What is Birth of a Family?

Birth of a Family is an innovative approach that reaches the root of the issues life ministries address. The platform captures these opportunites and converts them into lasting nuclear families where fathers, mothers, and their children live together in one home.

The Birth of a Family platform provides a venue for expectant clients of life ministries to explore important life principles & make self-initiated changes in heart-level beliefs. Trained family coaches attend sessions along with clients and provide needed mentoring and role modeling. The resources needed to facilitate a Birth of a Family session come packaged in the form of course guides & complementatry tools that help facilitators guide conversation among their clients and family coaches. The resources along with a training manual and training with Family God's Way staff are offerend to pregnancy resource centers to help initiate, develop and achieve sustainable results.   

Created especially for life ministries, Birth of a Family outcomes consistently include:

  • Significant increase in male involvement
  • Fewer fatherless children
  • More children with married mothers
  • Greater engagement with the Body of Christ
