mountain area pregnancy center

Mountain Area Preg­nancy Ser­vices (MAPS), previously Asheville Pregnancy Support Services, provides compassionate care to women and men dealing with issues surrounding an at risk pregnancy. Our client advocates are specially trained to deal with these distinctive problems for those facing this issue at their POINT OF CRISIS. The impact goes beyond just the man and the woman but can extend to family, friends and others. An unplanned pregnancy is often an unwanted pregnancy and those involved may feel as if abortion is the only choice. MAPS exists to provide women and men accurate information on their choices in a compassionate environment.
Our mission is to be a relevant Christ-centered outreach ministry partnering with the churches of WNC by caring for, counseling and educating women and men regarding, or impacted by, and at risk pregnancy.

One More Child

Our mission is to provide Christ-centered services to vulnerable children and struggling families. Our vision is to bring hope to hurting children, to show that the love of Jesus changes lives and to impact the life of one more child. From the opening of our first orphanage in 1904 to our present-day ministries that have expanded around the globe, we are honored to be helping children in tangible ways. Whether it’s providing clean diapers to a newborn baby, food for a hungry child, safety for an abused child, or foster or adoptive homes to children in crisis, we work to share with children who have been abandoned, neglected or abused the healing love of Jesus. As we reflect on all the years we have been able to help children with thankfulness and awe, we look forward to a future filled with hope for every child in need! Will you join the cause and become a part of our mission to help One More Child?

We strive to reach 100 million children worldwide each year with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

let's change the world!

How can I change the world?

Change the World in 3 Ways:
1. If you want to change the world you start by changing your world! When your life is forever changed the world is forever changed!

How can I change my world? By giving your life to something/someone greater than yourself! Jesus wants to have a lasting relationship with you. Have you ever invited Jesus in your life?

2. If you want to change the world, sign up to serve at your local church. No matter where you live we encourage you to get connected to a Christ-centered, Bible-believing church in your area where you can pour into the lives of those in your community. The Christ-centered local church is the hope of the world as it points people to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
