Founder of Disruptive Truth Launches We Choose Life

Founder of Disruptive Truth Launches We Choose Life
New campaign brings light into the enveloping darkness of the culture of death.

Dallas/Fort Worth – 43 years ago, the battle for the life of the unborn was brought to the forefront in the historic decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. Since that time, pro-life advocates have sought to have the decision overturned and return public opinion from choice to life. According to Dave Sterrett, founder of Disruptive Truth, the battle for the hearts and minds of Christians must be won first if this is to ever become a reality.

“A passive approach to the Christian faith will only result in the Church reflecting the values of the culture in which it exists,” states Sterrett. “We are making an intentional effort to capture the heart and mind of today’s believer with sound instruction and to raise up a people who choose life as a matter of biblical conviction.”

Toward that effort, Sterrett’s organization is launching a new initiative, We Choose Life, in January 2016. The objective is to train and equip 500,000 high school and college students to be able to give an answer to the abortion issue with clarity, compassion and conviction, while offering real answers, real stories and real hope to a new generation.
We Choose Life provides a small group, one-day, training and discussion guide available as a free download and designed for a one-hour gathering.  Short films will include pro-life training and biblical hope from Dave Sterrett, along with true stories from pro-life leaders including Lila Rose, founder ofLive Action.

Sterrett is also the General Editor and contributing author of a companion book, We Choose Life(Hendrickson Publisher, 2016), that will release in January 2016 as well. Proving that in times of tragedy and pain, there is opportunity for great hope and compassion, Sterrett has gathered a collection of compelling stories about the pro-life movement from men and women who have been through the trenches and come out on the other side.
People like Ramona, who found forgiveness after quitting her job at Planned Parenthood; Melissa, who survived a failed abortion attempt and now ministers to others; and Jon, who found mercy and grace after living for years with the guilt of an abortion heavy on his heart. In these powerful, true stories about forgiveness, hope, and passion, readers will see that their stories can also make a difference. We Choose Life brings light into the enveloping darkness of the culture of death.

“The Bible reminds us that in Jesus Christ ‘the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’...Dave Sterrett’ s book, We Choose Life reminds Christians that truth will continue to make significant inroads into the darkness of abortion so long as God’s people continue to stand with principle, compassion and conviction,” states Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family.
