Millions of people take time every fall to carefully shop for and pack shoeboxes. These simple gifts bring great joy as children and their families learn about the true meaning of Christmas—the Good News of Jesus Christ.

However, Operation Christmas Child is not just reserved for Christmas. We invest time year-round to see that good news and great joy are delivered to children in need around the world.

Operation Christmas Child brings joy to recipients.

Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes travel to the ends of the earth to bring children great joy and the Good News of Jesus Christ. After they receive their box, the children are then invited to participate in The Greatest Journey discipleship course where they learn how to follow Christ and share Him with others.
