Lifeline Children’s Services exists to equip the Body of Christ to manifest the gospel to vulnerable children.
Lifeline’s International and Domestic Adoption Programs exist to provide a hope and a future through the gospel for vulnerable children who reside in the United States and across the world. Lifeline is firmly committed to discipling, encouraging, and supporting Christian adoptive families in their journey by equipping, educating, and walking closely with them before, during, and after welcoming their child(ren) into their family.
Lifeline’s deepest desire is for women and men in unexpected pregnancies to embrace the gospel of Jesus. Our hope is that they understand they and their child are made in the image of God and are therefore valuable. We empower them to choose the best life-giving option for them and their unborn child. We accomplish this through 24/7 support, options counseling, connecting them to tangible resources, adoption planning, and post-placement support.
Lifeline seeks to bridge the gap between local churches and the child protective services of the state. To accomplish this, we partner with local churches in recruiting, training, and equipping foster families, and we equip churches to provide on-going support for both birth families and foster families. Lifeline’s goal is that the local church would be the hands and feet of Jesus to children in foster care, birth families, and other professionals serving them. We seek to accomplish this through traditional Foster Care, Harbor Families™, and Families Count™.
Throughout the world there are more than 153 million orphans. However, less than 1% of these children will be adopted. The call to care for the orphan in distress cannot be fulfilled through adoption alone. (un)adopted exists to reach orphaned and vulnerable children with the hope of the gospel and equip them with the life skills needed to bring about sustainable community transformation.
Counseling & Education
As International adoption has changed, Lifeline began this ministry to adoptive families to encourage them and to equip them with vital knowledge and resources to nurture and disciple children who may be coming from hard places. We have expanded our ministry to include teaching, training, counseling, and support services that are available throughout the adoption and fostering journey.
