What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our mission is to share the love of Christ while promoting sexual integrity and bringing life-affirming services to those experiencing pregnancy, pregnancy-related issues, or hurt by abortion. Our vision is to affirm the value of life and to have a place that provides services and resources with professionalism through Christ-centered care that will support individuals and families through pregnancy and pregnancy-related issues. We will be the leading resource for abstinence education, post-abortion support, and instruction in parenting and life skills, and referrals to a network of service agencies in Christian County and surrounding areas.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We desire to reach more women considering abortion, resulting in more lives saved. (Young women, men, and teenagers need to know that there is a place they can go where love and compassion can touch them. They need to know someone cares.)

We desire to build local families by mentoring more dads than ever before, so that more children are born into two-parent homes.

We desire to effectively present our abstinence program—Choices4Life—to even more students…promoting and encouraging abstinence until marriage.

We desire to successfully present Woman 360° our Sexual Integrity Program to more clients at risk for a future crisis pregnancy, helping her know her value as assigned by God.

We desire to minister healing through our post-abortion recovery program which offers the Bible study entitled Healing Her Heart to those who have experienced a past abortion.

Remain in alignment to our mission.

Maintain relevant and up-to-date education materials for clients and students.

Utilize various advertising methods and track effectiveness of each; modify methods as needed in order to maintain the most effective methods to reach clients in need of our programs and services.

Provide ongoing education and training to staff and volunteers in order to hone and develop skills to effectively meet the needs of clients and students.

Monitor outcome measures of programs/services and adjust methods as needed to acquire the desired outcomes.

Since 1999, Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center has effectively sought ways to fulfill its mission. The mission is fulfilled through qualified and excellent staff and volunteers who have received related training, education, and experience in pregnancy center ministry. In addition, the mission is fulfilled through governance provided by its exemplary Board of Directors.
