Father Al Lauer continues to touch many, many lives even though he passed on to the Lord on October 13, 2002. If you visit the website of Presentation Ministries, you will find not only the many writings and teachings of Father Al, but also the many testimonies of those who in recent years have heard Father Al for the first time on the radio or by reading One Bread, One Body. Not knowing that he has passed away, they are amazed at his enthusiasm for the Gospel of Jesus as well as his deep and profound knowledge of the faith and the Scriptures. Story after story tells of the way the Holy Spirit used Father Al to change their hearts and lives.
Thousands of people could probably tell their own stories and the way in which we have been touched and blessed by this man of God. But that is not the end of the story. Father Al put into place several ministries that are set up to disciple the laity for service to the Gospel. One of those ministries is the Bible Institute. His vision was to raise up lay people as disciples of Jesus.
In memory of the tenth anniversary of Father's death, the Institute is offering a special program this year entitled, Doctors of the Church: St Albert the Great. This man was Father Al's patron saint and a great teacher of God's word. He held a special place in the hearts of Father Al and his family. St. Albert found God in all aspects of life and found truth in all branches of study but never took his focus off Jesus. Don't miss this exceptional one-day seminar.
