Sound the Call 2020
One Day Virtual Conference

October 15, 2020
8:30 am to 4:00 pm

Tickets: $50 per person for churches, centers, clinics and Pastors.
Pastor’s/Minister’s wives are FREE.

The Sound the Call conference was established in 2000. This statewide conference was designed for staff and volunteer advocates of Pregnancy Care Centers/Clinics and other life affirming ministries.   Our purpose is to equip, encourage, and to challenge the church and pregnancy care ministries who are on the front lines in this life saving work.   We also provide training and supply expert resources to pregnancy centers/clinics.

This year the Sound the Call conference will be a one-day virtual conference.

Sessions will include a special emphasis on the Pregnancy Care Ministry, the Church and the Sanctity of Human Life.

INVITATION FROM MARY LOU

Every year our committee prays and plans for our Sanctity of Human Life annual conference, Sound the Call.  This will be our very first One Day Virtual Conference BUT we will be together again “In His Presence” yet in a very unique way. You will be encouraged and challenged through the Worship Celebrations and Joint Sessions. This will be a day of refreshing and renewal.

  • Unique Worship Celebrations
  • Inspired Pastors and Special Guest
  • Joint Training Sessions
  • Legal Updates
  • And much more!

God’s distinct call to us in Pregnancy Care Centers/Clinics and Life Ministry is to share the great Message of His design and purpose with each one of our clients and their families.

It is our joy to invite you to Sound the Call 2020.  You will be blessed by our Conference Pastors; Arnold Culbreath, Andy Merritt, Jason Pettus, Charles Roesel, and many more. And we are thankful to welcome back worship leaders, the Jason Lovins Band.

We are praying and believing for an unexplainable encounter with our Heavenly Father that can only be experienced “In His Presence”!

“You will make known to me the path of LIFE; In Your Presence is fullness and joy: in Your right hand there are pleasures forever”.

Psalm 16:11

WORSHIP: JASON LOVINS BAND

Jason Lovins, leader and founder of The Jason Lovins Band, eclipses the word candid. He has turned his life’s beginnings into a stirring testimony, even though the negativity of it could have turned him towards seclusion, bitterness, or to be silent altogether.  You see, Jason’s mother was raped when she was 15-years-old and Jason is the baby she carried full-term after the incident.

Jason was born into a Christian family where abortion is not an option, no matter what the circumstances.  When it became evident that his mother, Lisa, was pregnant the first thing his grandma and mother did was go to church to pray about it.  The answer was clear that this baby was to have life and to live it in glory to the Lord.

CONFERENCE PASTORS

Andy’s passion when he came to Edgewood in 1977 was for God to be faithful to fulfill three callings God placed on his life. First, to love his wife Kathy and raise a large family to impact the world for Christ. Second, to lead the Edgewood family to learn, love, & live God’s Word in order for Christ to be displayed through us. Third, to magnify God by rescuing babies from abortion to discover their God-given destinies, and reaching their parents with the gospel of Christ.

WORKSHOP 1:
LEGAL UPDATE
The most fundamental right of a person, at any stage, is life itself. We as human beings are God’s image-bearers, as He declares in the very first book of Bible. As such, every human life brings glory to God. The battle regarding the Sanctity of Human Life for the unborn and beyond are reaching new levels. This session will be an interactive interview with Attorney David Gibbs III addressing these concerns. You will leave this session with a renewed perspective of life and hope for the future.

WORKSHOP 2:
MINISTERING TO MEN IN THE PROLIFE MOVEMENT
This workshop will help you recognize the significance of the man in an unplanned pregnancy who we have often overlooked, as the father of that unborn child. Though society may deem him as irrelevant, he often yields considerable influence on the woman’s decision in giving life to the child. Have you ever thought why are there not more men involved in the fight for the life of unborn children and speaking out against the scourge of abortion in our nation? This workshop will help us to consider the importance of intentionally ministering to men in the Pro-Life movement.

WORKSHOP 3:
OPTION OF ADOPTION
It is not our responsibility to tell our clients what to do, however it is our responsibility to present all three of their options, and to be honest about the difficulties of each one. Adoption has become a forgotten option. Join us to hear the adoption story of a courageous birth mother, to learn how adoption has changed and how you can be an intentional voice for the Option of Adoption to your client and community.

WORKSHOP 4:
THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL
You will be encouraged to understand and appreciate the sufficiency and supremacy of God’s Word as it relates to the center and the pro-life movement. As Christians our complete confidence is in Christ. He works freely through the power of the Holy Spirit and prayer, in the lives of the counselors, and the clients in the center. It is in this way He accomplishes His intended Gospel task in addressing such moral issues as abortion and the spreading of His Kingdom. There is no greater hope we can bring to our centers and the pro-life movement than the LIVING HOPE of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
