Partner With You

 Historically, the only individually more vulnerable than the widow, or single mother is her children. We long to partner with individuals, small groups and churches to empower them to minister effectively to single mothers and their children, relieving them from the cycle of dysfunction and poverty.

In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson initiated the welfare program making sure that the government, not the church, was be responsible for the poor and distress. The church gladly said yes and abdicated her biblical mandate. Therefore, the blessings that go with ministering to the widow, orphan, and alien were abdicated also.

We have a vision to see the church receive the blessings outlined in Isaiah 58. We hope to see the church take back her god-given position of reaching out to these families. By equipping individuals, churches and communities begin their own Single Mother Program, we can see this trend change.

In Theresa McKenna's book, "The Hidden Mission Field", she argues that possibly the reason for the huge success of the 1st Century church was their outreach to the widows and orphans. "the church in Antioch cared for three thousand widows. Josphus reportedly wrote to Rome that the citizens were astounded that these people calling themselves Christians cared not only for their own widows, but for others as well." There is another report that the church in Rome was caring for over fifteen hundred widows. She goes on to state "The church will explode if we intentionally minister to these families".

Current statistics show that 67% of single parents in the United States do not actively attend a local church. Yet, less than 1% of all Christian evangelical churches have any sort of long-term, sustainable single parent ministry and/or outreach program.  

While evidence points to the reality that these women and children need to be embraced by the local church body, it is also true that the local body is in desperate need of the talents, skills, and gifts that these women have.

In recent history the church has not been found to be the warm welcoming environment for Single Mothers to find safety and security while they rebuild their lives. The Single MOM KC is passionate about seeing this trend change.
