Faith Lutheran Church will host the 2016 North Texas Free Conference on Friday, January 22 and Saturday, January 23 at Faith Lutheran Church in Plano, Texas. The conference, themed “Every Life Has Value,” will feature three guest speakers – Rev. Dr. Peter Scaer, Mike Spencer and Scott Klusendorf - discussing a variety of topics including the Bible, marriage, life, abortion and more.
“Every life has value because every life is created by God. Every life has value because Jesus died for all,” said Rev. James Woelmer, Senior Pastor of Faith Lutheran Church. “We are living in a spiritual warfare against life, marriage and religious freedom. We are living in a culture of death, yet Jesus overcame death and the devil by rising from the dead. The Gospel offers peace and strength. May God equip us to defend those who cannot speak for themselves. May we become lights in a dark world.”
Rev. Dr. Peter Scaer has served as professor at Concordia Theological Seminary since 2000. He graduated from Indiana University Bloomington (B.A. 1988), from Concordia Theological Seminary (M.Div. 1992) and from Notre Dame (M.A. 1995 and Ph.D. 2001). He served as the pastor of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Arcadia, Indiana from 1996-2000. In addition to his book on the Gospel of Luke, he has published numerous articles. He is active in Allen County Right-to-Life and in Shepherds United which defends innocent life, traditional marriage and religious liberty.
Mike Spencer served as a pastor for 23 years before joining the staff of Life Training Institute in 2012. He travels extensively throughout the United States equipping pro-lifers on high school and university campuses, in churches and serving as the keynote at prolife banquets and conferences. Mike is a stage 4 cancer survivor and is deeply grateful for God’s merciful healing.
Scott Klusendorf is the founder and president of Life Training Institute which challenges and equips pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views in the public square. Scott has appeared on nationally-syndicated Christian programs and in secular talk show appearances and in more than 80 debates at college and university campuses.
