Abby (Ludvigson) Schumacher

Abby (Ludvigson) Schumacher received her B.A. in Elementary Education (K-8) and taught in the public school system before going on staff with The Minnesota Family Institute. She eventually became their Director of Education with the mission to equip families and teens with the Biblical response needed to resist the cultural shift in sexual purity. In 2011, she joined The Navigators as an urban missionary to invest more deeply in the lives of parents and youth (ages 12-18). Using her background in teaching, Abby continues to create curriculum she delivers at universities, schools, and churches around the Upper Midwest. She also conducts parent seminars to increase their confidence in navigating courageous conversations at home. In 2015, Abby produced a film series entitled Sex By Design that is endorsed by four national leaders, including Josh McDowell.
