“Over 25 years ago, God put into my heart a deep and abiding passion for healthy, whole, functioning families. MOPS provides what mums of young children desperately need.

Conference Manager

“I love seeing leaders connect with, and learn from, each other at conferences. Getting together at conference means our leaders are better equipped to lead their MOPS group, which in turn means our mums are better equipped to be the best mums they can be.” Miranda

“I am passionate about MOPS because of the great value it places on mums and their influential roles in their families and communities. I first attended a MOPS group when my baby was 18 months old – and I knew immediately that I wanted every mum to have the chance to attend MOPS.” Cherie
