Wales Goebel General Fund
In 1980, Wales Goebel founded Sav-A-Life in response to the broad scope of problems associated with sexual promiscuity, unplanned pregnancy and abortion on demand. Mr. Goebel was challenged and convicted by a sermon about the Sanctity of Life to create a place where women facing an unwanted or crisis pregnancy could go to learn more about their options and to find available resources.
No one could have foreseen the growth in this ministry that assists women, men and families through the most challenging of circumstances. Today FREE and CONFIDENTIAL services include ultrasound, initial prenatal visits, STD testing and treatment for men and women, parenting classes, fatherhood programming, childbirth education, abstinence education, post-abortion recovery and much more. Through the years well over 60,000 clients have been served through these services.
Sav-A-Life Pregnancy Test Center continues to be the largest crisis pregnancy center in the Birmingham metropolitan area. We have saved as many as 10,000 babies in our 35 years of serving Jefferson and Shelby counties in Alabama, by helping parents embrace the Truth of God’s Word and make Life-affirming decisions about their unborn children. Our comprehensive programs meet the health, emotional and spiritual needs of our clients by offering them access to free doctors, nurses, and trained counselors so that they are fully equipped to become better individuals, spouses and parents.
As we celebrate 35 years of ministry, we feel it is only fitting to recognize the man God called to begin Sav-A-Life by setting up the Wales Goebel Fund. All contributions will be directed to the general fund which will support all areas of ministries here at Sav-A-Life Pregnancy Test Center for the short term and well into the future. What better way to honor Mr. Goebel for the work for which he is still so passionate.
