Millions of Christian students are ill-equipped to stand for life. We're on a mission to change that. Life Training Institute equips Christians to make a persuasive case for life. The primary way we fulfill our mission is to make pro-life apologetics presentations in Catholic and Protestant high schools, universities, and worldview conferences. We also help pregnancy resource centers with banquet speaking so they can reach those most at risk for abortion, students 15-24. Our presentations are featured on nationally syndicated programs like Focus on the Family, Truths that Transform, Ava Maria Radio, and Issues, Etc.-to name a few.

Life Training Institute (LTI) exists for one purpose: to empower others with the knowledge and conviction necessary to make a case for life that changes hearts and minds. We've trained thousands over the years to make a case for life based on science and philosophy, and they're equipped to do it in one-minute or less.

Mission statement

Life Training Institute trains Christians and pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views in the marketplace of ideas by clearly presenting the pro-life position in live events and through the full use of modern media.

Though our arguments are rooted in science and philosophy, the gospel of Jesus Christ is central to our presentations and our goals as it is the means by which the suffering, guilt, and division caused by this issue are healed and people are restored.
