What is MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. MOPS is a worldwide non-denominational ministry that encourages mothers of young children, who are adjusting to the joys and challenges of motherhood. MOPS is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs, making connections, and experiencing God’s love. MOPS International exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. While many organizations focus on making a better world for our children, MOPS focuses on making better children for our world. How? By meeting the needs of their mothers, because when we impact a mom, we impact a child, and ultimately, impact the world. Better Moms Make a Better World.
Who can be in MOPS?
MOPS is open to ANY mother of children, newborn through kindergarten.
What is MOMSnext?
MOMSnext is a group experience designed to encourage, equip and develop mothers of school-age children. This is a new ministry arm of MOPS International extending the current mission statement to reach more mothers and their families for Christ.
