In 1960, just 9 percent of American children lived in single-parent homes. In 2014, 40 percent of U.S. births were to unmarried women. But increasingly, Assemblies of God churches are awakening to these women’s needs in matters both spiritual and practical. Among those needs are ensuring their children’s well-being, despite the lack of a dad in the household. Lois Breit, the first AG U.S. missionary appointed to minister to single moms has found that most of the congregations she’s visited in the past two years are in communities where single-parent families make up almost half the households. “Churches are stunned at these numbers and are being moved to action,” says Breit. “When the Church meets the challenges single parents bring, generational patterns are broken, families are healed, and futures are forever changed.”
