A FRESH NEW VISION FOR AN AGE-OLD CALLING
When I started The M.O.M. Initiative, I wasn’t sure how women were going to respond. My experience in the 80’s left me wondering if our culture has somehow become so isolated that women wouldn’t even consider mentoring. But what I have found is the opposite is true.
Women are not only longing to be mentored but mentors are longing to step into their God-given, Titus 2 roles and make a difference for such a time as this. Seeing women mentoring others to leave a legacy of faith and change the world one life at a time…well, that truly is a beautiful thing!
The M.O.M. Initiative is a comprehensive ministry that not only ministers to mothers, but bridges the gap between a young mother’s need for a mentor and the church’s need for resources and support while establishing a community experience for mothers and mentors. The M.O.M. Initiative is designed to give young mothers a biblical foundation of what a mother is and what a mother does while also providing tools for churches to become intentionally missional about mentoring and giving mentors the resources, support and community they need to feel equipped and encouraged enough to mentor other mothers.
The M.O.M. Initiative is an acrostic for Mothers On a Mission to Mentor Other Mothers and we believe that if the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, then the church that mentors those hands will win it.
We really want to start a revolution of mommas who are willing to take Titus 2 to the streets and make a difference not only within the church but beyond the four walls of the church.
Our new ministry is in its fledgling stages. The book is being developed and the website is only ten months new. Here’s a glance at what The M.O.M. Initiative is all about:
The M.O.M. Initiative website exists to support moms on both side of the mentor equation and provides fresh ideas, practical help, encouragement and devotions almost every day. Their is a chat room available for those who want to make appointments with a M.O.M. Mentor and chat with them online and as churches implement this missional mentoring ministry, they will list their contact information online and give mentees an opportunity to connect with a mentor nearest them.
The M.O.M. Initiative book is being developed to become tools in the hands of mentors who are ready to take Titus 2 to the streets… to mentor moms in the church, in low income housing projects, in juvenile shelters, in homes for unwed mothers, in apartment communities… wherever young moms can be found.
Many moms have a strong desire to mentor other mothers but they long to have adequate resources and support to help foster those mentoring relationships. The M.O.M. Initiative fills that need and gives mentors the confidence, support and resources to step into their Titus 2 identities and begin changing the world one mom at a time.
We’d love for you to join us! Just pop over to our website and click on “Join the Revolution” to receive ministry updates and be among the first to be contacted when the book is made available.

“I have been looking for something like this for a long time.” ~ Sherry
“So interested in the Titus 2 initiative! I’ve prayed for so long for a mentor but it’s never happened for me. I have had the opportunity to mentor someone else in a small way but would love to be better equipped.” ~ Christy
