Equipping Churches to Minister in Times of Child Loss, Part 1

Is your church typical with a greater number of women in it than men? On this podcast Dr. Carol Loescher, an OB-GYN physician and GFA missionary, shares how one in five women have suffered a miscarriage. With miscarriages being such a common experience, how can the church be better equipped to minister to couples suffering this kind of loss? Women especially need to speak truth into other women's lives and minister compassionately to women's spiritual needs. Listen as Dr. Loescher, Rachel Barilla (GFA missionary to Cameroon), and Gretchen Fant discuss this topic in Episode 71 of RE:CHURCH. Access RE:CHURCH as a video‚Äč on YouTube.
