The Greatest Journey is an exciting discipleship program that teaches children to become faithful followers of Christ. The program is offered to children who have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox.

Did you know that last year, over 229,000 children learned about Jesus Christ through the Bible study offered to children and their families after we distributed gift-filled shoeboxes in their communities?

This Bible study is called The Greatest Journey, and it is offered freely to children by local churches in the days following a shoebox distribution event, provided we have their parents’ or guardians’ approval, and permission from local authorities.

A donation of $6 provides one child with a copy of The Greatest Gift booklet, The Greatest Journey discipleship course, and a New Testament.

The impact from 2010 to 2018 from shoeboxes distributed worldwide:

  • Over 18.9 million children enrolled
  • More than 13.4 million children graduated
  • Over 8.9 million reported decisions for Christ

Through Operation Christmas Child and The Greatest Journey program, the Gospel is being proclaimed, tens of thousands are coming to Christ, new churches are being planted, and congregations are being encouraged and growing. Please pray for our team and our ministry partners as they continue to reach out and offer support to children, families, and communities in Jesus’ Name.

Every shoebox gift your church packs means one more child will have the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
