In 1985, five Lebanon County women in their mid-twenties had a vision to put their pro-life convictions into action by sharing the gospel and practical services with women facing unexpected pregnancy. The Crisis Pregnancy Center of Lebanon County was born.
As the vision grew, we expanded into Lancaster County and changed our name to Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services to reflect our broader service region. Pregnant women, vulnerable to the pressures of abortion, came to us—some having determined that abortion was their only choice. We presented life-giving options to these women, met the needs of those who wanted to parent their babies, and introduced ultrasound services to ensure that abortion-minded women were fully informed. Early on, we recognized the need to provide sexual integrity education and post-abortion support. Additionally, we began equipping men to grow in their role as fathers. Ultimately, all efforts were centered around three aspects of pregnancy—prevention, intervention, and restoration.
In 1998, God gave us a clarion call to align with Him through a new paradigm of worship, discerning prayer, and relational community. He led us to steward and share this new paradigm with others, along with additional ministry expertise. We began serving on life-affirming leadership teams, providing seminars and workshops, partnering with various ministries—locally, nationally, and internationally—as well as creating resources for Christian leaders and the Church at large.
To reflect the broader scope of the ministry—serving clients, partnering with other organizations, and producing resources—we revised our mission statement in 2016.
Alignment with God is the hallmark of our ministry. We actively honor Him and align ourselves with Him as we do the work of the ministry. Alignment with God is the basis of our ministry to clients locally, too. We want them to know they’re created by God and designed for a life-changing, fulfilling relationship with Him that reflects His goodness and glory. This is also the foundation for our partnerships with life-affirming ministries—aligning with God together to further the gospel and the cause of life. And alignment with God is the underpinning of the resources we develop for Christian leaders, adults, and youth—locally and nationally. God has given us a local realm and an enlarged reach, and we are honored to serve Him in both.
