Operation Christmas Child

occ-logo-100x90Since 2008, Terri and I have experienced the great and joy and distinct privilege serving as ministry partners with Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, providing precious children with the Greatest Gift of All through the simple gift of a shoebox filled with love and soaked in prayer.

The Journey of a Shoebox

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry initiative sending millions of shoebox gifts to over 100 different countries and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with children worldwide.


This year, we are grateful to be partnering with our home church, Trinity Bible Church, in serving as an OCC Central Drop Off for the North Dallas area. We can not express in words how much having the support of our church family means to us as we seek to glorify the Lord and bring Him praise through this incredible ministry initiative striving to share the love of Jesus with millions of young boys and girls all around the world.

Since 1993, led by Franklin Graham, Operation Christmas Child has provided children in regions suffering from poverty, war, and devastation with over 100 million shoebox gifts. These love-filled boxes are packed with basic essentials, toys, and many other great gifts. They are packed by incredible individuals in 11 sending countries seeking to make an eternal difference in the life of a child. To learn more about OCC, click here.
