At Bridgehaven, we believe community is a critical component to positive outcomes. That’s why we offer a training for churches to equip their people with the skills and knowledge to mentor and guide women and men facing unplanned pregnancy or difficult pregnancy diagnosis. The training is called Making Life Disciples and we’d love your church to join our family in the journey of loving, caring, and providing hope for the families we serve.

This blog shares an inspiring story of the church body responding in grace and love, changing lives forever. If you want to learn more email Chelsey at or take a peak at the Making Life Disciples website brought to you by our affiliate, CareNet:

Love and grace to you all,
