Michelle Vernon

BrightPoint for Children


Having spent the last decade advocating for older and special needs orphans, Michelle’s passion lies in creating awareness that inspires action. Using a decade’s worth of personal stories from her travels into orphanages in five countries, she personalizes orphan ministry for her audience. A self-proclaimed accidental advocate, a short term mission trip to China in 2006 parlayed her into orphan ministry and was the catalyst to eventually becoming the adoptive mom of four older children.
