Rev. Dr. Jim Lamb received a B.A. in Biology from Mankato State University in 1973. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, he attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis receiving his Master of Divinity in 1982 and his Doctor of Ministry in 1994. Dr. Lamb served as senior pastor at St. Paul, Garner, Iowa, for fourteen years. In 1996 he accepted the position of executive director of national Lutherans For Life where he served for twenty years. In December of 2016, he accepted a part time position as a Life Advocate for Lutheran Family Service. He still maintains a busy speaking schedule and is the author of numerous essays, articles, and booklets on a variety of life issues including infertility, in vitro fertilization, and adoption. He and his wife, RoxAnne, live in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Kim Laube earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Iowa in 1991. Kim has worked in several different capacities including Executive Director of Iowans For L.I.F.E., adoption and pregnancy counselor, and Life Ministries Director for Lutheran Family Service. All her work has surrounded the central notion that all human life is valuable. Kim’s work involves both the beginning and end of life stages. She leads the embryo adoption program at Lutheran Family Service where they advocate for the lives of tiny embryos who have been created through in vitro feralization and are cryopreserved. The futures for these embryos are unknown and at risk to be killed if other opportunities like embryo adoption are not available to them. Kim also works to preserve the sanctity at the end of life. She has created programming to discuss the dangers of physician assisted suicide within congregations in Iowa.
