This easy, yet very influential, role is crucial to our preservation of traditional family values in Michigan.
A Church Liaison is an ambassador in their local church. Their role is to directly implement the Pews to the Polls grassroots program, providing key information and tools to aid their church in being effective responsible Christian citizens.
As a respected member of the congregation, a Church Liaison works under, and with approval from, the church leadership. This role may look different based on the individual church or pastor and their needs, desires and ministry’s agenda. Also, depending on the size of the congregation, this effort may require the formation of a team to accomplish the suggested goals.
The purpose of this role is not to bring “politics” into the church. Rather, with the understanding that every aspect of our lives (traffic laws, taxes, etc) is influenced by government, it is designed to help citizens take a responsible and engaging role in the decision making process. Government was important enough to God for Him to clearly instruct us:
“The authorities that exist have been established by God. For (governmental authority) is God’s servant to do you good” (Romans 13:1).
God has commissioned us as individuals to be responsible stewards of the freedoms and gifts He has given us on this earth. Therefore, it is important to increase the Church’s awareness of what is happening in the public arena on issues that matter. If people of faith, virtues, integrity and traditional values do not monitor the activity of our local, state and national leaders NOW, our rare system of freedoms could be stripped away…very soon. It is imperative that we be diligent for this and future generations.
This role is not party affiliated, and not tied to any candidate or ballot initiative. It can be as big or as small as a role in your church as you and your leadership decide.
