A Day in the Life of Michele Shoun of Baptists for Life (continued)
Baptists for Life has always striven to keep a finger on the pulse of pregnancy care centers and to help them in any way we can. Our goal is to establish and maintain PCCs as viable evangelistic outreaches. In addition to our annual Leadership Summits in July, we’ve used various formats to communicate with centers. In my capacity as editor, I’ve also served as a liaison with centers. Part of my daily task is sorting through reams of information that crosses my desk and desktop. I like to pass that information on whenever it’s relevant.
In earlier days we published a quarterly newsletter for our associated centers . . . on paper, and sent it through the mail. Oh, how times have changed! We since graduated to an e-newsletter, the PCC List, which came out at least three times a week, and now we have a blog updated daily. The PCC List blog is a repository of information aimed at directors with all their varied tasks and constituencies in mind – staff and board members, volunteers, clients, donors, churches, the media, and the community-at-large.
As I research information and resources for Baptists for Life, I keep the needs of pastors in mind as well. BFL’s mission is to “help the Body of Christ articulate the biblical pro-life message in word and deed.” We work closely with churches and pastors. Toward that effort, we’ve developed the Pro-Life Pastor’s Corner blog as a storehouse of news and inspirational items with them in mind.
