Here at MOPS, we believe in the church.
Welcome to MOPS, friend. We are excited to get to know you!
We know in our gut that when churches reside in a community, profound things happen.
We have seen time and time again that showing up in ways that the people who live down the street and around the corner are longing for, causes the very essence of Jesus to seep onto sidewalks and into bodegas, through open windows and into hearts.
That’s why we support churches in reaching their communities. And we know that one of the best ways to influence communities is to impact families.
MOPS is an intergenerational community engagement offering that equips churches with resources to engage moms in their community.
We serve moms of all ages with children age birth through elementary school-age, and offer an opportunity for seasoned mentor moms to serve.
MOPS is all about offering moms a place to engage in community, with your church as the hub.
We’ve worked for over 40 years to create tools that support churches and leaders and engage moms on a soul impact level. MOPS has everything you need to succeed at this ministry.
We would love to help you welcome the women in your neighborhood who are looking for glimmers of hope, deep friendships and a faith community that embraces them with embarrassingly big hugs.

What people are saying about MOPS…
I am so grateful to our MOPS ministry that is actually making a difference in our community and church as it impacts this demographic for the Kingdom. Every week I am welcoming new young families to our church, many of which their first contact to us was through the MOPS ministry.
Poly Rouse, Pastor
Hermitage Hills Baptist Church
Over the years, I have seen time and time again how MOPS is an on-ramp for women in to church. Women often start to seek spiritual meaning after having children; they ask more questions and may begin to seek God in a new way. At our church, about 1/3 of the MOPS group moms are from outside our church. That’s totally great! I love that we have a mix of women in our MOPS group. I know that there are women coming to church for the first time, or returning to church, and I know that moms are coming to Christ. We know that new families come to the church because of MOPS.

MOPS has been ahead of culture for years. MOPS says, ‘Here is a place you can come and belong. We’re going to make it a safe place and meet you right where you are. Belong here as long as you want, then belief can come whoever you are ready as the spirit moves in your life.’ While many organizations have to rethink their approach, MOPS is poised to reach the culture today.
