Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. Our acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms with young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past 45 years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include ALL moms. In addition, we are partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 68 countries.
We couldn’t be happier that you’ve found us on this crazy beautiful journey called motherhood. We hope you’ve already connected with a MOPS group or a Mama Meetup™ but if not, use our group search tool to find the right one for you! Every mama nurtures and parents her kiddos differently, and it’s in those differences that we learn from each other. We are better together!
Here at MOPS, we offer many ways to connect within our community!
Mama Meetups™: Networking and friendship-building in meaningful online communities of 8-12 other women. Mama Meetups gather twice per month to discuss the latest live event and connect for some quality mama time. Sign up for a group that fits your schedule and needs, OR gather your own group (such as your MOPS table) and be placed together in a Meetup. If you’re brand new to MOPS or your existing group isn’t currently able to gather – Mama Meetups are the place to be this fall and beyond.

One-of-a-kind mom community: We equip moms to connect face–to–face and heart–to–heart with other moms. But it doesn’t end there. Whether you’re meeting online or in person, the power of our MOPS community extends beyond your group to the group down the road, 1,000 miles away, 10,000 miles away, and across the globe.
MOMcon: Every year, MOMcon provides a space to remind moms from all around the world that they are the most influential people on the planet. It’s a weekend to come together, champion motherhood in all its glory, and renew their minds to what matters most. Part mom camp, part leadership conference, part straight-up CHURCH – you will leave knowing that your motherhood is a catalyst to the plans and purposes God has for your life.
