Why a Director of Mission Formation?
The complexity of abortion demands a dynamic response. The prevalent,
personal tragedy of abortion demands a relational response. The hostility
against a culture of life demands both education and leadership
formation. Dynamic, relational Pro-Life Missionaries transform students to
change culture and save lives through teaching, serving, and leading on


We envision college campuses and Midwest communities to be centers for a culture of life where people treat life with love, new life is welcomed with joy, and people suffering from abortion are led to healing hope.
