What Is A Partner Church?

Each S4U Partner Church shares hope with abortion-minded women and men. God desires to rescue people from physical and spiritual death. Our Partner Churches take a holistic approach by sharing the gospel and making disciples of the lost. Based upon your church’s location, your Partner Church role might be that of a Network Church or a Support Church.

Equipped by S4U

S4U works everyday to equip believers sharing the gospel and making disciples of their abortion-minded neighbors. We help develop these churches in theology, methodology and networking—all vital components for transforming lives, families and communities in and around these local churches.

Theology

S4U provides a gospel-centered, theological framework for churches to speak for life in their communities.

Methodology

S4U takes a peaceful and winsome approach to sidewalk counseling that seeks the flourishing of children, mothers, and families. Each Network Church goes through the 8-part training series, Voice for Life. Click here to learn more about the Voice for Life Training Series.

Networking

S4U network churches join a coalition of like-minded believers linking arms across the nation to bring hope and help to those in need.

What if your church is not located near an abortion clinic?

At Speak for the Unborn, we realize that not all churches across North America are near enough to an abortion clinic to do regular sidewalk counseling ministry. However, we do still think there is a huge advantage for such churches to be part of the Speak for the Unborn Network. Here are some ways to identify if your church’s role could be that of a Network Church or a Support Church

Network Church

Support Church

  • Located within a one-hour drive of an abortion clinic and can commit to sidewalk counseling at least once per month;
  • Seeks to be trained with a holistic approach to pro-life ministry, but specifically for sidewalk counseling ministry;
  • Joins the S4U Network, with active ministry under the leadership of the pastors/elders or a small group leader;
  • Recommended (but not required) financial commitment to S4U, as determined by the individual church;
  • Has access to the Voice for Life Training Series, conferences, print materials, S4U Connect, and online resources;
  • May receive the support and encouragement of the nearest Support Church.
  • Located one hour or further from the nearest abortion clinic and cannot commit to regular sidewalk counseling ministry;
  • Not interested in sidewalk counseling training, but want to receive all of S4U’s other education and resources for holistic, church-based, pro-life ministry;
  • Partners with the nearest Network Church for regular prayer and encouragement;
  • Yearly financial commitment to S4U (sets their own, individual goal);
  • Has access to our conferences, print materials, S4U Connect, and online resources just like a Network Church.
