Keynote Speaker: David Bereit
David Bereit is co-founder and former CEO of 40 Days for Life. David launched and led the global 40 Days for Life movement through its first decade, mobilizing 725,000 volunteers in 675 cities across 40 nations.
After Planned Parenthood announced plans to build an abortion clinic in his Texas town in 1998, David resigned from his former lucrative career as a pharmexeutical representative and became an outspoken pro-life advocate. He helped to start and build a local grassroots coalition that rallied 60 churches and thousands of people together and dramatically reduced abortions in the region. Planned Parenthood recognized the effectiveness of David’s efforts when it labeled his town “the most anti-choice place in the nation.” David led the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas.
David moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2005 where he served as executive director of American Life League and national director of Stop Planned Parenthood until being asked to lead the worldwide 40 Days for Life movement. After stepping away from his work with 40 Days for Life, David has continued to work alongside many of today’s top Christian and pro-life leaders as a consultant helping ministries and pro-life nonprofit organizations achieve unimaginable success in fulfilling their mission.
David is an internationally sought-after keynote speaker, and his presentations in more than 500 cities around the world have inspired audiences as large as 70,000 people. He is the co-author of the #1 top-rated Christian book: 40 Days for Life: Discover What God Has Done, Imagine What He Can Do. His work has been featured in nearly every major media outlet, including coverage on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, HBO, hundreds of radio programs, and over 100 newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today.
He is married to his best friend, Margaret, and is the proud father of two teenage children, Claire and Patrick.
