History

In 1985, five Lebanon County women in their mid-twenties had a vision to act on their life-affirming convictions by sharing the gospel and practical services with women facing unintended 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 the 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 began offering ultrasound services to ensure that abortion-minded women were fully informed. Early on, we began providing sexual integrity education and post-abortion support. Additionally, we began equipping men to grow in their role as fathers. Ultimately, our services 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. As He matured this paradigm within us, He led us to steward and share it with others. He also led us to come alongside life-affirming ministries with general ministry expertise. We began serving on life-affirming leadership teams, providing seminars and workshops, and partnering with various ministries-locally, nationally, and internationally. We also began creating resources for Christian leaders and the Church at large.

In 2016, we revised our mission statement to reflect the broader, three-fold scope of the ministry: 1) serving clients, 2) partnering with other organizations, and 3) producing resources. While our efforts coincided with the enlarged vision God had given us, our name and brand did not reflect that expansion. We began seeking God for a new name, and He revealed that it was to be Align Life Ministries. In February 2020 our name changed to Align Life Ministries to be in sync with our calling.

Alignment with God is our ministry's hallmark. We actively align ourselves with Him as we do the work of the ministry. Alignment with God is the basis of our services to young moms and dads, 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 of our partnerships with life-affirming ministries-aligning with God together to further the gospel and the cause of life. And it's 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.
