Samaritan’s Purse

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 157 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 160 countries and territories. Within this scope, we are passionate about serving the heart of ARC churches through a simple, church-wide opportunity for individuals and families to take part in the Great Commission.

Andy Hein

National Church Partnerships Manager

I serve as the National Church Relations Manager for Operation Christmas Child. I am an ordained SB minister with 25 years experience in mega-churches missions and teaching/preaching. My life-long passion is to help churches educate and engage their congregation in the Great Commission to the ends of the earth. If you would like to see your people more committed to missions, OCC is a great easy-access resource to help get them started to “lift up their eyes and see the harvest.”
