Program Overview

Seeds of Hope is a student sponsorship ministry through Family of Christ that directly benefits students of all grade levels, including college, in El Salvador.  Living in extreme poverty, many families cannot afford to buy shoes, books, supplies, uniforms, and transportation required for school. Seeds of Hope enables students to attend school by providing these needs.  This ministry currently supports 315 K-12 students and 35 university students, giving them opportunities for a better future.

100% of your tax-deductible donation is forwarded to our Lutheran church partners who administer the Seeds of Hope ministry in El Salvador. To receive a sponsorship, students must attend school, show satisfactory progress and attend church regularly.

Thank you for your support of this life-changing ministry that brings hope to our Christian brothers and sisters in El Salvador.

Please visit the Seeds of Hope website for more information.

Mission Trip

*See pictures and read about their most recent mission trip (July 2017)- by Mark Laven

"What a privilege it was to see our students, to worship with them, play with them, and visit their schools and communities.  Our delegation of 11 travelers from Family of Christ returned from a 9-day adventure in El Salvador late Thursday night. We saw evidence of God's amazing love in the people of El Salvador and were reminded that Seeds of Hope makes a difference in the lives of 325 students who are able to attend school thanks to your generosity. We wish you could have heard the heartfelt thanks expressed by the students and their families. They are truly grateful for the opportunity to study so that they can have a better future."
