memory, visual or auditory processing, social skills, attention, critical thinking, or communicating ideas? Lifeline sees how many schools create a standardized approach to learning, and that might not be the best fit for your child from hard places. As you try to help your child reach their educational potential, you may be feeling frustrated, and at times, hopeless. But there is hope! We not only serve the God of hope, but our God has allowed science in a 21st Century approach to help us know that our brains can change.

Global Orphan Care

While adoption is a beautiful response to God’s command to care for the fatherless, the large majority of children considered orphans will never be adopted. Various factors like age, special needs, and life and country circumstances often cause children to remain vulnerable. These children face vulnerability to sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and slavery. Many end up unprepared for adulthood and have no knowledge of a Heavenly Father who loves them.

“As a ministry that serves foster and adoptive families, we are so grateful for Lifeline’s resources and tools. Our families have greatly benefitted from the online CEU training, and we recently completed the Fostering from a Biblical Worldview Bible study. The curriculum was easy to follow and provided great discussion topics and interaction centered on the Gospel. We are most excited about the Families Count program! The minute we saw the curriculum, we knew we had to share it with our community. Our ministry was searching for ways to serve birth families, and Families Count is exactly what we needed! It allows us to share the hope of Jesus with families in crisis through biblically-based counts, mentor support, meals, and transportation. Lifeline has genuinely equipped us to serve and support vulnerable children and families at a higher level, keeping Jesus at the center of it all.”

Engage Your Church

The Church is “Plan A” for glorifying God, making disciples, and spreading His name to the nations, and there are many ways that, as Christ’s Bride, the Church accomplishes this mission. Throughout the narrative of Scripture, God has consistently commanded His people to care for the vulnerable as a way of demonstrating His character and His gospel to the world. We believe that every Christ-follower has a role to care for orphans, widows, and the defenseless as an avenue to proclaim the gospel.
