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; it's not about politics. Download your program flyer to see the details of each lesson and what training is available.

How do I Implement Making Life Disciples?

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.
