Single Parent Alliance & Resource Coalition (S.P.A.R.C.), is a ministry that will provide avenues to strengthen single moms and dads individually and work towards rebuilding households. Hope and Dev, a husband-and-wife team, have both been single parents and understand many of the challenges single parents face. Their marriage is also proof that God is faithful and will restore what the enemy has stolen. Their pasts have given them hearts for helping single moms and dads overcome life’s obstacles and mend their families in Christ-centered homes.
One of the biggest needs for single parents is knowing where to go when they need help, so a key component of this ministry will be serving as a “data bank” of available resources. S.P.A.R.C. will offer a list of resources for each county like assistance programs, affordable housing, good lawyers and counselors, and even trustworthy handymen. A goal of this ministry is to help single parents become successful, more independent and provide for their kids. To do this, there will be courses focusing on job and life skills such as resume writing, job interviewing, budgeting, cooking, organization/cleaning, and more. The top priority of this ministry is to build and/or maintain Christ-centered homes with Godly parents at the helm. To do this, one of the first things we will offer is small group meetings to get people together studying God’s Word. This ministry is still in the building phase and will fully launch in the spring of 2022.
