The seminar is on Livestream.
I want to thank everyone who participated in IMPACT on Saturday, May 29th. I especially want to thank RESOUND Mission Base and their directors, Larry and Leah Ramirez who hosted it.
In the past, when we have held these meetings (Pro-life Unity, Florida Pro-life Network, Pro-life Council, etc.) we have usually had about 20 to 30 people. This was just a little larger, so we are making progress. We had 14 speakers, about 15 more people from RESOUND and friends of speakers. Then there were about four or five people who had never been involved in pro-life ministry before who were visibly touched and made connections with the ministries represented at the seminar. Obviously, I wish we had 10 times as many people in the latter group. I think we can recreate this much better in three to six months. My idea would be to do better promotion, to attach it to an activist event (either an event at the abortion clinics, Stand4Life, a showing of Maafa21, etc.) to bring in two or more nationally known speakers and to include more local pastors.
These were the program topics and speakers:
- The Third Time Around – Jay Rogers
- Activating Churches and Political Activism – Glen DeJong
- The Pro-life Movement in Melbourne – Pat McEwen
- Sanctuary Ministries in Orlando – John Barros
- March in Tallahassee, Media and Internet – Fred Salivia
- Personhood Now – Josh Craddock and team
- Stand4Life and China Mission – Leah Ramirez
- Maafa 21 – Nixx Hawkins
- Bound4Life – Madie Celano
- Pro-life Action Ministries – Cody Duncan
- Adopt the Mills – Kathleen Kane
- Center for Bio-Ethical Reform – Michael Schrimsher
Everything went better than I expected considering we were up against a lot of conflicting schedules and a holiday weekend. I was personally encouraged to see together in one place several old warriors who have been at this for over 20 years with many new people who have excitement and energy.
Some common themes of the seminar that came to me:
- The pro-life movement is not a political or social issue, but a spiritual war between the Church and Satan – the seed of the woman and the serpent.
- We must repent of division, support each other and get to know each other better.
- There is a new wave of pro-life activism coming and we need to be prepared to train new activists.
- We need to mobilize churches to “adopt” an abortion mill in every region of Florida.
- We cannot let frustration or opposition stop us from pressing on.
- We are a “remnant” movement, but we are destined to win.
We’d like to do this again. Please leave a message or contact me if you have any thoughts.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Special Two-Disc Set!
After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
Welcome to the Second American Revolution!
This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.
