Life Outreach International to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

Life Outreach InternationalIn celebration of 50 years of ministry, LIFE Outreach International will be hosting a conference July 18-20 at Gateway Church in Southlake, TX. 

Speakers at the AWAKEN NOW Conference will include Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dr. Tony Evans, Beth Moore, Robert Morris, Lisa Bevere, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Christine Caine, Andy Andrews and more.

According to the ministry, the purpose of the conference is to encourage and equip the body of Christ to make a difference in the world today.

“The only hope we have for peace, security and the divine enabling necessary to share Christ with a world in darkness is to experience another great spiritual awakening,” says James Robison, who founded LIFE Outreach International with his wife, Betty.

“As children of light we must diligently seek to lead our confused nation and the world out of darkness,” he adds.

In the ministry's 50-year history, LIFE has shared the love of Christ through various ministry outreaches: the LIFE TODAY television ministry, evangelistic outreaches, LIFE Centers, feeding programs, water well drilling, Homes for LIFE, disaster relief and other mission projects.

Currently, LIFE ministers in 50 nations on six continents. Throughout Africa, for example, LIFE helps feed 400,000 children in crisis areas every day, and assists with school feeding programs to encourage school attendance and education. The ministry has also drilled more than 3,400 fresh water wells in 40 nations on five continents.

The LIFE TODAY television ministry, meanwhile, broadcasts to more than 300 million homes around the world, and was named Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters in 2002.

More information about the anniversary conference, as well as LIFE's ministry and mission projects, can be found on the organization's website: www.lifetoday.org.
