Many Christians realize that our Nation has virtually become a "den of thieves" and the efforts to erase Biblical Truths, Morals and indeed the Faith itself are escalating daily.
Accordingly we ask that you, individually, talk to your pastor about establishing a
Community Awareness Team within your church.
We will show you what to do.
Issue Awareness -
Through our network we strive to keep you informed on issues that are critical to the community. We ask that each church establish a Community Awareness Ministry (CAM) to assist in making information and resources available to meet the needs of your community. Email:
Voter Registration -
We encourage each pastor to urge his congregation to register to vote and then vote in accordance with their Biblical Belief.
Political Training Process & Community Strategy -
We can show you how to create a specific strategy to improve your community. We offer courses on the political process, how to get involved and Grassroots Organizational Training.
ESL - English as a second language (as available) classes offered through local churches.
Youth for Christ, Big Brother, and other organizations often assist students with academic needs, mentoring, tutoring etc. Becoming aware of local resources and volunteering to assist them in some manner, will prove a win-win for all involved.
Our society moves at an ever-accelerating pace. Education is critical. Always take advantage of every opportunity to increase your knowledge.
