Program & Speaker Details

If you are looking for some inspiration, you don’t want to miss the September AWC Speaker Series!  Empowering women, youth, and at-risk individuals is the primary mission of I Pour Life.  Our speaker will be I Pour Life’s new Executive Director, Ben McBride, a local attorney that decided to pivot in his career and answer a greater calling. 


I Pour Life was founded in 2011 by Julie Higgins, to empower and equip individuals with social and economic disadvantages to become self-sufficient. The first initiative was in El Salvador, and after five years of coming alongside local leaders, I Pour Life began to launch other sustainable development programs around the world.


Today, I Pour Life operates LifeStrengths for at-risk, marginalized, and homeless youth in Missouri and Texas, as well as a community development and family empowerment program in Kore, Ethiopia for individuals who are experiencing extreme poverty and have been diagnosed with leprosy, HIV/AIDs, and Tuberculosis.


One person and one community at a time, I Pour Life is providing a hand up, not a hand out to people with economic and social disadvantages. I Pour Life is an international 501c3 based in Springfield, Missouri, with satellite offices in Dallas, Texas and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
