Help us care for more boys and girls!


It is because of questions like this one -- a question asked to Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) caregivers by a hungry, little girl -- that makes your support of the Food Roundup so important. Before arriving at BCH’s statewide homes, many North Carolina children went without food, sometimes for days. Through the Food Roundup, your church provides them with approximately 700,000 meals and snacks -- enough for an entire year! Help us care for more boys & girls! Like last year, BCH will open read more

Couple Marries Passions for Motorcycles and Ministry


Jerry and Jeune Coffey’s love for motorcycles is only eclipsed by their love for ministry. As members of the Carolina Faith Riders, the husband and wife from Forest City have married their passions so they can share the Gospel wherever their bikes carry them.“It’s taken us places where we never thought we would be able to share God. We’ve spoken to the Hells Angels and the Outlaws,” Jeune says referring to the two infamous biker clubs. Their ministry has brought the Coffeys in contact with some read more

I never grew tired of my mom reading the story of the big bear and the tiny mouse.My family was military and for the first seven years of my life, we lived in three countries and three states. I was constantly being introduced to new friends as we settled into new neighborhoods. Some children I played with were next door neighbors in three story base-housing apartments.

Stevie and Sam's lives changed for eternity!


You change the lives of children in so many ways! Food, clothes, a safe place to live: these are a few of the things your generosity provides boys and girls at Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH).

Your investment in the lives of BCH’s boys and girls does just that, but it also does far more. Your gifts change read more

Children inspire us as they give generously


Teaching children gratitude and generosity is so important to their journey into adulthood. As a child, I was blessed to have parents who lived as people with grateful and generous hearts. Even when they had little, they shared.It was not unusual to have extra faces sitting at the dinner table. As children, visiting the nursing home was a regular thing to do for my brother and me. My dad would cut wood and take truck bed loads to those in need. He would plant a huge garden and invite the read more
