There is a new climate in Washington, DC! The overt hostility toward religious faith that has been present in recent years has changed. Our trips to DC in recent weeks to meet with congressional leaders have affirmed that many positive changes are now underway — toward chaplains in the military, faith-based programs, protecting traditional moral values, strengthening protections for public religious expressions, and more. It is amazing the optimism that now fills so many Members of Congress, and the number of positive bills they are filing and preparing to pass.
There is also a fresh atmosphere of boldness in Congress, and that same spirit should be found in our churches. We need a revival of what the British in the American War for Independence dubbed the Black Robe Regiment — a throwback to the days when ministers were so impactful that they were credited (or blamed, from the British point of view) with being largely responsible for the American War for Independence! John Adams agreed, specifically identifying clergy among those he felt were most influential in securing America’s independence.
We want you to experience and be part of the new sea change in America, and to that end, we’d like to extend a special invitation to you to join us at the WallBuilders’ Congressional Pastors’ Briefings in Washington, DC.
Our briefings will be held April 4-5 and September 12-13, 2017. If you are a pastor or ministry leader, we invite you to register to attend one of the briefings – but hurry, space is limited!
The briefings include a nighttime, after-hours Spiritual Heritage tour of the United States Capitol, and a day filled with exclusive briefings from leading Senators and Representatives on issues of importance to people of faith.
There is no charge for the Briefings; but attendees are responsible for their own transportation, food, and lodging. The events are truly inspiring and a blessing to all who attend!
