Agape is Going Mobile
Since opening its doors in downtown Round Rock in 2004, Agape has ministered to over 12,000 first-time clients with free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, options counseling and the good news of Jesus Christ. Because of God’s faithfulness and the generosity of our supporters, this past summer Agape was able to retire the debt on our building. After that, Agape’s Board of Directors began to prayerfully consider if this was the time to expand our ministry. We asked ourselves many questions, did much research, and continued to go to the Lord.
Should we open a satellite office elsewhere? Should we try to buy an entirely new facility? These and other considerations were weighed until we felt His peace settle over us… We felt that indeed the Lord is leading us to expand our reach by purchasing a mobile unit that will enable us to GO to women in crisis.
Why go mobile? An RV outfitted as an ‘Agape on wheels’ will allow us tremendous flexibility to move to locations where our clients are, any day of the week. This will expand our ministry to other demographic/geographic areas where mobile units currently are not established. The mobile staff will be able to perform pregnancy tests and ultrasounds and provide options counseling on the spot. At the end of the visit, the Gospel will be shared, and women will be given the opportunity to sign up for classes at Agape so that we can continue to minister to them. With this new ministry, we hope to reach more women, especially those who are abortion-minded with the truth and hope of Jesus Christ.
