“Every Christian Votes”
Project

Maximizing Voter Turnout In Your Church

 OVERVIEW:  Every American Christian who is eligible to vote does so:

a)       By one’s absence; Failing to vote and allowing elected officials to be chosen by those who do not share the same values, or

b)       Thoughtlessly; By voting out of ignorance or self-serving motivation, or

c)       By becoming informed; Studying candidates’ positions on key issues, praying and casting a knowledgeable vote for candidates who most closely conform to Biblical principles of character and the vital issues of the day.

 Most pastors would agree that options A and B are poor stewardship and have led to ungodly, unjust and corrupt leaders being chosen, resulting in unrighteous government.  It is still an accepted statistic that less than one out of three churchgoing citizens vote in each election, a fact of which we should be ashamed.

The first step we recommend is for the Pastor to appoint a permanent Citizenship Ministry coordinator for this ministry as described in Christian Citizenship 101 (available by clicking download link at bottom of page), request by emailing info@uspastorcouncil.org or by calling the HAPC office at 832-688-9166).
