We bring hope to pregnant and parenting teens and their children with encouraging and trained mentors. We affirm parents to make good choices, accomplish their goals and move toward independent living utilizing the resources of community partnerships. We learn together as we study the bible and complete evidence-based parenting programs. Overall, our focus in Parents ministry is to develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus.
Parenting a baby or young child is a challenge for anyone! Teen parents may feel alone with unique struggles, such as being rejected by peers, unsupportive family, financial burdens, or abandonment. We want to encourage young parents to unearth shame and judgement and free themselves through faith in Jesus. Having a child is something to be proud of and parenting and raising a child is a great accomplishment. Our aim is to be an advocate, a caring guide, a faith filled encourager, intentionally posturing ourselves as a supportive and empathetic mentor. Gathering a group of young parents who can relate to each other is healing.
