Derek Loux's memorial to highlight all the children adopted because of his influence

The many children adopted because of the work and influence of Derek Loux will be central to the memorial service for the Christian singing star, adoption advocate and father of ten who was killed in a highway accident the day before Christmas Eve.

As Christian adoption groups around the country reel from his loss and prepare for the farewell, a post on the The Zoe Foundation ("promoting adoption as a positive alternative to abortion") website says that at the Loux family's wishes, the foundation is helping produce a large "display of children who were adopted as a result of Derek’s influence over the past few years. The display will be used in the memorial service as well as placed in the Children’s Home that Renee (Derek's widow) plans on building in days to come."

The memorial service will take place at the International House of Prayer-Kansas City Forerunner School of Ministry Building at 12444 Grandview Road in Kansas City, Missouri.

Viewing of the body will be 10 am to noon, with the service from 2 to 4:30 pm.

The service can be seen live on www.ihop.org.
