A night with author Kirk Walden is an evening filled with humor, challenge, vision and hope.
Your audience will be laughing with Kirk as he shares his true-life stories, and moved as he powerfully connects those stories with your ministry. Kirk is unique in his ability to blend laughter and poignant moments—it’s a night your audience will remember for years to come.
Most important, your attendees will be stirred to action by Kirk’s vision of the pivotal role pregnancy care ministries play in creating a culture of life in America.
Kirk’s book, The Wall, is now one of the best-selling pro-life books available today. His powerful plan that can end abortion as we know it is succinct, simple—and surprisingly possible.
In addition, Kirk’s Friday columns at www.pregnancyhelpnews.com, the #1 web site for pregnancy help ministries and organizations, encourage and exhort pro-life leaders around the world.
As a one-time pregnancy help center director, Kirk takes your audience inside your ministry and gives them a perfect picture of why—and how—to support your work. And for the men in your audience, Kirk is a great fit--a one-time professional golfer and a former member of a college football broadcast team.
Oh, and did we mention that Kirk is one of our ministry’s strongest fundraisers? In 2015 alone, he assisted centers in raising $3.4 million, bringing his total to more than $25 million.

And, his personal attention to the needs of our Center by meeting with us beforehand and being available afterward is unmatched!"
"Kirk really speaks from the heart. Many of our donors commented on his sincerity and his willingness to share some very personal stories. He is funny and knows how to relate to his audience. Kirk gave a lot of encouragement and hope to people that we could see an end to abortion. He was inspiring, passionate, and fabulous! Many walked away saying, 'We CAN do this!'"

“I wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with Kirk as our banquet speaker this year. Our giving total was the highest it has ever been in our 9 year history! In spite of some problems with the facility that caused dinner to go long and cost us valuable time on our presentation, Kirk has continued to receive rave reviews from our guests and the overall response from this banquet has been phenomenal. Kirk continues to be No. 1 in our book!”
“Kirk's personalized his presentation to our reflect our clinic and our needs to our donors. He referred to things said by others earlier in the program, showing just how engaged and in tune he was to us! He also adjusted his presentation to make sure we ended on time. His humor and genuine spirit make him a hit with our audiences.”
“We broke a fundraising record. Everyone raved about Kirk’s message, his story, his humor, and his sincere interest in Robbinsdale Women’s Center. I recommend him highly to other PMC’s without reservation! We’ve been doing fundraising dinners for almost 25 years, and Kirk is truly among the best we’ve had!”
