COLLABORATION

We have been exploring how we can be more effective by collaborating with other area pregnancy centers. We often meet with Pregnancy Resource Center of Grand Rapids and Muskegon Pregnancy Center.

The question being asked is "How can we be better together?"

What We Have Accomplished So Far
Advertising: sharing the message and sharing

the cost
Prayer: joining staff and directors in prayer
Collaborative Task Force: made up of representatives (board & staff) from each center

Items Under Consideration
Level of Partnership

CHURCHES & SCHOOLS

We deeply desire to build relationships and become a quality resource to churches and schools. We want to provide education and services to their students, parents, and congregations.

Why We Want to Raise Awareness
65% of women who have had abortions state
they are Christian.
Christian teens are as sexually active as

non-Christian teens.
1 in 3 women experience abortion by age 45.

 

Questions We Need to Be Asking 
How will you respond to the next unplanned pregnancy?
How would you respond to the woman or man who comes to you and say they have had an abortion or are
considering an abortion? 
How are you helping parents communicate Biblical sexuality with their teens and preparing teens
for healthy relationships?
We believe people can be sexually and relationally healthy. Do you know that we provide teaching and resources to equip them to live healthy lifestyles?

MEN'S PROGRAM

BestLife {hero} is in its third year with a director and trained male advocates who meet with men during the pregnancy test, and continued care throughout pregnancy
and into parenthood.


When a survey of 250 women was done, 81% of the women stated they aborted due to the influence of the man in their life. The problem is not men, but their lack of knowledge and encouragement. We are here to educate, support and encourage men to be the best man, partner,
and father they can be.

To get involved or for more information, email Ben at ben.velthouse@lpcenters.com

Goals for Best Life {hero}
Meet men at their point of need and choice
Help men understand and take on their God-given role
Help empower men to stand up for life
Equip men to protect women
Help men understand the devastation of abortion
Help men have a choice.
