Centers of Excellence University is Care Net's online professional development program for pregnancy center team members: from the board of directors to staff and volunteers. These quality courses teach best practices and spiritual truths that will increase your center’s effectiveness. The user-friendly online learning platform makes it easy and engaging to access the courses.

Tap into the knowledge gleaned from Care Net's 45-year history equipping pregnancy centers to minister to women and men considering abortion. 

"I have to say this training was done very well!  As a nurse, we have to get ongoing CEs for our licensure and I have to say, this was one of the best trainings I have ever done. CareNet did an amazing job with the clarity of information, wonderful delivery, and presentation, and the content was Christ based.....not religiously based (with self-righteousness).  I am super excited about getting involved and look forward to the next steps."

“For someone trying to take on marketing for a pregnancy center who has absolutely no idea what they're doing (me) this is a wonderful, approachable course to go through.” 

Linde Mitzel

“I enjoyed the fact that this course is specifically tailored to what our pregnancy center envisions and does for clients. It reminded me that I am here to serve those who are facing unexpected pregnancies because Jesus came to serve and not to be served.”

Making Life Disciples

Equip a team of first responders in your church to provide compassion, hope, and help to women and men considering abortion 

The courts can make abortion illegal but only God through his church can make abortion unthinkable.

Yet, according to data from The Guttmacher Institute, 54% of women who have abortions identify as Christians. And our research found that 2 in 5 women who have abortions were attending church at least once a month at the time of their first abortion.

Adapted from Care Net’s decades of pregnancy center ministry experience, Making Life Disciples is a ministry on-ramp that your church will use to reach women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. It’s a practical ministry response to the abortion crisis that equips your church to lead with credibility and love.

Through 8 one-and-half-hour sessions, Making Life Disciples will train you to: 

  • Watch for and reach the abortion-vulnerable in your church.
     
  • Walk alongside women and men making difficult pregnancy decisions, ministering to their needs with love and grace.

  • Connect the abortion vulnerable to the support they need to choose life.
     
  • Build better bridges between your local pregnancy centers and your church’s discipleship ministry.

All of these benefits for $19.95 for the self-paced course or $16.50 per learner for a group-based course.

For a limited time, get the self-paced course for free with the code "MLDFREE20" at checkout. 

What Learners Are Saying:

"Three churches recently completed the Making Life Disciples course. Upon their graduation, I went to meet with each class. Oh, they had so many questions! They, of course, wondered how soon it would be before they “got a girl”! Of course, I asked the same thing! I cannot believe it myself, but as I am writing this, we have “the girl” right now across from my office meeting with a Life Disciple (We are calling them ‘Life Mentors…’). This young woman had an appointment for an abortion scheduled for next week when she first came to us. During that appointment, she told our R.N. that she had nobody to help her during this difficult time. Our nurse knew immediately that we did have someone that could come alongside her! The call was made, and they have connected"

Marcia Marron 
Executive Director,
Life Choices Womens Clinic, Eustis, FL 

“I just wanted you to know that we trained 25 people... We had a commissioning dinner and celebration on Friday. On Monday morning, one of our Life Disciples (LD) came into contact with an abortion-minded young woman who has an abortion appointment on Thursday. Now she has an ultrasound scheduled at our office on Wed. So grateful for our LD, who has intervened and ministered to this young woman. Because of the intervention, this young woman is now more open... to continuing her pregnancy and seriously considering adoption... Thanks for all you do… ”
