What does it look like for a body of believers to be pro-life…together? How can a church be pro-life, not just in word and name, but in deeds and actual service? Creating a pro-life culture within a congregation requires intentionality and teamwork. It’s done from the pulpit and it’s done from the pew. Listen in as Pastor Kirk Neugebauer joins his wife (our host Steph) to talk about some very practical ways that you can help create a culture of LIFE that reach both within and beyond the four walls of your own church.

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of that life when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life Ministry, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people, ones who are speaking up for and living out the sanctity of human life. Together we’ll explore life issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
