Widows need someone to help them sort through their emotions and in the process, someone who will cry with them, allow them to express fully their pain and struggles and who will be there for them as they face their crises.

We partner with the widows church to create a Widow Small Group that addresses their needs and helps them find their new normal.  Stand in the Gap provides ministry guides and support resources that aid the church in its efforts to support the widows of it’s community.   The guides consist of 25 best-case practices and resources. Stand in the Gap is now in states across the US and growing!

Our research shows that widows are hurting deeply one year, two years and even ten years plus.  In a SITGM small group there is no directing, counseling, steering toward a predetermined goal, no manipulation, no fixing — just a complete reliance on God to work.
