WHO CAN START A TWELVE 12 GROUP?
Local Twelve 12 groups are co-founded by at least 2 women who are compassionate Christ-followers eager to share their faith with their peers, build a community of support for women walking through infertility and pregnancy loss and have the support of their local church in their area.
WHERE DO TWELVE 12 GROUPS MEET?
Twelve 12 Ministries aims to create a safe environment for women to seek, learn, and gather in-person, in small groups, large groups or one-on-one. Many Twelve 12 groups meet for week-day support group meetings at a host church.
WHO ATTENDS TWELVE 12 GROUPS?
Twelve 12 Ministries support group attendees are women who are struggling to conceive with infertility, being barren, or suffering a loss through miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion. You will find women who may or may not have living children, going through infertility treatments or learning to navigate life childless. At Twelve 12 Ministries, we welcome women of all faith backgrounds and intentionally design our groups to best meet the needs of women exploring Christianity for the first time or the first time in a long time while maintaining space for strong Christian leaders to build community with everyone in attendance.
WHEN SHOULD WE START?
Twelve 12 Ministries groups usually meet once a week for 8-weeks each quarter and break for summer and Christmas holidays. Twelve 12 Ministries groups either launch at the beginning of the Spring semester in February or the Fall semester in September. We will help you figure out the best time for your group to launch.
HOW IS A TWELVE 12 GROUP FUNDED?
Twelve 12 Ministries groups can be sponsored by a church, individual(s), or a corporation; however every group must have a church partner willing to provide leadership support to local Twelve 12 Directors and the ability to welcome new women into their church body.
WHAT KIND OF SUPPORT DOES TWELVE 12 PROVIDE?
We are going to help you recruit volunteers, launch the group, host your webpage, manage the registrations for your events, supply you with social media and communications support and train all of your leaders on the most effective way to serve in your context. This includes, but is not limited to, regular and on-going coaching from the HQ staff, and a whole website devoted to online training.
IS THIS REALLY FOR ME?
The fact that you are reading this is no accident. Remember how you felt walking through your difficult season of infertility or loss? We all wanted guidance and support. You can be that for someone else, while building your relationship with Christ, and developing new leadership skills that comes from being a group leader. Women who have life experiences to share, who are great listeners, have a caring heart and who are interested in having a major impact in the community make great group leaders! We are so honored to walk alongside you and welcome you to this amazing journey.
