I’m the type of person who loves getting to see “behind the scenes.”

How does the magic happen?  What is the process really like? 

That’s why I was so grateful to join hundreds of Orange County listeners, and several from the Ambassador team, for a recent live recording of a “Focus on the Family” broadcast.  This live event kicked-off a five-city tour (in five days!) that began in California and then headed to Dallas, Tampa, Atlanta and finally finishing in Chicago.

Joni Eareckson Tada was the special broadcast guest we saw on that evening.  Later in the week, local listeners heard from Steve Arterburn, Emily Colson, Al & Lisa Robertson, and Scott Klusendorf.

These recordings will become ten broadcasts your listeners will hear in 2020.  Each message will clearly share a strong pro-life message.  Having personally witnessed the audience response at one of these live recordings, I know that these powerful programs will touch many and challenge people to get involved in the cause for life.  And that’s the goal — because Focus on the Family has recently announced an event they want to be sure all of your listeners know about:  ALIVE 2020.

From Jim Daly:

In May of 2020, Focus on the Family will be hosting one of the largest pro-life events in our 43-year history.

We’re calling it ALIVE 2020 and we’re going to be simultaneously celebrating life in 5 new cities with award-winning musical artists, inspiring speakers and – of course, the star of the show – live ultrasounds of third-trimester babies.

ALIVE 2020 will be in Southern California, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and South Florida. The events will also be streamed online so even if you can’t make it to one in person, you can still participate.

So, please save the date – Saturday May 9th 2020 – the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend.

Alive 2020 will build upon the tremendous success of “Alive from New York,” which saw over 20,000 people attend the largest pro-life event in New York City’s history. The event featured speeches from pro-life warriors Alveda King, Benjamin Watson, Ashley Bratcher and Abby Johnson. During the keynote moment, a live 4D ultrasound in Times Square, protestors, moved by hearing and seeing the preborn baby’s heartbeat and face, dropped their signs and fell silent – left speechless by the miracle of life.

Alive from New York, however, was just the beginning. Building on the momentum of the NYC historic event, Focus on the Family promises to extend its reach this coming May.

Alive from New York was life changing for those who were able to attend – lives and minds were changed that day. Alive 2020 will be even more impactful, taking place in five major cities. We can’t wait for tens of thousands of people to join us on May 9th 2020 and see life clearly.

Please join us in praying for the event, won’t you?
