Grantee Spotlight

The MomCo exists to encourage and equip moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women and leaders, in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with the local church. Since its inception in 1973, The MomCo (formally MOPS International) has been a global force in evangelism through reaching moms worldwide. Initially launched in Colorado by eight women, The MomCo now impacts 4.75 million moms in the U.S. and 82,608 moms globally through in-person, digital and social programming every year. Currently, there are 79,000 meetups held annually; hosted in 104 countries and translated into 25 languages. Every year, MomCo develops new programs and curriculum to meet the unique needs of moms within various mothering contexts - from moms of special needs kids to military moms to moms in countries where the Christian population is sparse. Recognizing the impact mothers have in shaping their family’s faith, MomCo provides a replicable model that works in every cultural context offering women community, leadership training, practical parenting tools, mentoring, and the opportunity to meet Jesus for the first time or deepen their relationship. In the past 8 years, over 53,000 women have made a decision to follow Jesus because of their MomCo participation.
