Meet the Children of the World

This year’s Children of the World choir is composed of boys and girls from Nepal, Uganda, and the Philippines. They can’t wait to meet you and to share with your how child sponsorship has transformed their lives. Read on to learn a little more about each of the children. Or click here to book the choir for your church or school.

Meet the choir leaders

Team leaders Alyssa and Zach Schoonover married in 2015 and have had a desire to serve children and the Lord ever since. When the opportunity to lead the Children of the World choir opened, they believed it was God’s perfect timing and plan for their lives. They are eager to share the passion that Jesus had for kids and to advocate for boys and girls living in poverty.

Zach

Zach grew up in southern New Jersey before moving to Virginia to attend Liberty University. He received his bachelor’s degree in international business and is currently finishing up a master’s degree in global health. His hobbies include being outdoors and LEGO building, two interests he is excited to share with the choir members while on tour.

 Alyssa

Alyssa was born near Toronto, Canada, but has always loved to travel. She attended filmmaking school in Hawaii and spent five months doing missions work in New Zealand. She started working in World Help’s travel department in 2017. Before that, however, Alyssa served as a chaperone with another touring children’s choir. She is looking forward to hitting the road again, this time with Zach.
