Christian child sponsorship program tackles a good problem.

By February 1, 2006

International (MNN)–Compassion International has an unusual problem to face. Rapid growth has caused the ministry to outgrow the headquarters they moved into just five years ago.

Since 2001, the group has nearly doubled in size, requiring staff to support a child sponsorship program that brings the love of Christ to over 640,000 children worldwide.

Compassion currently employs 480 people; the tower, when full, could bring the ministry’s head count to nearly 1,000.

But it won’t stop there. There are more long-term growth plans. Compassion’s headquarters sits on a 47-acre campus in Colorado Springs, Colorado. That means the agency built-in the ability to expand further, and their forecast calls for growth that would see a staff of nearly three thousand.

Part of the growth comes as a direct response to the Great Commission. Compassion teams work to help the children become fulfilled Christian adults.
