Every year at Heartbeat International’s Annual Pregnancy Conference partners are honored as they celebrate milestones in years of service to pregnancy help and we pause to recognize the “breakthroughs” as servant leaders persevere and courageously advance the mission of life.
Heartbeat International, the largest network of pregnancy help organizations in the world, welcomed over 1500 attendees to its 52nd Annual Conference this past week in Louisville, Ky.
“Breakthrough” was not just the theme this year, but a historical recognition of battles won and a visionary view of victories to be claimed.
Guided by Scripture and grace like no other, pregnancy center leaders from the United States and abroad, including leaders from 24 countries, remained focused throughout the Conference on Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
