  • Description
  • Compassionate Care Adoption Agency and Ministry to Unwed Mothers, grew out of the work of the General Baptist Commission on Social Issues. The Commission recommended to the General Board of the General Association of General Baptists and then was presented by the Board at the 1987 General Association that the Social Issues Commission be instructed to incorporate a General Baptist adoption agency and ministry to unwed mothers as a not-for-profit corporation in the state of Indiana. The licensing procedure to be incorporated in the state of Indiana continued over the better part of two years. On September 1, 1989, Compassionate Care opened its doors at Howell General Baptist Church in Evansville, Indiana as a Licensed Child Placing Agency and began accepting applications for adoptions. This exciting new ministry served General Baptists and other Christian families in every state through the Compassionate Care office. Mary Lou Howard was selected as the first director and served until 1991. Dr. John Clanton assumed the director a short time later and faithfully directed the ministry of Compassionate Care until his tragic death in 2006. Compassionate Care has successfully developed over the years since its inception and has changed some of its policies. The emphasis by the turn of the century became more and more of an adoption agency through which adoptive parents were adopting babies internationally. Also, the offices of Compassionate Care were moved to Oakland City University Wilder Center in Oakland City, Indiana. Dr. Darrell W. Hillhouse became the third executive director of Compassionate Care from 2007-2012. David Kelle joined the Compassionate Care Staff in 2012 and is currently serving as its 4th Executive Director. Under his leadership the offices of CCAMI are now strategically located in Evansville, Indiana. In the early years of this much needed ministry, it was reported to the General Association of General Baptists that “Compassionate Care is working!” It has continued “working” unceasingly throughout the years. Happily, in fact, Compassionate Care Adoption Ministries, Inc. has facilitated 168 adoptions since its beginning in 1989.
