“ONE person giving ONE percent can make ONE amazing difference in the world.”

That’s the conviction behind our ONE% offering. In 2007, I ran across this statistic, “American Christians give less than half of 1% of their income to serve the poor of the world.” I sensed God saying, “Would you double it—give ONE% of your annual income to serve kids and families in need around the world?” This will be our 15th year and we are getting close to 3 MILLION DOLLARS given!

How can ONE person make a difference? ONE name at a time. Christmas is the story of how ONE man went all-in to give hope to ONE person at a time. In the last 15 years, we’ve helped families adopt children. We’ve given hope to hundreds of kids in Myanmar and Kenya. We’ve built orphanages and a missionary-training school. Locally, we’ve served families through organizations like CommonFood, Out of the Cold, the Pregnancy Resource Center, and the Orphan Care Alliance. We’ve packed 100’s of 1000’s of meals for refugees and brought Christmas gifts to county jails.

This Year’s Goal: $275,000

We can meet that goal ONE% at a time! Please consider sponsoring a child through Global Kids or giving a sacrificial gift to our ONE% offering. Read on for more info about how your gift makes a difference.

Here are some of the projects your gift supports...

Orphans in Myanmar
Between sponsorships and the 1% offering Calvary helps to feed, clothe and educate over 200 kids at four different orphanages in Myanmar.  You can’t imagine the smile that comes on the face of a kid who has hope. Not only do we serve them, but they serve us by praying for us daily! Learn more about Calvary Global kids here.


Food Packing for Refugees

The United Nations recently reported that the number of people facing severe food insecurity has doubled over the past two years — from 135 million in 2019 to 276 million today. More than 500,000 people now face famine conditions.

Through our partnership with Unto, your ONE% giving has made it possible for us to pack over 480,000 meals in the last couple of years. These rice and bean meals are distributed all over the world. With your donation, we are able to reach those and spread the love of Jesus. Learn more about Unto here.

International Calvary Theological Seminary

Through your giving, we’ve been able to provide International Calvary Theological Seminary with the funding to have our best year for the enrollment of students. This year there were 55 students, the most in 15 years. We’ve seen students head to remote villages and plant churches, while others have joined established ministries and served with the multiple orphanages we support. Though Myanmar has been in turmoil over the last few years, we continue to see the ministry of ICTS thrive.


Keystone Family Alliance
Formerly known as Centre County Orphan Care Alliance, KeyFam is a partnership of congregations working with Children Youth Services to provide every foster child in Pennsylvania a home and ultimately a forever family. Learn more here.
Christmas in Jail Program
For the last five years Calvary has been given the honor of blessing those who are serving out sentences in the Centre County Jail. These Christmas gifts provide Bibles, journals, devotional books, candy, and most importantly hope to people whom Jesus loves.
Community Outreach Fund
This fund gives us the opportunity to share with and serve a variety of local non-profits that come to us with needs. Last year we helped organizations and programs like the Pregnancy Resource Center, CityServe, the Barnabas Fund (helping individuals in financial crisis), Christmas Adopt-A-Family, and the banquet to appreciate foster families in Centre County.

CommonFood gives a healthy assortment of food to families each month consisting of a large box of pantry items, pastry, produce, meat, dairy, and many other items received throughout the month.

The recent increase in food costs that all families have experienced makes a significant hardship on many of the families we serve. Your ONE% gift helps provide healthy food to those in need. Visit their website for more info.

Out of the Cold
In their new permanent building in State College, Out of the Cold provides a warm place to sleep, supper and breakfast to our Centre County homeless friends with the help of many volunteers from congregations and other generous individuals in the area. Many of these men and women have become part of our Calvary family. Learn more here.
