The US Pastor Council stands up for religious freedom. The church has been attacked by the MSM, various representatives and senators. Christians need to be able to practice their faith without fear of retribution. This group is our voice.
Simply explained, my experience with US Pastor Council, I see people that live by a very strong faith, integrity and accountability. All the people I have met have a very compelling and strong faith in God, they have integrity as they push forward during the political turmoil, and US Pastors Council does all of this in their accountability to God in this calling to work hard for God and Country.
About a year ago, I heard Rev. Dave Welch present a workshop on "Citizenship is Ministry" at the Christian Values Summit at Grace Church in The Woodlands, TX. The message resonated with my convictions that there is no greater mission field than our public square.
I know several pastors associated with the USPC that have demonstrated their faith and courage by taking public stands on controversial social issues. That is the type of leadership I admire; it is one that leads by example.
Being responsible for self-government is NOT simply politics. And it is NOT encouraging support for a particular person or party with a herd mentality. A Christian has an obligation to vet, select, and hold accountable public officials that live by Biblical principles.
As Rev. Jim Garlow says, selecting candidates based on Scriptural virtues is "Biblical applicationalism". Therefore, a person's Biblical worldview should be reflected in all spheres of life, not just warming a pew on Sunday mornings.
I encourage you to subscribe to the USPC "PastorGram" to stay abreast of important current cultural matters, to attend their "Institute for American Christian Citizenship", and to take a stand for things that matter. People that I have spoken with from countries such as Cuba, Venezuela, Iraq, and Iran, wish they had those types of opportunities in their respective countries. May we never forget that "Freedom is never free".
I'm grateful for having discovered the US Pastor Council, from a national perspective. It's so important for pastors to connect and strengthen each other, especially in the context of understanding Biblical citizenship. I am looking into ways to use this material for the purpose of strengthening students before they attend college within our college prep organization.

For over 15 years, the U.S. Pastor Council has been one of the most insightful, courageous, and compassionate Christian non-profit organizations in America. Lead by Rev. Dave Welch the U.S. Pastor Council has been standing in the gap for God and Country. Its mission has been to empower pastors and their congregations across racial and denominational lines to impact the culture and community through concerted prayer while equipping and restore congregations for effective citizenship as part of the ministry.
The US Pastor Council has done amazing work here in Houston, bringing believers, pastors and ministry leaders to further the cause of Christ and to preserve our American heritage. I have attended several meetings, prayer gatherings and seminars sponsored by the USPC and always come away with contacts, ideas, knowledge and encouragement. Thank you Dave, Michael, David and all of your member pastors for your hard work on behalf of the Body of Christ.
