Join the Georgia Life Alliance today and help bring attention and healing to the struggles of the unborn and other at-risk groups.

The Georgia Life Alliance advocates for the vulnerable, the abandoned, and the defenseless: the baby still in her mother’s womb, the orphaned child desperate for a safe and loving home, and the woman who finds herself in a desperate situation.

We will work tirelessly to bring attention and healing to the struggles of the unborn and other at-risk groups, endeavoring to help secure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Georgians.

Israel Horn VP of Development & Outreach
Israel Horn
Israel Horn is the son of Jerry and Bonnie Horn, one of the couples responsible for the 1980’s explosive grass roots effort to raise awareness in the Church about abortion. Though he was born in Andrews, TX, Israel moved from place to place with his family as they followed the Lord in the efforts to awaken the Church and inspire Christians to actively pray and work to end abortion. Tutored by his father, Israel learned the art and grace of public relations and fundraising. As a young man he organized and led youth rallies and projects as the President for Fredericksburg Youth for Life.  At 17 he began working with American Life League as a fund raiser.
In 2004 he joined his father at Priests for Life making high donor calls.  He worked with Priests for Life until May 2013 as the Assistant Director of Development.  While there, Israel brought in hundreds of thousands per year, and moved well over 100 families to the higher donor lists.  He built many close relationships with pro-life Catholics and others around the country.  Pouring into the lives of the people he called, many shared personal prayer requests and kept him informed as to how their situations faired.
As always, the job was about more than raising money.  Israel’s motto for raising money is: “Inspire the giving of resources for God’s work in ways that are glorifying to God, which always includes loving and encouraging other in their faith and love towards God.”  Israel has been married to Sarah for 15 ½ years.  They have four children ( Jeshurun, Lillian, Malachi, and Ethan), and are active members of Kirby Woods Baptist Church.
Israel became part of the Georgia Life Alliance Team in May 2016.
He can be reached at Israel@georgialifealliance.com
