Implementing Making Life Disciples

This page is designed to provide you with supplemental materials to enhance your church's delivery of the Making Life DisciplesTM (MLD) curriculum.

What is Making Life Disciples

Making Life Disciples is a ministry resource designed to equip the church to offer compassion, hope, help, and discipleship to women and men facing pregnancy decisions. It is a practical ministry response to the abortion crises. Download your program flyer to see the details of each lesson and what training is available.

How do I Implement Making Life Disciples?

Find one or two others at your church and first commit to pray about bringing this life-affirming ministry to your church. Next, commit together with them to become more informed and prepared. We have put together a three step guide as you start this process and we offer one-on-one support through our staff of regional coordinators. Download your guide below.

Next Steps After You Are Trained

Equal Rights Institute - Equal Rights Institute trains pro-life advocates to think clearly, reason honestly, and argue persuasively. They use speaking, writing, podcasts, campus outreach, and online courses to equip pro-life people in the areas of practical dialogue tips, pro-life philosophy, and relational apologetic. They believe that the pro-life movement becoming more loving and thoughtful is a necessary (although not sufficient) condition to change our culture enough to end legal abortion. This is why they speak so often on relational apologetics, which they define as “cultivating relationships with people who have different beliefs, for the sake of genuine friendship and for discovering truth together.

SaveOne offers help for men, women, and family members/friends, through group study, online study, or answering questions and giving encouragement through self-study.

Sheila chose abortion in 1985 for her first child and lived with mental and emotional anguish for 7 years following that choice. Their book is written from her personal experience of healing after abortion. Check out their “Success Stories” to see what other people are saying about the help SaveOne gave them.

Building a Culture of Relational Apologetics around MLD

Building a Gospel-centered Team Around MLD

Churches for Life - The mission of Churches for Life is to nourish churches as gospel-driven champions of life. Their distinctive focus is to start Life Teams in churches who work with the church leadership to equip their congregation to honor and dignify all life from conception to natural death.  Churches for Life trains Life Teams and then provides support and encouragement through ongoing coaching. Their three passions are 1) The gospel of Jesus Christ 2) the local church and 3) championing life


Embrace Grace - Embrace Grace is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed for the purpose of providing emotional, practical and spiritual support for single, young women who find themselves in an unintended pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower churches across the nation to be a safe and non-judging place for the girls to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt.
