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.”
