  • Patti R. - Certification Levels 1-5
    “I am amazed by the quality of curriculum development in this program. Using a variety of teaching strategies demonstrates appreciation for many learning styles. I feel as if I am entering the life of a vulnerable child, embracing them where they are, and being Jesus to them. In many ways this curriculum could replace much of what I learned in my profession as a pediatric nurse practitioner, to bring hope and healing to vulnerable children. It is beyond the academics. It is the soul of the orphaned child. I plan to spread the news of what one can gain and give through The Boaz Project OAT program."

  • Karyl B. - Certification Levels 1-5
    “I have had the privilege of being a supporter of The Boaz Project from the beginning of the ministry. The OAT curriculum has greatly added to my understanding of the orphan crisis, the special needs of the orphans who The Boaz Project serves, and the underlying principles of how The Boaz Project plans and provides their care for these orphans and their caregivers. This resource has given me more confidence in being a voice for orphans and The Boaz Project. I am even more excited to share with others the passion and work of The Boaz Project.”

  • Danae D. - Certification Levels 1-5
    “The Orphan Advocate Training is a wonderful, God-saturated tool that helps you to see God's heart for the orphan and provides you (the trainee) with information, insights, and resources to understand better the orphan crisis and how to make a difference right where God has placed you. Through the thoughtful, intentional, and wide range of activities throughout the OAT training, the amount of applicable information is inspiring and life-changing, not only in my own personal life but in the lives of those around me as I share what I have learned. When you commit to doing OAT, you join a community of others who encourage you, come alongside, and pray for you in your journey of making an impact for God's glory in the lives of orphans.”

  • Susie G. - Certification Levels 1-5
    “I recommend beginning the OAT process to anyone who might be interested. James 1 :27 has been written on my heart through this process in ways I never imagined. I now know firsthand that God's calling us to care for orphans allows the opportunity to serve the heart of God and has brought me closer to Him. I am so grateful to Him for The Boaz Project, which allows us to use the spiritual gifts God has given us to serve the kingdom.”

  • Mary R. - Certification Levels 1-5
    “The Boaz Project's Orphan Advocate Training is amazing. It provides a fun way to engage with The Boaz Project and orphan care ministry. I've learned so much about orphaned children, caregivers, and the best ways to support them with training, prayer, and finances. The amount of work is very manageable and your coach helps you tailor the activities to your interests, abilities, and available time. I strongly recommend joining OAT. I'm glad I did!”

    “I’m so grateful to have been able to use OAT for Families at home. The topics and activities kept my three kids engaged and it made my heart so happy to watch them grow in their desire to care for orphans around the world. Even now that we’ve finished the curriculum, they still view things through the lens of using their talents and skills to support Boaz and orphans. Thank you for such a well thought out, Christ-centered program for the entire family!”
