One goal of this ministry is raising awareness regarding the need for families in our area to serve as foster and adoptive parents to children locally and internationally.
There are a number of families currently in Prestonwood Baptist Church that have adopted or currently foster children or are pursing adoption and foster care. This ministry provides support for these families as well as education to deal with the unique nature of foster care and adoption.
As part of this ministry we pray for these families, in addition to, children that are currently awaiting adoption or are in foster care.
There are many families that support foster and adoptive children that are not connected to a local church. Through events, reach out to those families and connect them to the life of Prestonwood.
