Sydna Massé, chief executive officer and founder of Ramah Ministries, will be the guest speaker for Hannah Pregnancy Resource Center’s annual fundraising banquet to begin at 6:30 p.m. today at College Avenue Church of Christ, 1817 N. College Ave., El Dorado. Seating will begin at 6:15 p.m. today.
Massé is internationally known for her initial work with Dr. James C. Dobson as Focus on the Family’s manager of Crisis Pregnancy Ministries (1991-1998). Ramah International is a post-abortion outreach and training organization (www.ramahinternational.org).
Massé experienced an abortion as a teenager while attending a private Christian college. She was one of the first post-abortive women to share her abortion journey publicly on the Focus on the Family broadcast (1992).
Over the last 25 years, she has likely heard more post-abortive testimonies than anyone else living in our world today and is one of the few experts on abortion related pain, according to her website. She is a nationally recognized leader in the pro-life movement and can relate her experiences to various audiences, representing and educating on the post-abortive perspective.
She is author of the book, “Her Choice to Heal: Finding Spiritual and Emotional Peace after Abortion” and is creator of one of the few abortion recovery programs relating abortion’s pain and God’s healing. She has been the guest speaker at hundreds of pregnancy center banquets.
Through Ramah International’s seminars, she trains an average of 1,000 pregnancy centers and church leaders every year in being more effective with the abortion-vulnerable, particularly those who have already experienced abortion. Her method of delivery includes real stories and examples and helping attendees minister more effectively to those considering abortion (www.pregnancycentertraining.com).
She has a bachelor’s of arts degree in communications from Michigan State University. She has been married to Tom Massé since 1986, and they have three adult sons – Bruce, Michael and Daniel. They currently reside in Fayetteville.
