Announcing…Indiana Pastors Alliance

February 22nd, 2010 No comments

I wanted to make you aware of an exciting, new ministry we had the pleasure of launching last week in Indianapolis at a special briefing for pastors sponsored by my friends at the Family Research Council and the Alliance Defense Fund called: iMPACT 2010 – Unleashing the Voice of the Church. It’s called the Indiana Pastors Alliance

The IPA is a network of clergy, churches and Christian organizations who have come together to advance and defend the cause of faith, family and freedom throughout our great State. Our alliance exists to further the following objectives:

  • Affirm the authority of Scripture as objective Truth (2 Timothy 3:16)
  • Acknowledge God as the Creator and Governor over His creation (Genesis 1:1)
  • Proclaim Jesus Christ as the “Ruler over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 1:5)
  • Obediently pursue Jesus’ command to be “salt and light” to the culture
  • Bring Biblical solutions to contemporary social problems
  • Encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues
  • Preach boldly about moral issues from the pulpit
  • Enlist our congregations to get involved in our political process on a non-partisan basis
  • Envision, equip and encourage competent Christian men and women to run for office and to lead in our local communities
  • Support our elected officials through prayer and practical acts of kindness and service

I’ll have the privilege of joining with the Family Research Council, the Alliance Defense Fund and the Indiana Family Institute in an effort to encourage pastors to take a more proactive role in public policy issues. I want to encourage you to check out the website: when you have a moment. And please pray that the Lord would gather pastors who want to see revival in the Church and cultural transformation in our Nation.

Off to India!

Tomorrow I leave with Pastor Lonny for a week of ministry with our dear friend, Pastor Honoch, in the sprawling, people packed, nation of India. During the week, I will be highlighting the incredible legacy left by one man’s radical obedience. The India we are visiting today would not be here if it were not for the heroic life and ministry of William Carey. He embodies the potential each one of has to bring the Kingdom of God to earth. As I have searched for real life models of cultural transformation, Carey’s example has been a guiding light.

Please pray for me. Traveling with Pastor Lonny is not easy. We have more fun than any two people deserve! To all who helped to underwrite the expenses for this outreach, THANK YOU!  May the Lord be glorified!
