Kelly Christian / Founder

God called our family to Louisiana to pioneer a church in 2020.  The pregnancy center was a door God opened to our surprise shortly after. As someone whose life has been transformed by the blood of Jesus, who overcame poverty, addictions, found forgiveness after my own abortion and teen pregnancy,  I developed an ever growing passion to share the gospel with those who were once where I was. Along with our  team I am determined to do my part to cripple Satan’s army as he seeks to destroy the lives of such families. For all Jesus has done for me, I owe him and those he loves my all. Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Sonya Holden / Director

I have been in full time ministry with my husband for 27 years. 18 years to present as pastors then 9 years prior as evangelist. I have a strong belief that life is precious at every stage and want to do my part to protect those with an unheard voice. We are not givers of life and should have no authority to be takers of life. My burden for this ministry is to help young moms who feel like they have nowhere to go with the overwhelming responsibility of a new baby and to ultimately lead them to Christ who can help with any situation that life may throw their way.

Medical Director & Board of Directors

I am a board certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and practice in the Shreveport/Bossier area. I am originally from Alexandria, but have called Shreveport home for the past 10 years. While in medical school, I felt a strong calling on my life to change my lifelong goal of being a Pediatrician and become an OB/GYN instead. I felt the Lord was preparing me to use the talents He has given me and develop meaningful relationships with women during their pregnancies and beyond. Pregnancy can bring forth a rollercoaster of emotions from joy to loneliness and everything in between, and it is a great pleasure to be used by God to show His love and faithfulness to both mom and baby in such a vulnerable season of life.
