The Case for Life
Persuasively Communicating the Pro-Life Message
Mayer Lutheran will be hosting Mike Spencer, a nationally known pro-life speaker and the Midwest Director of Training for the Life Training Institute, on Monday, November 4. He will lead a workshop that assists people in being able to speak the pro-life position, while sharing the redemptive message of God’s love and forgiveness through Christ. The workshop will be held in the Mayer Lutheran Fine Arts Center from 6:30-8:00 PM. Admission is free. We hope you can join us. Mike grew up in Detroit and considered himself “pro-choice” until shortly after coming to faith in Christ in 1984, when the church he attended showed the pro-life film, The Silent Scream. Upon being confronted with the reality of abortion, Mike became deeply convicted and prayed for God’s forgiveness, offering himself as a voice for the unborn. Mike served as a pastor for 23 years before joining the staff of Life Training Institute in 2012, where he serves as the Midwest Director of Training. Mike has a burden to awaken the church to the plight of mothers facing unplanned pregnancies and to the little ones they carry. He travels extensively throughout the United States speaking as the keynote at banquets and conferences and addresses thousands of students each year on high school and university campuses. Mike is a gifted and much sought-after communicator who brings a pastor’s heart to the often emotional and divisive issue of abortion in a way that is both gracious and compelling. He and his wife, Barb, have five children and five grandchildren. Mike and his family currently reside in Celina, Ohio.
About the Workshop
The Christian worldview has something important to say about every facet of life. Using science and philosophy, this workshop will equip you to answer two basic, but crucial questions in the battle for life: “What are the preborn?” & “What makes humans valuable?” Being prepared to answer these two questions will help you simplify the abortion debate and stay focused on the main issue. Come and learn to speak intelligently and winsomely to the defining moral issue of our times.
