How the NewThing partnership with Compassion works:
Since 2013 NewThing has partnered with compassion to plant churches in Central and South America. Compassion determines the areas of greatest need within a given country and then partners with NewThing churches to plant churches in that area. Since the Compassion program only works through the local church, this enables Compassion to enter an area in which they previously had no church to work with.
This means that at least 150 children from the area are entered into the Compassion program and receive nutrition, health care, education and spiritual guidance. Once established in a country, armed with the credibility that comes with being associated with Compassion, NewThing then works to develop relationships with Compassion and non-Compassion churches to form Catalyst Communities within that country.This leads to exponential growth in church planting and helps NewThing to alleviate poverty utilizing Compassion’s top ranked long-term alleviation of poverty strategy, child sponsorship.
To get involved, a church or network commits to a one-time investment of $77,000 to construct a church building and provide the necessary components for the Compassion start up.

In addition, churches agree to sponsor the children from that church plant (and in the local area) at a Compassion sponsorship event that takes place when it would be most effectively incorporated into the church calendar.
