Featured speaker

A night with Kirk Walden is an evening filled with humor, challenge, vision and hope.

Kirk’s journey into pregnancy help ministry—where he has served for more than 20 years—leads through life as a sports writer, professional golfer, and even nine years as a single dad.

Kirk is also author of The Wall, a book sweeping through the pro-life community with a powerful message—outlining a path to ending abortion as we know it in the next decade. His blog is found at

In addition to his speaking and writing, Kirk serves as the Ministry Advancement Specialist for Heartbeat International, the world’s largest affiliate organization for the pregnancy help community.

When you hear Kirk, leave the challenges of the day behind and get ready to laugh with a speaker with whom everyone can identify.

In addition, be prepared for a surprising view on the true impact of pregnancy help ministries all over the country. If you are ready to create a true culture of life in America—Kirk brings a powerful perspective on how the battle will be won in this generation.

Kirk lives in Hendersonville, Tennessee—a Nashville suburb—with his wife Jennifer. They have five children, ranging in age from 25 to 5. Now there’s another story waiting to be told!

Host a table or underwrite the event

As a primary source of funding, our annual banquet is critically important to the ministry of Life Matters Worldwide. We can’t do it without you. Please prayerfully consider joining us as a table host, underwriter, or both. 

Table Hosts: Each table seats 10 people. While there’s no cost to attend the banquet, we suggest a minimum donation of $30/person to cover the cost of the dinner and venue. As a table host, you will agree to fill those seats by inviting guests to attend the banquet. 

As you invite guests, please consider MC². M = Motivation. C = Capacity. Who, in your sphere of influence, are the motivated individuals with a passion for the sanctity of human life? Who has the capacity (the means, should the Lord lead) to support Life Matters Worldwide on a monthly, quarterly, or one-time basis?

If you’re ready to make a commitment to join us in our efforts, you can reserve your table(s) now!
