The purpose of Making Life Disciples is to transform your church’s response to abortion. Since Roe v Wade passed in 1973, there have been approximately 1 million abortions per year in the United States. In order for this number to change, the Church must step up and step in, offering love and compassion to those facing unplanned, unexpected, or unexpectedly complicated pregnancies. Unfortunately, politics and a lack of knowledge around ministering to women and men in these situations has provided churches with an “excuse” to not get involved.
But Making Life Disciples does not require your church to attend a march, tell folks how to vote, or talk to members of Congress. It simply trains your church on how to approach unplanned pregnancies with the same lens your church uses to approach hunger, grief, poverty, and addiction -- a discipleship lens. When you tell your church that you have people in your congregation who need to become disciples of Jesus Christ, no church can say “no.”
Our goal is to have Making Life Disciples ministries in 1,000 churches by the year 2020. But we can only achieve this goal with people like you, who are ready to transform your church’s response to the abortion crisis from one of silence to action. From “it’s a political issue” to “we are here to make disciples of Jesus Christ among those facing pregnancy decisions.
There are women and men sitting in your church’s pews on Sunday and then in the abortion clinic on Monday because they don’t know where to turn for help within the walls of your church. Making Life Disciples will create a ministry in your church so that when she has a positive pregnancy test on Saturday night, she will know exactly who to turn to when she goes to your church on Sunday morning. Sign up today, and we will equip you with everything you need to get started in bringing Making Life Disciples to your church.
Working together with people like you, we will establish Making Life Disciples ministries in 1,000 churches by the year 2020. When you sign up through this site, we will give you everything you need to work with your church (pastors, lay leaders, ministry leaders, etc) to establish a Making Life Disciples ministry.
Then, using the resources on this site, you will be able to connect with other local churches, Care Net pregnancy centers, and other Making Life Disciples ministries to exponentially increase the impact of your efforts.
