ICCM Advocates encourage others to become child sponsors
International Child Care Ministries believes in what we do. We have seen the benefits and the success stories that have come from children being sponsored. We think it’s important that churches, schools, conferences, events, etc., should know about ICCM and all it offers.
We provide ICCM Ambassadors that are based throughout the United States. ICCM Ambassadors can come speak, preach or teach at your church, group meeting, or conference event, etc.
Please fill out the form below to book a speaker for your event.
Our Speakers & Ambassadors
Rev. Linda Adams, D. Min.
ICCM Director – Indianapolis, Indiana
Rev. Linda Adams served as a Free Methodist pastor for 17 years before becoming Director of International Child Care Ministries, the child sponsorship program of the global Free Methodist Church. While pastoring in Rochester, New York, her life was impacted by 33 refugees from Central Africa who began attending her church. Through them, God opened her eyes to many issues that harm children, including war, extreme poverty and child soldiering. Now she takes joy in being on the solution side, leading a ministry that impacts 20,000 children’s lives. Through sponsorship and other programs, children are reached, fed, educated and protected from exploitation. She devotes her life to promoting justice and opportunity for children in more than 30+ countries.
Church Relations Director – Indianapolis, Indiana
Jen is a pastor’s kid who learned firsthand the global impact of the local Free Methodist church. As a licensed clinical professional counselor focusing on children, she has developed a passion for meeting the needs of children and their families around the world. Jen looks forward to building a partnership with your church to bring hope and a future to our global family.
Rev. Raymond Babcock
Special Projects Coordinator – Indianapolis, Indiana
Ray is married to Pam and they have three adult children. Ray and Pam served as Free Methodist missionaries in Mexico and in Brazil, as well as in pastoral ministry in Michigan. Currently, he is Regional Coordinator for Brazil and Administrative Assistant to the Director of ICCM. When Ray is headed to the office, he tells Pam, “I’m going to take care of the children!”
Rev. Megan Hoose
ICCM Ambassador – Rochester, New York
Rev. Megan Hoose is a lifelong Free Methodist and a second generation FM pastor. At a young age, she learned of the needs of children all over the world. But in 2010, Megan’s life changed as she heard more about the Inhospitable living conditions of children in Haiti and traveled to see the devastation of the earthquake firsthand. The faces of these children became more than a photo on the refrigerator. Megan lives near Rochester, NY, with her husband and two children, and would love to share her passion with you.
ICCM Ambassador – Los Angeles, California
Kristin Evans is our ICCM Ambassador for California. She is the daughter of former FM Area Director for Europe Jerry Coleman. Growing up overseas as a missionary and pastor’s kid, Kristin was able to work with kids from around the world. Now, while living in Los Angeles, her passion and call to help children around the world know Jesus and His love for them continues. She would love to come to your church or event and find creative ways to partner with you so that together we can bring hope, love, and support to these children in need. As Matthew 19:14 says, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
ICCM Ambassador – Benton City, Washington
Trevor Owen joined the ICCM community to fuel a passion for missions. Prior to joining ICCM, he served as a full-time pastor in the Oregon Conference of the FMC where he helped to found, and still leads, Mission Catalyst: a short-term mission organization which forms teams of people from a variety of churches to go and partner with others throughout the world. These travels took him to a variety of ICCM hostels and ministries where he saw the deep need of many as well as the invaluable ministry ICCM provides worldwide. Working with ICCM provides the amazing opportunity to blend ministry to “the least of these.”
