Heart of the Bride was established in 1998 as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping provide for the needs of orphans around the world. Our primary mission is to Share From Our Abundance With Those In Greatest Need.

Through steadfast prayer and partnering with Pastors and Christian Leaders in underprivileged countries, HOB has established on-going relationships with local orphan ministries in 5 nations — Haiti, Kenya, Uganda,  Ukraine, and Zambia.

Since our public launch of the ministry in the fall of 2004, Heart of the Bride has continued to grow at a rapid but manageable pace. Multiple long term missionaries have been commissioned, many orphanage facilities have been built, our contribution base has grown from regional to national, and short term ministry opportunities have continued to multiply. Our home staff is also continuing to grow comprised of full-time faith supported workers, part time staff, and many professional volunteers.

Mission and Goals

HOB is organized for the principal purpose of providing for the  orphans, widows, and others in need around the world by constructing orphanages and other facilities, delivering food and other resources, providing life training, and fostering relationships to improve the likelihood for self-sufficient lives through Christian leadership, discipleship, and ministry.


1. To provide facilities, funding and people that will afford spiritual, developmental, educational, and vocational growth for the orphans in our care.  Our ultimate desire is that the children rescued through each home would become thriving Christian leaders within their own culture.
2. HOB endeavors to engage American Christians in direct and individual involvement in this Biblical mandate.  We work to provide a credible and meaningful way for believers to participate financially as we provide exposure to the Biblical importance and the global urgency related to this need.  HOB also provides donors with multiple opportunities annually to participate in short-term mission projects at HOB ministry sites.
