Parent Life

What is Parent Life Ministry?

The YFC Parent Life ministry connects trained adults with pregnant girls and teenage parents in programs designed to help them make good choices and establish a solid foundation, not only in their lives, but also in the lives of their babies.

Like every ministry of YFC, Parent Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as life-long followers of Jesus Christ. The rate of pregnancy among American teens is almost twice that of British and nearly four times that of French teenagers (Singh and Darroch, 2000). Pregnancy is only one aspect of the situation. The majority of the teens will go through with their pregnancy and choose to be the primary caregiver. We must come along side them and assist them to become the best moms and dads that they can.

In 2001 there were 175 ministry sites throughout the U.S. Thousands of teenage parents are participating in local ministries. Some communities are ministering to four to ten teens while others are working with hundreds.
