“Become a voice for voiceless victims of abortion,” is what Anthony Jordan wanted to do when he was pastor of Northwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. Then, the Child Care Department offered referral services to unwed pregnant women and a telephone hotline for crisis pregnancies. God put a more personal and proactive approach in the hearts of Jordan and other men and women in the Oklahoma Baptist community.

In 1985, Jordan asked Lowell Milburn to consider establishing a Crisis Pregnancy Center where women could receive pregnancy tests and counseling from a volunteer staff. Milburn caught the vision and action was taken. On April 27, 1986, the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Oklahoma City was dedicated.

Soon after, Baptists in Tulsa assisted the Convention in opening a center there. Both centers offer free pregnancy testing, confidential counseling, and assistance in obtaining medical services, abortion education, post-abortion counseling, and childbirth education.

The ministry of the two Crisis Pregnancy Centers in Oklahoma is dear to Jordan’s heart. With other Baptists, Jordan and wife, Polla, share a passion for the sanctity of life. The Jordans have two adopted children.
