What is ministry? Ministry is helping children find Christ in the ordinary “walks of life.”
The idea of family lies at the heart of Woodburn Christian Children’s Home. Within the WCCH family, a very special group of people known as houseparents impact children every day.
At the Woodburn Christian Children’s Home, we define life’s experiences through the biblical character of God, so that together we trust God to overcome challenges.
“Family is God’s chosen medium for the transmission of godly lifestyle and values.” This quote, developed by Lee Bracey, reminds us of the important role parents have in the life of a child. Responsibilities go beyond food and shelter, and into the role of teaching a child how to live through faith in God.

The Woodburn Christian Children's Home Benefit Auction was a tremendous success...
The WCCH 15th Annual Benefit Auction is more than an auction. The event goes beyond valuable auction items, beyond delicious food, and beyond family-friendly fellowship… The fundraiser auction goes beyond all of this and into the hearts of children.

The WCCH children are excited to begin the new school year. They are looking forward to making friends and extracurricular activities.
The goal of WCCH is to “settle” into the lives of children ever reminding them we are in it for the long haul. Whenever a child joins the WCCH family, we stick with them throughout life, providing encouragement and guidance through our mutual faith in Christ.
On June 1, our WCCH family celebrated the high school graduation of Crystine. On June 3, we welcomed Sarah Langley and Maria Hight as our summer interns. Both Sarah and Maria attend Lincoln Christian University.
Family lies at the heart of our ministry...

Our goal is to step deeply into the lives of children to promote a sense of worth and vitality while unlocking a child's potential for achievement and independence.
When we first met Katrina prior to placement, we asked her to describe some goals she wished to accomplish. Without hesitation Katrina said, “My goal is simple. I want to have the same bed for the rest of my high school years. I have been in several foster homes during the last two years. I just want a house I can call a home.”

Everyone has a story to tell, a story of God’s glory.
