The Greatest Journey
Your shoebox is just the first step to transforming a young life for eternity
The Greatest Journey began 2,000 years ago
- Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)
- Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
We are continuing what
Every shoebox gift delivered by Operation Christmas Child is a tangible expression of God’s amazing love. But a shoebox is just the beginning. It also presents an opportunity in more than 100 countries for our church partners to invite children into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey.
The Greatest Journey is a dynamic approach to discipleship—including 12 engaging Bible lessons—that local trained teachers are using to instruct the next generation of believers on how to become devoted followers of Christ and boldly share their faith with others.
Make disciples and help change the world
Since 2009, millions of children around the world have learned what it means to faithfully follow Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey. As a result, lives are being changed for eternity and new churches are springing up in communities across the globe.
We praise the Lord for making The Greatest Journey one of the largest discipleship programs in the world today. But there are many more boys and girls we still urgently need to reach with the truth of God’s Word.
Will you help us “go and make disciples of all nations” as Christ commanded? Sign up for a monthly gift of $6, and each year you will give 12 children study materials, a New Testament, and the opportunity to learn what it means to devote their lives to sharing the Good News of eternal grace through Jesus Christ.

This region of the world can be hostile towards sharing the Gospel, which is why we must protect the identity of our church partners, along with the teachers and participants of The Greatest Journey. Their safety and security is paramount.
Though you cannot see The Greatest Journey at work in the Middle East, be rest assured that we are working hard to introduce boys and girls to God’s great love in many of the countries here. You can support our efforts in this corner of the world or wherever we go starting at just $6 each month.
Most importantly, you can pray that the Good News we teach through The Greatest Journey will significantly impact the hearts of children so they grow up as faithful followers of Christ. And pray that they will be equipped to share their love of Jesus with others.
