A life ministry mobilization area at the Ampitheatre will be manned by area pregnancy centers and organizations, and participants can visit the tables before or after the program. Others scheduled to participate in the program include Sancha Smith, Concerned Women of America; Bishop David Talley, Diocese of Alexandria; Bro. Kevin Cox, Louisiana District of Pentecostals; Ryan Verret and Krista Corbello, Louisiana Right to Life; Mel Gauthier, Lily of the Valley Ministries; Hannah Terrebonne, Louisiana College Students for Life; and the Rev.
