The Footprints Ministry is a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization that began in August of 2007 at Heritage Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL. We began serving Baptist South hospital in Montgomery. In December of 2007 we expanded our ministry to Baptist East hospital in Montgomery. We also serve St. Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham, Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville and Shelby Baptist Medical Center in Alabaster, Alabama. Footprints Ministry distributes gift bags to parents who have a baby admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Baptist East and Baptist South hospitals serve 800 babies per year from 20 surrounding counties. St. Vincent's hospital serves around 350 babies per year. Footprints Ministry bags contain many items to provide hope and comfort to families during their NICU stay. We have distributed over 7,000 bags since August of 2007. In 2013, we will distribute over 2,700 Footprints bags! In addition to our Footprints gift bags we also make seasonal visits during Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Christmas.
This ministry has touched the lives of so many families! We've had opportunities to meet with these families and pray with them. We've also made many friends through this ministry. Our prayer is that we will share the love of Christ with these families and provide comfort and encouragement to them during the most exciting and difficult time in their life.
