Y4Life Lessons

Designed for the high school classroom, these engaging presentations address life issues that are related to various subjects and curriculums. Most often given in English, biology, and theology classrooms, these lessons engage students in a variety of ways and help them make connections between faith and life. For more information on topics or to request a custom-made presentation, contact Michelle Bauman at mbauman@lutheransforlife.org.

Future Church Worker Life Ministry Training

Our Life Ministry Training is designed to help future church workers learn the importance of life ministry and give them ways to address life issues, not only while they are still students but also in their future occupations. These sessions are taught in college classrooms and supplement goals for mission and ministry on Lutheran colleges and university campuses. To schedule a presentation, please contact Michelle Bauman at mbauman@lutheransforlife.org.

Y4Life Servant Events
