VP of ADVANCEMENT - All God's Children International (AGCI)
All God’s Children International (AGCI) began with one family’s quest to adopt in 1991. What started as a mission to transform the life of one child has turned into a movement that God is leading to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of children across the globe.
From the beginning, AGCI has prioritized empowering local leaders in order to create lasting and sustainable change for children living in institutions. That spirit lives on today in our work around the world. Over the past 30 years, 4,500 children from 25 countries have been united with their forever families through adoption and more than 10 million dollars in humanitarian aid has been delivered.
AGCI is committed to breaking the orphan cycle. We aim to preserve families, elevate care in institutions, place children in families through adoption, and support children who have aged out of the welfare system.
