Our mission  

It is the mission of Sparrow Ministries to provide care and comfort to adults and children who have been infected or affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. We are both a Hospice for the terminally ill and a Children’s Home for those vulnerable children who have become homeless due to the death of one or both of their parents. Our ministry is one of health and hope.

Sparrow was founded by Rev. Corine McClintock in 1992. After a long and successful career as a nurse, Corine needed something else in her life. She asked God to show her a path. It was no coincidence that the reality of AIDS was becoming more and more evident just at the time that Corine was searching for her next challenge. She took in three men who were dying of AIDS. She provided them with care, comfort and support. Before too long, she realized what she must do and founded Sparrow Ministries. Since that time, Sparrow has grown to an organization that currently cares for over 225 children and 80 adults.

How Sparrow got its name

“Sparrow Ministries was impressed on my heart by the Lord” says Corine. The world is full of little sparrows, insignificant little birds not so unlike people in many respects.

She believed that God wanted to show us that no matter how insignificant we thought our lives were that he still watched over us. Reciting Matthew 10:29 “Not one sparrow falls to the ground but from the will of the father. So don’t be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows”
 Testimony of Rev. Corine McClintock - Founder/Director of Sparrow Ministries

The following testimony is a letter written by Rev. McClintock.  (1998)

“Looking back on my life, I am amazed that I am only able to see the tapestry now. It looks so completely logical, as if I should have been aware of it all my life. Yet, I have often, like many other fellow believers, wondered where my life is actually leading to and, in darker days, if my life makes sense at all.”

“How we doubt God’s Power and Majesty!”

Thankfully, He is an All-Motivating, All-Inspiring Person who has known all of us before we were formed in the womb. He had a plan for me and for you....
