What Is IGNITE for Life? IGNITE for Life is an opportunity for all of those who believe in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to come together to pray and stand in public witness for the defense of unborn children in Kansas and throughout the United States. The IGNITE for Life event takes place every year near January 22nd which is the National Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.  We are praying this year specifically for the passage of the Value Them Both Kansas Constitutional Amendment on August 2nd, 2022.

IGNITE will kick off with Praise & Worship music from the band All Things I Am, followed by dynamic messages from pro-life speakers including our keynote speaker, Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life.  We will then celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the Bishops of Kansas along with many Kansas priests.  Finally, all are invited to march to the state capitol to join the Kansans for Life Rally.  Stay tuned for an additional opportunity to join in Eucharistic Adoration at a nearby Catholic Church.

EVENT SPEAKER: Kristan Hawkins

Kristan Hawkins is a Christian, wife, mother, author, speaker, Podcast host and a human rights advocate. President of Students for Life of America, Kristan will share how her faith has inspired her to defend life by building up an organization that serves 1,200+ Students for Life chapters in all fifty states and has trained over 100,000 young people. Under her leadership, Students for Life exists to transform our culture by recruiting, training, and mobilizing this pro-life generation, who are the direct targets of today’s abortion industry. No entity has more mind-changing conversations about abortion, on-campus or online, everyday than Students for Life.  A frequent speaker and media analyst, she has interviewed on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, the Today Show, CBS, ABC, and HBO.

Kristan hosts a weekly podcast “Explicitly Pro-Life” found on iTunes and YouTube.  Her proudest accomplishment is being a wife to her high school sweet heart (Jonathan), raising her four children (Gunner, Bear, Maverick and Gracie), and, in her free time, building awareness for cystic fibrosis, a disease shared by both her son, Gunner, and daughter, Gracie.

Since launching Students for Life, the Pro-Life Generation has been given a voice in Kristan, and with her help, they are using that voice to demand an end to the injustice of abortion as well as support for mothers and their children, born and pre-born.
