Missions is a connection. Missions can connect you to God’s call on your life to go and serve. Missions connects God to those you serve as you bring the message of His love to those who may never have heard it. And missions connects you directly to the orphans and at-risk children you are serving, letting them know that someone loves them, cares for them and cares enough about their needs to travel across the globe for them. More Christians than ever are connecting to God’s call to serve children through direct missions involvement with Buckner. You can be a short-term missionary through Buckner International.

Shoes for Orphan Souls needs volunteers throughout the year at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid in Dallas to sort and process shoes for delivery to orphans throughout the world. We also need volunteers throughout the country to host or coordinate shoe drives in their local area.

At Buckner, we believe that in order to meet someone’s emotional and spiritual needs, you must meet their physical needs first. Buckner seeks to provide humanitarian aid to improve the lives of orphans and their surroundings and to open doors to present the Gospel message in both the United States and abroad.
We collect humanitarian aid throughout the year for distribution on mission trips to international orphanages and for use in the United States to provide for families in our Family Place and Family Pathways programs, foster care programs and community ministries.
