In 2016, we started our first steps toward establishing an arm of our ministry focused on engaging and equipping fathers. The Fathers First initiative is a targeted approach to reaching men by inviting them to group sessions where they can learn about a dad-friendly topic—taught by a MAN.
In 2019, we brought Craig Shore on staff part-time to spearhead this ministry. Currently our Fathers First sessions meet weekly on Tuesdays at noon.
We believe it is critical to reach these men for two reasons—1, they are a huge part of helping a woman make a pregnancy decision, and 2—they are an even bigger part of bringing that child into the world into a healthy home environment.
