We are in awe of all that God is doing in and through Vida and the lives of those we serve. We invite you to this year’s Together for Life Fundraising Banquet to celebrate the incredible work being done by this life affirming ministry! Together for Life, an annual spring fundraising banquet, brings together friends of Vida for an evening of celebration, recognition, and support for Vida. The evening features a prayer service, social hour, dinner, speakers, and highlights from the organization.

Prayer Service - 5:00 p.m.

Bishop David Ricken, from the Diocese of Green Bay, will offer this year’s spiritual reflection. Bishop Ricken is a member of the U.S. Conference of the Catholic Bishops and presently serves on the Pro-Life and Evangelization and Catechesis committees. 

Our Together for Life Prayer Service is a wonderful opportunity for pastors to gather, pray, and offer thanksgiving for the opportunity to serve alongside one another in this life affirming ministry. All clergy will be welcome to step forward at the end of the service to pray over staff members, and for the men, women, and children being served by this ministry. Last year’s attendees had this to say, “I truly felt the presence of the Holy Spirit as I was prayed over…” and, “I was moved to tears by the power of God I felt during the prayer service.” 

Bishop David Ricken

Dinner and Banquet - 6:30 p.m.

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. David C. Forbes, a founder and pastor of Columbus Christian Center Church and Ever-Increasing Life Ministries. Dr. Forbes’s authenticity, wisdom, candor, and practicality are unashamedly Christian, unreservedly life-affirming, and undeniably inspirational in this mission field. Vida staff members had the great pleasure of hearing him speak at last year’s Heartbeat International Conference and are excited to welcome Dr. Forbes to Appleton.
