Pause Campaign

One week. No social media.

Be the change now!

Pause Campaign is a seven-day break from social media where students dive into a devotional, designed to educate them on the needs of orphans. More than that, though, Pause Campaign mobilizes students to act and make an impact—today—in the lives of waiting children.

  • Connect with God more deeply as you unplug from distractions of the day-to-day
  • Learn how you can directly influence the lives of children waiting for loving families
  • Receive a free 7-day devotional book to guide your study

Get involved today!

Step One

Sign Up

Contact to commit to leading a group through Pause Campaign, and we'll mail you a free leader kit. You don't need any special qualifications—students can lead other students!

Step Two


Gather a group of students committed to participating in the 7-day pause from social media: friends, youth group members, or peers. Tell us how many people are in your group, and we’ll send you a leader guide and all the materials you’ll need prior to launching.

Step Three

Get Started!

Dive into the week of devotional study alongside your group. Throughout the week, regroup and reflect on how you can make a difference in the lives of waiting children. We also provide practical next steps to take after you’ve completed Pause Campaign!
