Meet Paul and
the great moral, spiritual, and ethical issues of our day, Paul
Lagan is well suited for the task at hand. In 1989, he and his
wife Sue, founded Alliance for Life Ministries (AFLM), a conservative
Christian ministry located in Madison, Wisconsin, which is arguably
the most liberal city in the United States. Their ministry is
geared toward making a difference by taking God’s Word
and applying it to His Cultural Mandate.
makes their ministry particularly unique is that they have actually
done what most other conservative organizations only suggest.
In this respect they stand alone among the masses of other well
intentioned authorities on the subject. The fact that they are
actively on the front lines of the battle gives them a unique
credibility that few have and qualifies them to advise, direct,
and complete what other writers on the subject may suggest but
and Sue have prayed and rescued at abortion mills, and publicly
(eyeball to eyeball) confronted atheists, sodomites, liberal
school boards, apathetic churches, and city councils. They have
distributed literature door-to-door, organized “Life Chains,”
aired numerous television and newspaper advertisements, and
evangelized at shopping malls, in nursing homes and at prisons.
As an example, during one such campaign, they organized 900
volunteers who, within two hours, delivered literature to over
100,000 homes in Madison, Wisconsin. They have organized “Life
Chains” that stretched for more than 6 miles in length
and consisted of participants from 150 area churches.
Lagans have organized conferences, seminars, and rallies. Concerning
a remedy for defending our Christian heritage and numerous other
controversial issues, they have never asked anyone to do anything
that they have not done, or are not willing to do themselves.
examples are noted not to be condescending, but to encourage
others as to what can be done to change society for the better
with as few as one or two people.
- In 1999, they received
the prestigious Salt and Light Award from The Center for Reclaiming
America for Christ, as the Outstanding Christian Organization
in the United States.
- Concerning many issues,
and from among many millions of Web sites, AFLM is blessed
to be listed on the first page of Google, Yahoo, and many
other search engines.
- Paul and Sue have
appeared as keynote and guest speakers before functions across
the United States, including the National Press Club in Washington,
- The Lagans have been
interviewed numerous times on television and radio, and in
newspapers and national magazines.
- Statements written
and articles published by Paul have received recognition both
here and abroad.
- Paul writes a monthly
column for the Wisconsin
- At one time Paul
and Sue were president and vice-president respectively of
Dane County Wisconsin Right to Life.
In the past, the Lagans
have worked directly with such organizations as:
- American Family Association
- Alliance Defense
- Coral Ridge Ministries
- Exodus International
- Faith 2 Action
- Focus on the Family
- Life Chain America
- Life Dynamics
- Mayflower Institute
- Priests for Life
- Reclaiming America
- Stop (STOPP) Planned
Some other uncommon
features of their organization are that they pay no rent or
overhead, nor do they beg for money. One hundred percent of
all donations to their group are used for the purpose to which
they were given. AFLM will not accept contributions from anyone
who could keep the Lagans from addressing the great evils of
our day, therefore, they are able to tell it as it is with no
strings attached. The Lagans do not make a living by playing
church. They have never received any form of salary, wages,
benefits, or financial reimbursements for their ministry efforts.
Before retiring, Sue was a department supervisor for the Registrar’s
Office at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Paul was self-employed
as the founder and owner of Union Financial Services, an estate
and financial planning organization that operated primarily
within the Midwest. After the sale of his business in 2002,
Paul became free to devote 100 percent of his time to ministry
