Speakers Include:

  • Rev. Michael Salemink, LFL Executive Director - "A Sixty-Seven-Cent Check Saved My Life" - In 1974, a sixteen-year-old Iowa farm girl's surprise pregnancy threatens to ruin lives. Roe v. Wade made abortion available just one year earlier for situations like this. But Planned Parenthood was no match for Zion Lutheran Church. The courage and compassion of plain saints patiently serving according to their various vocations cultivate a forty-five-year marriage, three children, twelve grandkids, two pastors, a soldier, and a whole lot of Gospel-motivated Lutheranism. Listen and learn how God's using you to do the same! 

  • Rev. Scott Licht, LFL National Director - "Four Little Words" - "In this session, we will explore how four little words can be both the most deadly and the most joyful at the same time."

  • Rev. Evan McClanahan, Pastor of Pastor of First Evangelical Lutheran Church, Houston, Texas - "Abortion and Social Justice" - This talk will look at the way abortion is neglected in our current conversations regarding social justice, and it will make the case for its inclusion. Indeed, "social justice” is proven to be a lie if the very basic right to life is not protected. We will examine some of the common social justice claims (LGBT issues, racism, economic injustices) and compare them in light of abortion. In the end, my hope is to encourage generally conservative people not to avoid “social justice” conversations, but to engage them and bring up abortion as the primary injustice in our land today.

  • Dr. Sheila Page, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, President of the Texas Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, Member of LFL Board of Directors - "Can They Really Make You Do That? The Clash Between Corporate Medicine and Individual Right of Conscience" - Corporate practice of medicine has been illegal in the United States until the recent passage of the ACA. The reason it has been guarded for so long is simple: an employed physician will have a natural conflict of interest between the best interests of the patient and the demands of the employer. An employer can threaten the reputation, livelihood, and financial stability of a licensed professional. An administrator typically has no personal attachment to the patient, and is focused on the financial needs of the hospital. A physician caring for the patient often must weigh the cost between the demands of the administrator or third party payer and the best interest of the patient.

  • Pastor David Eibel, Sr. Pastor, Living Word Lutheran Church, Grapevine TX (Devotional Leader & Conference Chaplain)
