Crusaders for the Fatherless

Organization Description: 

The current focus of our ministry is the nation of Colombia. Colombia is a beautiful country, and the people are kind and friendly. But 40 years of civil war has brought poverty, violent crime, and narco-trafficking, resulting in some dire circumstances that were not of their own making.

When orphans "age out" of the institutions at age 18, they are forced to leave the orphanages and are at high risk of homelessness, drug trafficking, prostitution and suicide. Colombia is one of the top three countries for child prostitution in the Western Hemisphere.

What these beautiful children need most is love and hope, which Crusaders of the Fatherless dispenses liberally in the form of Mission Trips, Padrino (Godparent) involvement, and raising Adoption Awareness. You will find our programs provide unique and very special opportunities for you to make a real difference in the lives of these kids. Crusaders of the Fatherless is 100% volunteer, and thus your gift goes to help the ministry.

Mission Statement: 

Our mission is to reflect the heart of God and strive to transform the lives of orphans by providing relief and comfort to them through Christ-centered Mission Trips, Padrino Program, and Adoption Awareness.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God's infallible written Word. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and it is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
We believe there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.

(Genesis 1:1, Psalm 90:2, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Matthew 28:19)

We believe Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. We believe that Jesus being the true Son of God, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for all the sins of humanity, was buried, and arose from the dead to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended into Heaven to be seated at the right hand of the Father and will return to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

(John 1:1, Philippians. 2:5-11, Matthew 1:23-25, 1 Peter 2:22, Romans 14:19, 1 Timothy 2:6, 1 Corinthians 15:20, Hebrews 4:14-16; John 14:3; Acts 4:12)

We believe that salvation is God’s gift to those who repent from their sinful ways and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior.

(Ephesians. 2:8, 9, Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9, Acts 3:19, John 3:16, John 1:12, 10:28, Philippians 1:6)
