Why Sponsor a Child?
American Indian Christian Mission seeks to raise up a generation of Christian leaders for the Navajo and Apache reservations by “Evangelizing and Equipping Native Americans for Jesus Christ.” We
do this by investing in one child at a time. Each student receives a quality education, the loving care of Christian house parents, and Christ’s life-giving message woven throughout.
Your sponsoring a child allows AICM to extend much needed opportunities to Native families who want “better” for their children. Christ is their only hope for breaking the cycle of poverty and
defeat. Together with Christ we can make a difference.
The American Indian Christian Mission is Christ -centered .
All care and teaching is provided by Christian staff members. The classrooms use Bible-based curriculum as well as teach daily Bible classes. The homes have daily devotions and our campus holds
weekly chapel services. Spiritual Emphasis Week is held once a year. All of the above combine to provide a Christ-centered atmosphere on campus.
We are supported by the free-will offerings of individuals,
organizations and churches.
What Sponsoring A Child Can Mean to You!
As a child sponsor, you are linked to a Native child who can become the focus of your love, prayers and giving. Sponsoring a Native American child provides the opportunity to come visit him/her
if you are in the area.
You will receive a photo of the child you sponsor and his/her personal story. You will receive letters throughout the school year. Your sponsorship may
be long or short term; an individual commitment or one with friends, Sunday School class, etc.
Your sponsorship is tax deductible. Arizona residents may sponsor an AICM
student through the Arizona Tax Credit Program.
Please call for details on the Arizona Tax Credit program
or visit our webpage about this program.
THE NEED IS GREAT!
Many children arrive at the American Indian Christian Mission bringing with them the painful pasts common to Native American families. Income on the reservation falls well below the national
poverty level. Unemployment, alcoholism, inferior education opportunities, high teen suicide rates, short life expectancy and the inability to cope with life off the reservation are all problems
Native families face during their lifetime.
We believe that Christ will make a difference in their lives! Your sponsorship can help AICM present the Gospel to more Native American children. Be a
part of the healing Christ can bring to a child’s life by sponsoring a child today.
