Common Barriers & Solutions

Here are the 3 most common barriers churches face when starting an Adoption Fund and Lifesong’s solutions to overcome these hurdles.

Church staff “plate is already full” to administer fund.

Church feels uncomfortable/awkward approving/denying their own families (viewing financials, etc.).

Solution: Lifesong will provide all the screening, reviewing, approving/denying as a ‘partner’ on behalf of the church, using mutually agreed upon criteria for those decisions 

Adoption Fund is unfamiliar territory.

launch 100

Launching a fund – Lifesong helps your church allocate funding from missions budget, benevolence fund or raised funds (see Both Hands Project for Churches) to launch ministry for Adoption Fund.Example: First Baptist Church allocates $15,000 to be used as interest-free loans and/or matching grants.

Admin 100

Administratively easy – Lifesong serves your church by using our existing grant & loan management processes to administer your church adoption fund (i.e. qualifying families on mutually agreed upon criteria, administering funds, etc.). This eliminates the need for the local church to “re-create the wheel” in establishing a fund. Lifesong will help administer the adoption fund, at no cost to the church or the fund.

Engages Body of Christ – The Body of Christ as a whole is engaged in this Kingdom activity (local church, family, friends).

Win 100

“Win-Win-Win” situation – The local church is actively involved on behalf of orphans, the financial roadblock for families is removed, the orphan child is adopted into a permanent Christian family…all with minimal administrative burden for the church.

synergy 100

Synergy – We can do more together (Local Church and Lifesong) than either of us can do solely on our own.
