Pews to the Polls
Responsible Christian Citizenship
As a Church Liaison, you represent your church.
Our Pews to the Polls initiative promotes the importance of responsible Christian citizenship in strategic churches and locations throughout Michigan through church members who are passionate about civil issues. We call these volunteers “Church Liaisons.” They serve as a conduit for information between CTV and their local church family. Through the networks we create, we provide educational materials and seminars, distribute informational, nonpartisan voter guides, and make calls to church members encouraging them to vote based on their personal convictions prior to elections.
By moving citizens from the Sunday pews to the election polls, this program has been proven to effectively increase voter awareness and participation. In close races, increased church voting percentages can make all the difference.
When people of faith engage, traditional family values win.
What is a Church Liaison?
A Church Liaison is a volunteer ambassador in their local church working with CTV.
Their role is to directly implement the Pews to the Polls program, providing key information and tools to aid their congregation in being responsible Christian citizens. This simple, yet influential role is crucial to the preservation of traditional family values in Michigan.
As a respected member of their church, a Church Liaison works under the approval of their church’s leadership. This role may look different based on the individual church or pastor and their needs.
Church Liaisons are not party affiliated. They are not tied to any candidate or ballot initiative. Your service in this role can be as big or as small as you and your church’s leadership decide.

What does a Liaison do?
- Education: Talk to your church community about the religious heritage of our nation, what our God-given freedoms are, and why our engagement as responsible Christian citizens is vital for the preservation of those freedoms. You might host events like seminars or Bible studies.
- Increase Issue Awareness: Provide timely information about import issues that need attention. Let your congregation know to pray for outcomes in our state and federal legislature that uphold our religious freedom, respect what is good, and punish what is evil.
- Build a Team: Depending on the size of your congregation, it may be helpful to form a group of church members who are passionate about implementing CTV’s educational programs.
- Network: Talk to your friends and family who are part of churches other than your own. See if they might be interested in becoming a church liaison themselves.
- Voter Registration: Encourage citizens to check their voting status online and ensure their address is up to date.
- Voter Guides: Distribute CTV’s non-partisan voter guides contrasting candidate views on important issues. Church members should vote based on their conscience and what they care about.
- Voter Mobilization: A few days before the election, each church member should receive an election reminder phone call.
