Agape: Live the Promise
Agape: Live the Promise hopes to inspire and equip churches to “live the promise” of Psalm 68:6 – that “God sets the lonely in families.” Agape of Central Alabama is committed to seeing this promise lived out for vulnerable children.
Agape: Live The Promise is a promising plan for foster care, equipping churches to flood the child welfare system with well-trained and well-supported foster families. In the US, there are 300,000 churches and 400,000 children in foster care. If every church raises up and supports one foster family then there will be more than enough families for children and specifically, sibling groups, to have loving Christian homes.
We know churches want to engage, they simply need a strong vehicle or we like to call it a Family Advocacy Ministry (FAM). Envisioning, Establishing and Equipping a FAM to thrive within your local church is facilitated through the training presented at our Agape: Live The Promise Advocate Clinic.
The Advocate Clinic provides church volunteers, or Advocates, with detailed training on how to begin and maintain a strong FAM at their church. The first Agape: Live The Promise Advocate Clinic will be held on November 2 at Redland Hills Church in Wetumpka, AL. We’d love to have you join us to learn more.
