Orphan care Ministry

The St. Andrews Orphan Care Committee exists to bring glory to God and further His kingdom by caring for the spiritual and physical needs of fostering and adopting families at St Andrews and our community through partnerships with like-minded local organizations. Our hope is to show the love of Christ and advance the gospel by educating, supporting and loving those in our church and community who are rising up to care for children in need.

Clement Care

In July of 2017, St. Andrews went into partnership with Clement Arts and Promise 686 to implement the Clement Care model within our church. The goal of Clement Care is for churches to work together to ensure no child is left without a loving family by caring for broken families and providing a safe haven for vulnerable children. Through Clement Care, St. Andrews has not only been able to train advocates within our church, but has also been able to establish care communities to serve our members who are pursuing foster care and adoption.
