At ABCS we refer to those we have relationship with who are engaged with the ministry as a “supporters.” This is a broad term that includes all friends of the ministry who volunteer, give, lead, pray and partner with us in any way. Our approach is relational and transformational—not transactional—meaning we aim to help others use their gifts to accomplish God’s work through ABCS. Together we grow as we make a Kingdom impact in Arizona.
Your support is what allows ABCS to continue our mission to provide hope and care to hurting children and families through Christ-centered ministries. One of the many ways to support the ministry is as a monthly Hope & Care Partner. While this program has existed for a while, we knew that we could do a better job of sharing this opportunity. Our team began working on a monthly donor pilot program to help prepare us to launch a ministry-wide campaign in 2023. We were overwhelmed with gratitude to know that there were already 227 people giving monthly who built the foundation for this program. These donors’ lifetime giving to ABCS is over $8 million! Wow!
The pilot program focused on three ministries of ABCS: New Life Transitional Program, New Life Pregnancy Center (one center) and Pursue Life Adult Ministry. Working on a smaller scale helped us learn some valuable lessons and clarify our messaging. We are thankful for the supporters who jumped on board with the pilot program to help make us better. Many served on committees or small work groups and others signed up as monthly partners! We truly are better together. We look forward to seeing all that God will do through the 2023 campaign.
