The Pause Campaign

A week of intentional living for the sake of others.

We're called to live for something bigger than ourselves. But with all the technology at our disposal, it's easy to get wrapped up in our own lives. Maybe we need to Pause.

In the time it takes to read this sentence, 2,200 photos were posted on Instagram.

More than 4,500 Facebook statuses were updated, and over 6,000 tweets were sent.

Technology dominates our daily lives. And while it’s not inherently bad, it can be distracting. It can take our focus away from things that really matter and cause us to live for ourselves.

Join the Pause Campaign

The Pause Campaign is a week of intentional living for the sake of others. Students spend a week away from social media, and dive into devotional material about orphan care.* As they take a break from the constant distractions of social media, they learn how they can truly make a difference in the lives of waiting children.

And we can’t do it without you.

We’re looking for student groups—from church, school, clubs, college—to partner with us by bringing the Pause Campaign to your community.

“For me, as a Youth Director, I saw this campaign awaken a new wave of orphan care leaders in our community. It truly helped our students realize they are empowered by Christ to make a difference. When we eliminate the distractions in our lives and live intentionally for the sake of others, our students can do mighty things for the Kingdom of God!”

— Aaron Littmann, Pause Group Leader

We believe students can change lives, and we want you to join us.

Will you Pause and live intentionally for the sake of others?
