What do ministers and priests say about BNA?

"Acknowledging, embracing, and supporting the dignity of every human life is the most critical need of our day.  Be Not Afraid does this completely and consistently, beginning with the mother and father of the child at risk, and extending to the child and any siblings--encompassing every aspect of life and love.  I have personal experience with their work, and am eternally grateful for their existence.  I share with parents, doctors, and clergy alike the tremendous ministry that is Be Not Afraid."

Father Kevin Peek ~ Archdiocese of Atlanta


"The loving support that Be Not Afraid offers is truly a witness to the Gospel of Life."

Father Patrick Cahill ~ Catholic Diocese of Charlotte


"There is no greater need in active grief than practical guidance, pastoral wisdom, and compassionate presence. Be Not Afraid provides those very helps to grieving parents and hurting loved ones. The gospel of Jesus is made physically evident in their loving care for hurting people. BNA is an essential resource for those in need."


Michael Whitham, Pastor - Reformed University Fellowship, Harvard University
