COFI is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all recipients of this aid, while equipping them to lead lives after the will and ministry of the Father.
International Fellowship of Christians and Jews
Numbers 24:9 – The nation is like a mighty lion; When it is sleeping, no one dares wake it. Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed, and whoever curses Israel will be cursed.
Across radio, television, social media, websites, publications, books and church outreach, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) has been committed to advocating on behalf of Israel since 2002. However, The Fellowship officially began in 1983 from a simple desire to see Jews and Christians understand one another and support the same efforts in the world and in Israel. The Fellowship calls both Jews and Christians to act and take part in uniting the support going to and coming from Jewish and Christian communities throughout the world. The Fellowship, founded by the late Yechiel Eckstein and presided by daughter Yael Eckstein, offers humanitarian aid to the less fortunate in Israel.
Annually, The Fellowship raises more than $140 million and reaches millions of people across several countries with humanitarian aid. This aid is used to assist holocaust survivors, orphans, children and families, poor elderly, persecuted and oppressed, soldiers and their families and victims of terror and war. The Fellowship is in coordination and partnership with 6,600 churches in America, representing more than 500,000 people.

Psalm 82:3 – Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
One of the largest child-advocacy ministries in the world is Compassion International. Compassion International has grown immeasurably since founder, American Evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson, originally started his ministry helping orphans in South Korea in 1952. Compassion connects willing hearts to children in every corner of the Earth. The children receiving support are often suffering from moderate to extreme conditions of poverty.
As a ministry accountable unto God, as well as being a founding member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, Compassion International operates in and out of the hope of delivering children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. This is made possible through the provision of medical assistance, food and nutritional supplements, financial support and training, access to clean water, educational assistance, and so much more. Compassion International believes “the most effective way to release children from poverty is through a one-to-one relationship between a sponsor and a child”. The mission at its core exists to impart a Christ-centered reality to these children as they commit all efforts to God, in Jesus’ name!
