The development of an extended church family that will rally around the fatherless boy and his family is a vital component to the whole ministry.
Our desire is to demonstrate to the single mother that she is not alone in her struggle to raise a family by herself and that the fatherless boy has many “uncles” and “grandfathers” that will model for him what it means to be a godly man in this world.
The deacons and women of the church will give support to the single mom as well as the boy. But this component of the ministry is not just for the abandoned boy and his mom. Because the negative impact upon abandoned girls is just as profound, our desire is that the local church ministers to the whole family. Fathers in the Field mobilizes the local church into kingdom work and awaken them to the crying needs of abandoned boys and single moms in their community.
