10 Cities for Life in 2017
The Lord is doing incredible work through local churches speaking for life all across the nation. In 2017, we will strategically focus on reaching and equipping churches in 10 new cities to implement winsome, Christ-exalting sidewalk counseling ministries. We are excited to train and resource these S4U Network churches as they go about the work of the ministry.
Abortion statistics in each of these 10 cities are staggering. In New York City alone, a 2014 report documented 598 abortions for every 1,000 live births. That is 60% of abortions to birth ratio! As believers, we cannot sit by idly with such an assault upon the image of God in our own communities. Through the 10 City Strategy, our churches will speak for one of the most vulnerable populations among us.
There are three ways that you can partner with us in the 10 City Strategy:
Start a Chapter
If your local church is in one of these 10 cities, you could begin the process of joining the S4U Network today. We are excited to partner with like-minded churches from across the country. Our affirmations and denials page outlines some of our core values as a ministry. Since every S4U Network church is under the authority of the pastors/elders of individual local churches, we will be in communication with church leadership prior to the formation of a chapter. The elders of the church will also help identify the ministry leaders. These individuals will help organize the schedule of sidewalk counselors, as well as host local fundraising events. If you are ready to take the next step, complete the start a chapter form today! We are looking forward to connecting with you.
Support a Chapter
Our ministry is made possible by the generosity of individuals and local churches across the country. To reach and equip churches as part of our 10 City Strategy, we will continue to rely on the financial support of God’s people. With your gift, whether one-time or monthly, you can support the gospel ministry of churches in one of these 10 cities. You can easily make a tax-deductible donation here. You can specify the city on the donation page. For more detailed information about the financial component of the 10 City Strategy, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
