Pro-life Training and Persuasion

The purpose of this section is to give you an overview of the in-depth pro-life training you'll recieve by joining LifeMinded.org. This training relies heavily on materials prepared by Gregory Koukl and Scott Klusendorf, entitled "Making Abortion Unthinkable: the Art of Pro-life Persuasion." "Making Abortion Unthinkable" is one of the finest pro-life training tools available because it is easy-to-follow, careful, well-reasoned instruction that has everything you need to master the art of pro-life persuasion. Though the information may be a little challenging at first, we’re confident you’ll not only learn this material, but you can master it so well you could teach someone else; faithful participation is all that’s needed.

The key to learning is in the nature of this training experience. This material allows you to proceed at a moderate pace with many opportunities for reflection, recall, small group interaction, and other meaningful exercises that help you master one segment at a time. We’ll take you from start to finish in your basic training, guiding you through the material step by step.
