We are thrilled to announce The Council for Life Central Texas Celebrating Life Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, in the Brazos Ballroom at the Waco Convention Center.

Featured Speaker – Jim Caviezel

We are ecstatic to announce that our speaker is actor Jim Caviezel who portrayed Jesus in The Passion of the Christ and most recently starred in the highly successful film Sound of Freedom. Mr. Caviezel both affirms life with his words and lives out his beliefs of cherishing every life.

Honorary Chair – Drayton McLane, Jr.

We are privileged to have Drayton McLane, Jr. as our Honorary Chair. Mr. McLane serves as chairman of the McLane Group and is the former CEO of the Houston Astros Baseball Club.

For the last three-plus decades, McLane has been one of Baylor’s largest and most dedicated benefactors. He and his family have supported numerous endowed scholarships and helped make possible some of the campus’ most iconic structures of the last half-century. The bells in Pat Neff Hall, the McLane Student Life Center and Baylor’s football stadium all bear his and his family’s name.

We are so grateful for Mr. McLane’s compassion to boldly protect life.

They serve the most vulnerable in our community with compassionate care through Pregnancy Resource Centers, Abortion Pill Reversal, Adoption and Foster Care, Maternity Homes, Post-Abortion Support, Parenting and Life Skills Education, Youth and College Mentoring, Sexual Risk Avoidance and Targeted Media Outreach.

The Luncheon promises to be filled with inspiring stories and opportunities to make a meaningful impact in the Central Texas community.
