The Pregnancy Care Center Board of Directors proudly announces Kirk Walden as the 2013 Celebrate Life Banquet keynote speaker.
Walden is a former pregnancy center director and founder of LifeTrends, a company serving more than 1,100 life-affirming ministries in the United States and throughout the world. The Celebrate Life Banquet will be held at Englewood Baptist Church at 7 p.m. Feb. 21.
“Kirk has a challenging and unique perspective on the future of pregnancy centers,” said Kay F. Gurganus, PCC Executive Director. “An evening with Kirk is a journey filled with laughter, challenge, vision and hope – a night you will remember for years to come.”
Walden’s journey to pregnancy care ministry leads through life as a sports writer, professional golfer and nine years as a single dad. He also is a writer whose perspective and devotionals have appeared in publications across the nation and on the website of Focus on the Family.
“If you are ready to create a true culture of life in America,” Gurganus said. “Walden brings a powerful perspective on how the battle will be won in this generation. In addition, be prepared for a surprising view on the true impact of pregnancy resource ministries all over the country.”
