Single Mom Ministry Leader Certification2018-07-10T16:49:38+00:00

We help Ministry Leaders to make the most impact in single mom’s lives!

The Life of a Single Mom has been ministering to single mothers for more than a decade. When we started, there were very little resources, tools, and support on the market to help those who were in ministry to single mothers. It often felt like we were knocking down walls in a completely unchartered territory. And now, we want to share what we’ve learned with you!

Each year, more than 72,000 single mothers connect to a single moms’ support group throughout the United States and beyond – because of you – ministry leaders like you. Our goal is to ensure that no single mom walks alone. We are a connector of resources.  One of the ways we do that is by encouraging, equipping, and empowering YOU – the single mom ministry leader! To date, we have worked with more than 1,500 churches and community groups, including corporations, colleges, and nonprofits,  to establish, grow, or improve a single moms’ ministry plan. We help you build outreach plans, support groups, and events for single mothers that are effective. Whether you are new to single mom’s ministry or have been doing it for years, The Life of a Single Mom Ministry Leader Certification can help you and the best part? It’s absolutely FREE!

“It should be the mission of every Christian to find the lost, broken, hurting, and isolated. Ministering to single mothers does just that.

~Jennifer Maggio, Chief Executive Officer of The Life of a Single Mom

By the time you complete this certification, you will have received:


Become more confident in your leadership skills. Did you know that many single mom’s ministry leaders often worry that they
aren’t “doing enough”. They fear they lack the skills necessary to make a meaningful impact. Let us teach you leadership principles that will not only help you reach more single moms, but unearth the leader that God created you to be.


We are often asked questions like “What does The Life of a Single Mom Do?” or “What Resources are out there to support me as I minister to single moms?” We offer tons of free resources, as well as low-cost curriculum, services, and tools that will help you along your journey in single moms’ ministry. Learn how we established the mission and vision of seeing no single mom walk alone, how to reach unchurched single moms, and ways to grow your ministry.


There are critical errors that many ministry leaders make, when ministering to the single parent family.  We’ll help you identify the top mistakes many single mom ministry leaders are making, avoid them, and grow your ministry, all at the same time. The more you know, the more you grow.  We want you to carry the passion of seeing no single mom walk alone in your community and church.
