A PASTOR'S HEART

As a pastor, you have a lot of possibilities when it comes to where to encourage your congregation to do outreach and make a practical impact in the community. The reason you are visiting our website, The Great Turnaround, is you most likely have a growing interest in learning more of how you can point your church to the cause of saving lives and actively prevent the death of the unborn within the radius of your church. You care. And you're looking for solutions. (more...)

The reason your local Pro-life Pregnancy Center exists is because they can specialize in reaching those pregnant women in ways that the local church is not equipped to do so, be it the counseling staff or the latest ultra-sound equipment with trained medical specialists. And their outreach is in the name our Lord with tangible, practical help, hope and a message of God's love.

Our focus at the Great Turnaround is to help your local Pro-life preganacy Center increase its fundraising totals in order to fulfill the calling on their ministry. When they have more financial resources to save babies it is fulfilling the desire of those who have given. When everyone does what they are able to, together we can make a big difference.

We have listed 7 practical ways, you as a Pastor can point your congregation toward a more practical way of doing more for the Pro-life Movement in your local area. We encourage you to also view the brief video testimonies found on this page to hear the what other Pastors, like yourself, had to say about their journey of helping their congregations minister to their local community.

TOP 7 PRACTICAL STEPS FOR PASTORS

Consider how many lives can be affected by your help! There are many ways that pastors can help a local pregnancy center... (click each step below to discover more!)

  • Adopt a Local Center
    Choose a Pro-life Center you can "Adopt" as a church. There might be more than one within a 30-mile radius of your church, but deciding on one will keep it simple and more personal.

  • Encourage Attendance and Pledging at Annual Fundraiser Event
    Either from the church budget and/or by encouraging those in your congregation to attend and pledge financially to that year's fundraising event/banquet. You as a Pastor attending too, will make a visible and pronounced statement of support.

    ATTEND A LOCAL EVENT
  • Encourage Volunteers
    List your "Adopted" center as one of your church's outreach programs that congregants could volunteer their time to, as a meaningful presence of your church in the community.
  • Offer Prayer Support
    Every church has a prayer time, prayer groups, prayer chain or some form of practical ongoing prayer. Listing your "Adopted" center as one group to be regularly prayed for will make a spiritual impact that God will bless. Receiving the Center's newsletter will provide you practical things to pray about as you seek ways to help them through prayer.
  • Preach An Annual Sanctity of Life Sermon
    Commit one Sunday a year to a pro-life Biblical message. Some Pastors have found doing this on the Sunday prior to the anniversary date of Roe vs. Wade (January 22nd) as a timely relevant way to speak out on an issue that has the nation's media attention already.
  • Host a GTA Simulcast
    Some local Pregnancy Centers are tapping into a "Live" Great Turnaround Simulcast as a way of reaching more of their Center's mailing list of donors. More information about this opportunity is available from your local Great Turnaround Partner Center
  • Get the GTA Newsletter
    The Great Turnaround E-Newsletter is filled with facts and information about how Centers around America are united to increase their fundraising levels to historic levels. It reveals how God is truly blessing these efforts! Getting this Newsletter email for yourself and sharing it with 3 local pastors is a tangible, practical and informative way of furthering this worthy cause.
