“For a Family Changes Everything”
WHAT MOTIVATES US (WHY WE GET IT DONE)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17
Young people have developed a backwards view of God and His Church. There is an overwhelming belief today God’s primary function is condemning man for sin. An unexpected pregnancy is sin so why bother involving God or His Church. Why try? Why try developing a relationship where I am simply going to be condemned? AFGL uses the physical experiencing of placing loving disciples into the life of a young men and women experiencing unexpected pregnancy to supernaturally influence them God is FOR THEM through the gift of his son Jesus’ salvation.
OUR APPROACH TO MISSION (HOW WE GET IT DONE)
ENGAGING THE BODY OF CHRIST
Finding millions of young people who encounter unexpected pregnancy isn’t easy. We discover where young people are, what’s important to them and what drives their emotional/economic engine. We then console people of The Church through public speaking, webinars and social media to strategically place themselves into the path where young people are engaged and one-on-one love, support, reach and impact them to choose life, parenthood and a pursuit of a Godly family.
ENCOURAGING THE BODY OF CHRIST
Not surprisingly, 72% of young people facing pregnancy seek their best friends help (before anyone else) and often receive bad advice. To counter this bad advice we encourage people we train to connect on a deep heart-level by sharing their personal life stories, intently listening, and then to begin offering wise choices that are backed up with targeted resources [brochures, DVD’s, web-tools and training] developed to encourage young to become Champions for Life.
EXHORTING THE BODY OF CHRIST
More than 90% of young adults we encounter have literally poor to non-existent relationships with their parents and peers. It becomes quite a challenge exhorting people facing unexpected pregnancy to lead a Godly life through the prism of broken relationships. We lead the Body Of Christ as redemptive disciples to rebuild fathers, mothers, families who become new church and community members. AFGL disciples steer young parents to reclaim their own stories and start anew with people they’re discipling.
EQUIPPING THE BODY OF CHRIST
The numbers of abortions, abandoned women and wounded men is staggering year after year. We counter this dilemma through the disciples we train. We lead the Body of Christ to spend between precious time with people facing tough situations. To do this, we offer an online Discipleship Academy with well outlined lessons for men and women, a website with free and purchasable resources, encouraging emails and social media interaction. And for it to be well rounded, we make the connection for churches and local organizations (pregnancy care centers, maternity homes) to connect and receive help from the people we train.
