Adoption, Foster and Orphan Care Ministry



Our Name

The name of our ministry comes from the story of Moses and his birthmother, Jochebed. Not only was the story of Moses the first recorded adoption, but it is also the first transracial adoption (i.e. adoption across racial lines).

Our Approach

Jochebed’s Hope presents a comprehensive, biblically-rooted view of adoption, orphan care and foster care—founded upon the principle that God created and ordained adoption for the accomplishment of His purpose.


Embrace Adoption

Encourage the Church to embrace adoption, orphan and foster care, and offer ministry and support to birth parents, children, adoptive parents, and foster care families.

Biblical Foundation

Promote the biblical foundation for adoption and how the adoption analogy relates to our place in the family of God (see: Ephesians 1:4-6; Galatians 4:4-5; Romans 8:14-17; Romans 8:23; Romans 9:4).

Orphan & Foster Care

Call upon individuals to share in the God-given responsibility of orphan and foster care, and to provide direct support to orphanages, missionaries and mission teams who work to care for children in need (see: James 1:27; John 14:18; Psalms 68:5-6).
