ProGrace facilitates a training program for churches to resolve the tensions that surround abortion:

TENSION #1

Whenever we talk about abortion it quickly becomes political.

ProGrace provides biblical teaching addressing God’s heart for both the woman and the child, removing the either/or mentality of the political language.

TENSION #2

TENSION #3

We don’t know how to create a safe environment for women facing unplanned pregnancy.
