Mission To empower single moms to create healthy homes.

Arise Ministries is a 501(c)3 organization co-founded by Pam Kanaly and Shelley Pulliam in 2002. The mission is to help single mothers create healthy homes. Arise Ministries serves a variety of single moms: women who are widowed, single again, never married, grandmothers raising grandchildren, as well as women who have adopted children or their husbands are incarcerated or at war. Pam knew as a single mother that God would one day raise her up to start a nonprofit for single mothers. Shelley served as an educator and a nonprofit expert in Holocaust education. With Shelley’s background as a teacher and her love for children and Pam’s affection for the single mothers, they combined their expertise and founded Arise Ministries. Arise Ministries give single moms tools for navigating real life. Through their summer conferences, endorsed by Governors Brad Henry and Mary Fallin, their impact has reached thousands of single mothers and children. Their free online education center contains videos, articles, podcasts, Bible studies and more, for parents raising children alone. The organization is staffed by 6 positions with a healthy 12 person Board of Directors. Arise Ministries has been recognized for its accomplishments and devotion to excellence not only in Oklahoma but Washington, DC.

Arise Ministries’ top four accomplishments from the past year include:
  • Increased engagement with our target audience
  • Expanded community awareness of the ministry and our mission
  • Diversified and enlarged our presence in digital communication with our podcasts
  • Growth of our online Bible studies
For the current and upcoming year we have set the following goals:
  • Discover new ways to connect with our moms
  • Continue excellence in programming
  • Grow men’s fundraising breakfast
  • Increase attendance at events
  • Develop stronger relationships with churches and partner organizations
Every organization is faced with challenges as they strive for growth and impact. Over the years, our needs have changed as goals and strategies have fluctuated and adapted to our clientele. Currently, these are what we consider our most pressing needs:
  1. Discover ways to reach more single moms – how do we find them and make them aware of our resources?
  2. Expand our donor base – it is vital that we increase our sphere of influence and grow beyond our current list of faithful donors.
  3. Continue to provide excellent programs and resources and handle our increasing work load with our current staff size.
  4. Locate new sources of income – grants, in-kind donations, business partnerships, etc. in order to increase our outreach.
  5. Identify and engage churches and organizations for partnerships, which would allow us to impact more single-parent families.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
While most nonprofits focus on single moms physical needs (rent, diapers, food), Arise Ministries is the only single mother outreach that focuses solely on single mothers spiritual development and emotional wellness. Arise Ministries gives single mothers opportunities to connect through our events and online resources.
No other organization provides single mothers with online video Bible studies with downloadable questions for personal or small group study that strengthens them in the areas of parenting, relationships, emotional health, career development and financial guidance. Arise Ministries is one of America’s only single mother nonprofits that provides a summer weekend conference for not only the moms but the children. While the trend of having conferences over the last five years has declined, Arise Ministries has maintained conference progress every summer since 2004. These conferences have reached over 17,000 single mothers and children where expert single-parent keynote speakers and breakout session teachers have given pertinent tools and taught biblical principles for navigating well their roles as mothers.
There is no other outreach to single mothers in this nation equivalent to Arise Ministries. With almost 1/3 of our homes in America being occupied by a single parent, with 87% of those employed with single mothers at the helm, never has there been a greater need to reach these moms. Our future generation of children lies in these homes. Arise Ministries has a proven track record of changing lives. If one is looking for an organization that impacts single mothers raising children alone, ARISE MINISTRIES takes the lead.
Board Chair Statement
Four years ago my wife and I were invited to serve on the Arise Ministries Board of Directors, of which I’m now president. The mission of this organization is near and dear to both of us. I was raised by a single mom, and I owe my godly mom a debt of gratitude I can never repay. My wife was a single mom raising two sons when we met, so she is intimately familiar with the challenges of single parenthood.
Single moms reflect some of the finest attributes of what this country was founded on—virtues such as commitment, sacrifice, loyalty, perseverance and of course, love. These women are an ever-increasing segment of our society and, unfortunately, are often unnoticed, abandoned or neglected in our communities. But from my experience, these moms are hidden jewels in our culture—hidden among a fragmented society and separated by socio-economic, educational, religious, geographic and age differences.
One of Arise’s greatest challenges is making an initial connection with single moms. Arise is addressing this challenge in three primary ways: 1) via technology: web presence, social media interaction, online Bible studies, blogs and podcasts, 2) through the personal influences and relationships of our board members—an intentionally diverse group of men and women who promote awareness across social, ethnic and community lines, and 3) through an annual single moms event currently known as Thrive, which for 15 years we’ve used as a vehicle to encourage and educate single moms in their role as mothers, women of God and heads of their households.
Fundraising is our second major challenge. The past financial successes and faithful financial stewardship of donated funds do not fund the present demands of the ministry. Historically, Arise, an ECFA accredited organization, has primarily raised funds for its operational expenses through the face-to-face efforts of its executive directors. In 2017 we hosted our first major fundraising event. Although the event was a success, a cost-benefit analysis did not support its continuance. In 2018, we hosted a Men’s Breakfast fundraiser, which proved to be considerably more successful and will be continued.
The Arise Board of Directors considers, makes recommendations and approves the activities and goals set for the ministry by its executive directors and ultimately carried out by the staff and volunteers. The dedication to excellence in service in this ministry is unmatched by any other ministry of which I have been a part.
The success of this ministry is exemplified by an encounter I had with a single mom at the end of Thrive 2019. A young single mom told me she had lost her belief in herself and her hope in the Lord. She felt she was a failure for her kids. But post-conference she cried tears of joy and smiled from ear-to-ear as she expressed her appreciation for how God had used this ministry and Thrive to restore her hope, lift her out of depression and re-ignite her faith. She left with a renewed sense of purpose and a passion for honoring God as she faced the daily challenges of single motherhood. Hers is just one of many stories showing the impact of Arise. And although Arise targets single moms, their children are impacted positively as well.

  • Evaluations by attendees
Second, to measure the ongoing impact, every two years we survey women to gather responses as to how their interaction with Arise Ministries changed their homes.
Third, a demonstration of our success includes the number of moms who return to attend our annual Thrive Conference and Jingle Jangle holiday event. Their continued participation year after year indicates they are receiving valuable resources.
Fourth, we know we are making a difference because our church partners who bring groups of women to our conferences share results with us.

Here are some comments from our church partners who brought groups of women to Thrive:
This is our second year to attend one of your programs and we've seen tremendous growth in our single moms. This event gives them encouragement and a needed boost! (Melinda Loftis - Parkview Baptist, Tulsa)
Our single moms look forward to coming to Thrive as a vacation get-a-way! It's tradition. We always discuss what we've learned on the bus ride home. (Linette Garcia - Cross Church – Rogers, AR)
The single mothers' group at our church has attended this event for many years despite busy schedules and the four-hour drive. Our church leadership feels what our moms receive far outweighs the effort: hearts are healed and lives are changed. (Karen Laverty- First Baptist Church – Perryton, Texas)
Description Every November Arise Ministries hosts an evening event called Jingle Jangle to provide holiday encouragement for single moms. We offer practical tips and spiritual insight as single moms prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas, one of the most difficult times of year for them. Women leave empowered with a new perspective in how to embrace the season with joy and peace.

I’ve learned to be a better "model" to my children. It's not what I say but what I do they will remember.
I have finally forgiven myself and let go of my guilt.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Reaching out to single mothers creates both a challenge in finding them and an opportunity to helping them. The “disheartening opportunity” ahead for us is that according to U.S. Census Bureau, single moms are one of the fastest growing segments of our population. With almost 1/3 of the homes in America being occupied by a single parent, the mission field lays wide open for people to come alongside women raising children alone. These moms encompass the silent movement in America of single women raising our next generation, while facing the overwhelming task of establishing a life of stability for themselves and the children. Statistics regarding single moms and their children are alarming.
  • Single moms comprise 29% of American households
  • Two-thirds of the women in Oklahoma prisons are single mothers
  • Single women head nearly half of all poor families
  • Oklahoma has the 8th highest rate of teen pregnancy in the nation
  • Fatherless homes account for 63% of youth suicides, 90% of homeless/runaway children, 85% of children with behavior problems, 71% of high school dropouts, 85% of youths in prison, and well over 50% of teen mothers
Single moms live multi-faceted roles as cook, disciplinarian, taxi-cab driver, homework monitor, plate spinner, and much more! Overcoming the wounds of domestic violence, financial shortage, and the children’s own heartache serve as monstrous challenges in their day-to-day survival. It’s a fact: little to no money, no help, and often no hope in sight serve as their battle cry.
So, our challenge lies in providing resources to meet all of their needs, and discovering unique ways to spread the word to more single moms so they are informed of our events and programs.

One of the unique opportunities in a nonprofit organization is to partner with community leaders who serve on the Board of Directors. By bringing their diverse skills to the team, they help govern and grow the ministry from their perspective. We love bringing new members to the table and serving with them. On the other hand, it is a continual challenge to discover individuals with a passion for our mission willing to serve. It’s a perpetual process that causes us to be vigilant in seeking community leaders who would be a great fit for our Board and who will govern well and help implement procedures and policies.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Every nonprofit experience the same challenges revolving around fundraising in order to acquire enough funds to sustain the organization and support its programs and goals. It is a continual process to increase the sphere of influence and gain new donors as well as retain the current donor base. We are persistent and creative in our fundraising efforts through direct mail pieces, in-person meetings, and a yearly men’s fundraising breakfast. Arise Ministries excels at sustaining our current donors through newsletters, hand written thank you notes, program updates, and thank you phone calls.
The opportunities reside in the fact that we have an incredible and successful organization with sustainable programs and life-changing outcomes that many would love to support. We have a dedicated Board of Directors who are involved in our financial governance and spearhead our fundraising event.
