If you are passionate about caring for the needs of unborn babies and their mothers please join our Crisis Pregnancy Ministry at TLC in Elgin.
Client advocates: They greet the client and come alongside her as she goes through her pregnancy test/ultrasound, etc. either in their office or aboard the mobile unit. It can involve some counseling about options and giving the gospel. The client advocate is primarily there to stand beside the client and provide the emotional, relational, spiritual support that we ourselves get from Christ. It could involve simply holding a woman’s hand when she has her ultrasound. TLC provides training for client advocates before they serve.
“Hope services”: help hand out diapers, clothing, and needed material goods to moms who have already had their baby. Spanish knowledge helpful but not required.
Bible study leader: “Surrender the Secret” is an 8 week bible study to help women who have had abortions (or supported one, or who lost their grandchild to abortion…) recover and thrive in Christ’s love.
Men’s ministry: grounded men serve as mentors to husbands, boyfriends, and new fathers through their “new man” ministry.
TLC Prayer warriors: receive a weekly list of prayer requests to intentionally and faithfully pray for TLC
