More Than a Backpack started in 2008 with a goal of demonstrating God’s love to school age children and their families. Churches that participate in the More Than a Backpack ministry meet this goal by giving away a brand new backpack filled with grade appropriate school supplies and a New Testament. Last year, through the combined efforts of multiple churches, our community gave away 3,300 backpacks to families who were each presented the gospel of Jesus Christ!

We are excited about our giveaway this year, and we believe there is a way for you and your church to be a part of this life-changing ministry. You and your church can partner with us through giving financially, starting a give away in your own city, or if you live in Corpus Christi,  joining with us during our giveaway. If you would like more information about More Than A Backpack ministry, please feel free to contact us at 361-994-0266. The cost of a backpack with school supplies is only $10.00.
