The Save Our Children Fund Drive is the lifeline of the Children’s Ministries on both the district and national levels. It is one of the youngest divisional fund drives in the UPCI (began in 1973). Half of all S.O.C. funds stays within the district for the promotion and advancement of Children’s Ministries work there. The other half of the S.O.C. money goes to headquarters for the furtherance of the national Children’s Ministries work.

The following projects are supported with S.O.C. funds:

        1. North American SOC Rallies
        2. Global Children’s SOC Rallies
