Mike Long is one of the most sought after speakers for Pro-Life banquets and fundraisers due to his enthusiastic message. One of the pioneers of the abstinence education movement, Mike has woven his 30 years of speaking on sexual purity into one of the most unique messages of prevention and restoration on the issue of abortion. His presentation, which includes humor and stories that touch every heart, captivates his audiences.
His message is simple: The #1 goal of Pregnancy Resource Center ministries is to help young women who have made a wrong choice in their lives, not make another one called abortion. PRCs are very successful in achieving that goal, but when they do, the question should arise, “Do we want to see that young woman back a year from now?” The answer is no and that is why Mike’s message is so appealing.
Mike and his family are originally from Raleigh/Durham, NC and currently reside in Atlanta, GA. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mike served as a legislative assistant for the late US Senator Jesse Helms. He then became a teacher in the Durham Public Schools. His teaching career led to the development of his nationally acclaimed videotape series "Everyone Is NOT Doing It," one of the most persuasive abstinence education programs currently used in over 5000 school systems throughout the world. In addition, he has authored two books, has a Masters degree in Christian School Administration from Southeastern Theological Seminary, and is recognized as one of the Outstanding Young Men of America.
