Jill & Carl Toth
Carl Toth was a Business Analyst with Dun & Bradstreet and a pastor for 25 years before forming Orbie for Orphans in 2011. For many years he has led numerous mission trips and worked with orphans in Venezuela, Mexico, Ecuador and Haiti. In 2010, Carl and his family flew to China to adopt a little girl they named Collins. God used this experience to redirect him to the mission of Orbie for Orphans. He has his BSBA from Rochester Institute of Technology and his Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Jill Toth graduated from the University of Arkansas and attended Southwestern Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary. She is a pastor’s wife and mother of three, and has had a passion for teaching the Bible since she was a teenager. Jill led a sermon research team for four years, and has taught at numerous retreats and churches in the last twenty-five years. Her primary responsibility with Orbie for Orphans is overseeing the writing of the curriculum and enhancing ways in which the material is presented.
Orbie for Orphans is a Christian non-profit organization formed out of Oodles World, a family entertainment company. In 2011, Oodles World founders Hal and Stephanie Brown joined with Carl and Jill Toth to launch this ministry to orphans and foster children.
Believing that the deepest need of these children is to know God and His heart, the Toths set out to create a tool that churches, missionaries, and frontline workers could use to apply hope from God’s Word to their pain as deeply wounded, vulnerable children. Through research on the frontlines, Orbie founders found that using oral/visual methods greatly enhanced retention and life change. Orbie for Orphans has developed and field-tested a multi-sensory curriculum kit called “The One Who Stays” in eight languages and 27 countries. The result? It works and the demand is great for more!
