We’ve been doing life and ministry with ARC for almost 7 years now... they are far more than ministry partners; they are good friends. Like ARC, we believe that Jesus Christ expressed through the local, life-giving church is the hope of the world! That’s why our hundreds of child development centers, which serve 40,000 children living in extreme poverty in 15 different countries, are all connected to a local life-giving church. We love making the church the hero! Our powerful 1-to-1 child sponsorship program is at the core of our unique and fully customized partnerships with ARC churches, giving them deep global impact without needing a dedicated global missions budget. Simply put...ARC and One Child Matters are pioneering innovative outreach strategies and changing the world together!

VP of Global Engagement
Michael Calhoun is passionate—passionate about serving children who are “the least of these” and passionate about leaders who have a vision to change the world. Michael has traveled the world to see firsthand how One Child Matters gives hope, truth, life, love and mercy to 40,000 children living in extreme poverty. When he returns, he always has a story to tell and the pictures to go with it—over 6,000 on his phone alone. It is through this lens that Michael talks with pastors and leaders around the country about the ministry of One Child Matters and how churches can partner for greater engagement in a world desperately in need of God’s love and provision. As Vice President of Global Outreach, Michael works to resource churches, allowing them to fulfill the command of Jesus in Acts 1:8 to be His witnesses, “even to the ends of the world.” Michael, his wife Jennifer and daughter Caroline currently live in Colorado Springs.
