Meet Our Director & Co-Founder
Lisa Best co-founded Caroline’s Promise in 2003 while waiting for her daughter, Caroline, to join her family through adoption. Through years of involvement in short term missions, Lisa developed a heart for the people of Latin America. It was during her first trip to Guatemala that her love of missions and God’s call to adopt came together.
Caroline’s Promise originally focused on educating North Americans on the need for adoption and provided grants to adoptive couples from North and South Carolina until 2013. During this time, the ministry was able to continue investing in local leaders in Guatemala through short term trips and eventually began a child sponsorship program.
Caroline’s Promise focuses on growing relationships that nourish individuals and communities to be whole and thrive in Jesus Christ. Our heart is to invest in local leaders in Guatemala and the United States and create communities that thrive.
Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in private practice in North Carolina where she lives with her three young adult children who are all involved in the ministry.
