About Operation Christmas Child

What is the mission of Operation Christmas Child?


The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.


What happens after my shoe-box gift is delivered?


OCC's local ministry partners distribute your shoe-boxes to children in their communities. In many places, a discipleship program called The Greatest Journey is offered to children after they receive their shoe-box gifts. Through the program, our local ministry partners are able to establish long-term, caring relationships with children and families by sharing the love of Jesus Christ.
