Benefits of association with Life Matters Worldwide

Association strengthens partnerships between like-minded PCCs. Interaction and networking are facilitated through the Summit (an annual conference), the prayer calendar, and social networks. Association fees help Life Matters Worldwide provide ongoing education and support for PCCs.

The purpose of Life Matters Worldwide is to establish and help sustain PCCs as effective gospel outreaches. We seek to strengthen partnerships between PCCs and churches. 

Sometimes you just need someone to talk to, a person who cares on the other end of the line. We'd like to do that for you, as with have done for other centers. Here are a few examples:

Board training, volunteer training, center consultation, and order processing are important services we offer in the U.S. and internationally. Associates have access to free phone consultation. Excellence and Multi-Satellite level associates also receive free access to training webinars as they become available.

This manual developed by Life Matters Worldwide serves as an in-depth assessment tool and includes sample policies and procedures, job descriptions, surveys, evaluations, and other resources to ensure your center meets high standards that enhance effective operations and Gospel ministry. It is provided to Life Matters Worldwide associates. See the explanation of fees and benefits for details.

Centers associated with Life Matters Worldwide are listed in the 'Need Help?' section of our website. A direct link to your website and contact information is included. We also place your center on a Google map, making it easy for viewers to locate it.

Life Matters Worldwide publishes a prayer calendar for associated centers and ministries which is made available by post, email, and on our website. Prayer requests from associated centers are noted in the calendar, which is sent to more than 1300 prayer partners all over the country. We solicit prayer requests from you every other month.

In addition to discounts from Life Matters Worldwide on The Summit and materials from our store, association with LMW may entitle your center to discounts from other pro-life organizations, including insurance agencies. Contact those organizations for information.

Ascent is a one-day event designed to give PCCs staff, volunteers, and board members a spiritual and emotional lift. Learn about our next one here.
