LANSDOWNE, Va., (christiansunite.com) -- Care Net is pleased to announce that Rev. Dean Nelson has been appointed Vice President of Underserved Outreach to spearhead the organization's efforts to develop pregnancy centers in urban communities nationwide. With decades of experience in ministry, grassroots mobilization, and equipping urban leaders, Rev. Nelson will focus on recruiting and equipping African American pastors to open pregnancy centers in urban areas. With the highest rate of abortions occurring among African American women and the majority of abortion providers clustered in urban neighborhoods, Nelson's work will focus on one of the most strategic projects in the pro-life movement today.

"Care Net is blessed to have Dean join our team. He has extensive national experience in mobilizing leaders in the African American community and a long track record of success in launching faith-based outreach programs," said Care Net President Melinda Delahoyde. "Dean is an important addition to the Care Net staff as we continue to fulfill a mission to provide life-affirming alternatives to abortion in underserved communities. With his help, I am confident our outreach efforts will be expanded and new urban pregnancy centers opening across our nation will become a reality."

Rev. Nelson is passionately committed to promoting a culture of life and developing leadership training opportunities for African Americans and other minorities. In his prior role as executive director of Network of Politically Active Christians (NPAC) and as vice-chairman for the Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF), he helped to inform, teach, and train hundreds of faith leaders how to effectively communicate and defend life-affirming policies.

Rev. Nelson also has a broad background in ministry. He has served as the Executive Pastor for Wellington Boone Ministries in Atlanta, GA and is an ordained minister with the Fellowship of International Churches. He also has more than 15 years of experience in campus ministry, formerly serving as the National Director of Global Outreach Campus Ministries, a national ministry focused on spiritual revival on campuses across America. In addition, Dean has helped to plant churches with Wellington Boone Ministries in capital cities, such as Richmond, Virginia, Raleigh, North Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia. For his complete bio, visit the Care Net website.

Care Net is a non-profit, faith-based organization supporting the work of 1,130 pregnancy centers across North America. Learn more at www.care-net.org.
