YoungLives' Purpose Statement is to reach teenage girls who are pregnant or have already entered the role of motherhood by entering their world and modeling the unconditional love of Christ. We offer support to young moms practically, emotionally and spiritually. Our greatest desire is for them to know how much God loves them and how He will walk with them and never leave.
We meet once a month for Club, twice a month for Bible study and once a month with just leaders and mentors. All of our meetings are at New Life Philadelphia.
Club: 1st Monday of every month from 7:00-9:00pm
Bible study: 2nd and 4th Monday of every month from 6:00-8:00pm
Leaders’ meeting: 3rd Monday of every month from 7:30-9:00pm
There are many ways for women and men to be involved in this vital ministry. A key part of the ministry is matching teen moms with a female mentor. We are always looking for mentors. We also need men and women to volunteer once a month for Club- helping to set up, clean up, watch kids and get to know the teen moms. Home groups could bring the meal for Club one month. Women could come to Club and teach a life skill at Club. Youth group kids could babysit during Bible study. Men could come on Club night and help with the new ministry to teen dads.
This ministry stays afloat by individual and church donations. If you would like to financially give monthly or make a one time gift, please go to http://www.younglife.org/Giving/ and search for area number PA171 for it to go into the YoungLives Philadelphia account.
Whatever your age or status, if you have a heart for teen moms, dads or their children- YoungLives can find a place for you! Contact Monica Horvath with questions.
