NOTE: Our start time has changed for the camp, compared to previous years. We are now starting at 9am on Friday, instead of in the afternoon. If you're from out of town and need to come to Fort Wayne the day before, please ask us about accommodations! 

Training Educators Mike Spencer, Seth Drayer and Ian Spencer will teach you how to make a persuasive case for life in the marketplace of ideas. They offer engaging content that will impact you and equip you to go forth and defend the pro-life view.

  • THE CASE FOR LIFE #101 with Mike Spencer
    • Designed for first-time attendees, this course will equip you to simplify the abortion debate by focusing on one question: “What are the preborn?” Appealing to the science of human embryology and philosophy, you will be taught to defend the view that life begins at conception and that the differences between the born and preborn (size, level of development, degree of dependency and location) do not change the nature or value of human life.
  • THE CASE FOR LIFE #201 with Seth Drayer
    • The 201 level considers competing notions of human value and serves as
      an intro to advanced abortion v. choice arguments by asking, “Are human valuable because of who they are or because of what they can do?” You will contrast the pro-life position of human value with competing abortion advocate positions as you consider one of the most enduring objections to the pro-life position – bodily autonomy.
  • TACTICS & PRACTICUM with Ian Spencer
    • You know the case for life, but how do we use this in everyday conversation? This track will give you tools to create effective conversations and avoid attempts to shut them down. You’ll learn to start, navigate, and end dialogue in a way that can reach hearts and change minds on abortion.
    • Tactics students will have classroom training on Friday and will spend Saturday morning in a Practicum. The Practicum will be lead by Ian Spencer and his experienced team from Created Equal. Any transportation will be provided by RLNI for the students. Questions can be directed to Phoebe at the below info.
