SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER:
Pastor Christopher Brooks
For Pastor Christopher Brooks, it's important that prolife people be in two places at once—talking about both the life of the unborn child and alternatives for women facing untimely pregnancies. As the senior pastor at Evangel Ministries, a 1,500-member church in Detroit, he encourages his church members to put their faith into practice.
Pastor Brooks hosts a radio program called Equipped for Life which airs daily on Salem Communications-Detroit Affiliate where he often explores the effects of abortion on men, women, families and the community. Since 2011, he has been a featured speaker in the annual Right to Life of Michigan Black History Month Life Speaker Series reaching out with the message of life, hope, healing and forgiveness.
Pastor Brooks holds a B.A. in Finance from Michigan State University, a M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is also a graduate of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics at Oxford University. Presently he is pursuing a doctoral degree at Oxford Graduate School.
Christopher is the founder of the Detroit Bible Institute, a seminary preparatory institution focusing on inner city Christians. In 2009, Christopher published his first book, Kingdom Dreaming.
Pastor Brooks and his wife, Yodit, are the proud parents of Christopher, Zewditu and Cameron and live near Detroit.
