Denny Hartford has been the Director of Vital Signs Ministries for over 25 years. A courageous and creative Christian activist, Denny has not only led one of the most active, most influential pro-life agencies in the nation, he also has maintained a busy regimen of traveling, speaking and organizing similar ministries across the nation. Denny's popularity as a speaker and inventive educator, however, is based largely upon his own example of personal spirituality and commitment to effectively "rescue those being led away to slaughter." For example, he has served a quarter of century as a sidewalk counselor at Omaha-area abortion mills and was one of the first evangelicals to be involved in peaceful "rescue" actions. In addition, Denny and his wife, Claire, were the principal founders of the AAA Center for Pregnancy Counseling.
