Category: General Sidewalk Advocates for Life Training Days

Tue, 2/19


Sidewalk advocacy refers to crisis intervention in front of the abortion center. It involves actively encouraging a woman to choose life, empowering her to leave the abortion center, and ministering to all present to bring about a conversion of heart from a culture of death to a culture of life, thereby ending abortion. Traditionally known as “sidewalk counseling,” sidewalk advocacy is a re-branded term that emphasizes the peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding methods of this ministry with love as its centerpiece. Prayer provides the foundation for everything we do, for apart from God we can do nothing (cf. John 15:5).

The vision and mission of Sidewalk Advocates for Life is to train, equip, and support local communities across the United States and the world in “sidewalk advocacy”: to be the hands and feet of Christ, thereby eliminating demand and ending abortion.

Community members are invited to become Sidewalk Advocates by attending local sidewalk advocacy training. Two trainings are being offered: Tuesday, February 19, 2019  and Tuesday, February 26 2019, each from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm. To register for one of the trainings, please call, text or email Mary Jeske, the Program Director in Kalamazoo, at 219-393-0644 or The training will take place at Ms. Jeske’s home in Oshtemo, Michigan; the address will be given upon registration.  There is no registration deadline so you have time to discern if God is calling you to this ministry. A $20.00 fee to cover the cost of materials is payable on the day of training by cash or check. Coffee, tea, water, and refreshments will be provided.
