Executive Director Gene Mills , an ordained minister and highly sought-after motivational speaker, brings 20+ years of experience in working with pro-life and pro-family issues to the Louisiana Family Forum. Operating in the strategic LSU campus area, Gene directed Chi Alpha Campus Outreach and the Women's Resource Center, providing critical Christian counseling and crisis intervention services to thousands of students in need. Gene's leadership skills resulted in his selection to direct the statewide activities of Heartbeat of Louisiana, a network of clergy, business, and governmental leaders focusing on various family and faith initiatives.
Since its inception in 1999, Gene has directed the activities of Louisiana Family Forum (LFF), a non-profit research and education organization providing "a voice for traditional families in Louisiana" . LFF's impressive international network includes associations with Dr. James Dobson's Focus on the Family; Washington D.C. based Family Research Council, and forty state-level family policy councils nationwide.
Bringing a commitment to family and public service to Louisiana Family Forum, Gene is married to Blanche Bollich Mills, the 2003 Louisiana Young Mother of the Year. He and Blanche have five sons and three daughters.
Gene's other accomplishments include syndication of the "Louisiana Family Minute," a lively radio minute currently broadcast on over 50 radio stations throughout Louisiana. His Ambassadors curriculum has served as a catalyst for faith-based institutions to engage their culture and restore biblical foundations. Gene is a regular guest on media venues throughout Louisiana and uses this outlet to bring forth a message of hope, courage, and community connectedness.
