Kirk Walden, Founder and
President of LifeTrends

You won't want to miss this year's speaker, Kirk Walden! A former pregnancy help center director, Kirk uses his 30 years of experience in the pro-life arena to encourage and equip thousands of pro-life leaders around the world. Kirk is the Founder and President of LifeTrends, a part of the Heartbeat International family of services. He is a senior writer with Pregnancy Help News, an Advancement Specialist with Heartbeat International, and author of The Wall, one of the best-selling pro-life books available today. His powerful plan that can end abortion as we know it is succinct, simple-and surprisingly possible. Drawing from his experiences as a sports writer, one-time professional golfer, and now a father of five, Kirk blends laughter while expertly sharing, in light of our changing culture, how we canwin the battle to defend the unborn and rebuild a true culture of life in America.

Kirk says, "If you are fed up with the status quo, if you are steadfastly determined to be part of writing a new narrative where life prevails, join us. A new culture is within our grasp. The time is now for pregnancy help organizations to become the first choice for those facing unplanned pregnancies. For when we become the first choice, the second choice can-and God-willing will-disappear. Because if those facing the most difficult time of their lives come to us first and choose life, those who make a living ending pregnancies will have no one left to exploit. In two words, 'Life wins.'"

We envision that every person in the greater Miami Valley will experience gospel transformation that empowers them to choose life for their unborn children and God’s design for sexual purity. This new vision from the Governing Board inspired our Gala theme: Empowered by Hope. We place our hope in the transformative work of the gospel alone to empower clients to choose life. Our Board, volunteers, and staff “labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people.”I Timothy 4:10 (NIV)

We prepare annually for two major fundraisers - the Gala in the fall and the Walk 4 Life in the spring - to subsidize an over $1,000,000 operating budget. The Gala fundraiser falls in the first quarter of our fiscal year (October-September), and we depend on this fundraiser to bring in 40% of our operating revenue.
