What precautions are being taken during COVID-19?

Is it suitable for young children?

Yes. The Compassion Journey was designed for families with kids of all ages to experience together. We understand small children are all impacted differently by stories they hear so parents are welcome to preview the audio content on-site before including their little ones.

Compassion International works in some of the most vulnerable places on the planet. The stories we profile in The Compassion Journey contain true realities that children face every day. We take great effort to avoid sensationalizing dark circumstances and try to tell the bigger story of these children who are on a journey from poverty to hope.

Is this a religious event?

Compassion International is an openly Christian organization, and each of the children’s true stories will include a theme of their faith, as it made a significant impact on their ability to escape poverty. We want all our guests to feel comfortable and welcome because it’s our goal to increase awareness in each community about the realities of extreme poverty and the difference we all have the opportunity to make.

Will I be pressured for money?

No. There will be an opportunity to sponsor a child at the end of your experience, but it’s not required. You will not be asked for a donation for attending.

The location listed is a church. Do I have to be a church-goer? Is the church going to ask me for anything?

No. Although this event is hosted by a local church, it is open to the public.
