With all of the turmoil across our nation concerning abortion and recent legislation passed in New York State, it’s time to equip believers to have grace-filled conversations about these issues. How do we communicate moral truth regarding abortion and sanctity of life?

Join us for a free one-day conference with Scott Klusendorf, President of Life Training Institute and author. Scott will empower our community with the knowledge and conviction necessary to make a case for life that changes hearts and minds. Please note that childcare is not available for this event.

SEATING IS LIMITED AND PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED!  PLEASE HAVE YOUR TICKETS HANDY THE DAY OF THE EVENT.

Pro-life Christians, take heart: the pro-life message can compete in the marketplace of ideas-provided Christians properly understand and articulate that message. Too many Christians do not understand the essential truths of the pro-life position, making it difficult for them to articulate a biblical worldview on issues like abortion, cloning, and embryo research. The Case for Life provides intellectual grounding for the pro-life convictions that most evangelicals hold. Author Scott Klusendorf first simplifies the debate: the sanctity of life is not a morally complex issue. It's not about choice, privacy, or scientific progress. To the contrary, the debate turns on one key question: What is the unborn? From there readers learn how to engage the great bio-tech debate of the twenty-first century, how to answer objections persuasively, and what the role of the pro-life pastor should be. *This book and other resources will be available for purchase at the event.

Scott Klusendorf

Scott Klusendorf travels throughout the United States and Canada training pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views in the public square. He contends that the pro-life message can compete in the marketplace of ideas if properly understood and properly articulated. A passionate and engaging speaker, Scott has appeared on nationally syndicated Christian programs such as Dr. James Dobson’s Focus on the Family, Lee Strobel’s Faith Under Fire, Billy Graham’s Hour of Decision, and Moody Radio’s Prime Time America with David Wheatley. Nationally, Scott has participated in numerous debates at the collegiate level. His debate opponents have included Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU (1991-2008) – Kathryn Kolbert, an attorney that has argued for abortion rights in a United States Supreme Court case – and Kathy Kneer, President of Planned Parenthood of California. Scott has debated or lectured to student groups at over 80 colleges and universities, including Stanford, USC, UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Loyola Marymount Law School, West Virginia Medical School, MIT, U.S. Air Force Academy, Cal-Tech, UC Berkeley, and University of North Carolina. Scott is the author of ``The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture, and co -author of ``Stand for Life``. Scott has also published articles on pro-life apologetics in The Christian Research Journal, Clear Thinking, Focus on the Family Citizen, and The Conservative Theological Journal. Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship, said: “Scott first grabbed my attention when Focus on the Family featured one of his presentations on its national broadcast. I was struck by his ability to communicate truth so clearly and insightfully. I’ve heard many speakers who deliver excellent content, but few who can actually equip people to communicate their pro-life convictions to a secular culture. In fact, I was so impressed with Scott’s talk that I phoned him directly to learn more about his work. After that, I scheduled him as a keynote speaker for our own Breakpoint conference.”
Scott is a graduate of UCLA with honors and holds a Masters Degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University.
