NATIONAL CALL TO MEETING
"For Such A Time As This"

Dear Friend,

You are invited to join former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, former Congressman Bob McEwen along with other Christian elected officials and Christian leaders from around the nation at the Charter Meeting of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL) being held in Destin, Florida on August 4-5, 2020.

Simply click on the TICKETS link above for full details about the meeting, registration and hotel reservations. This is an exclusive event with only 200 seats available at the beautiful Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa.

The National Association of Christian Lawmakers currently has 17 committed state chairs already confirmed from states covering 138.3 million American citizens, which is approximately 41% of the entire U.S. population, and includes 5 of the 10 most populous states in America.

We are uniting Christian elected officials and lawmakers together at the local, state and federal level to debate and discuss the major policy issues facing our nation and propose solutions through model laws, ordinances, statutes and resolutions all from a Biblical worldview - this is the first time it has formally been done in our nation’s history. 

Our founding fathers made four specific references to God in the Declaration of Independence referring to Him as Nature’s God, our Creator, the Supreme Judge of the World and Divine Providence. The founders hinged their rationale for declaring our independence upon the clear notion that God has given every person natural rights that no man created and no man can take away. Our nation is forgetting this fundamental principle of our American Republic and it is time that we take action before it is too late.

The year 2020 has brought our nation the COVID19 pandemic, economic turmoil, social unrest, racial strife, churches burned, businesses burned, statues torn down, monuments defaced and rioting in our streets across the country. We even have people calling for the police and law enforcement to be defunded which will lead to more anarchy and chaos. Now is the time for our leaders to recognize we must call upon God for His wisdom and direction for our nation.
 
We understand that this association will not be supported by every legislator or lawmaker in the country. We all have a right to our own personal beliefs and convictions. For all those who understand the importance of protecting our Judeo-Christian history and heritage we invite you to help launch the organization as a charter member and join with us to take a stand for God & Country.

Our goal is to organize the National Association of Christian Lawmakers to be a functioning legislative organization that has a leadership structure populated by Christian lawmakers on committees from the local, state and federal level. Once we are fully operational, we will debate and discuss major policy issues facing our nation, and formulate model laws, statutes, ordinances and resolutions based upon a Biblical worldview for introduction in cities, counties, states and nationally at the federal level. No other organization has done this or is currently doing this in our country today. You will become a charter member of an organization that will have a profound positive impact upon public discourse and the future direction of our nation.
Consider this - John Jay was a member of the Continental Congress from 1774 through 1779, serving as its president in 1778-79. He drafted New York’s first constitution in 1777, was the chief justice of the New York supreme court in 1777 and 1778. He became the United States minister to Spain in 1779, and signed the final peace treaty with England. He was the US secretary of foreign affairs 1784 to 1789. He was one of the Constitution’s most outspoken proponents, and in 1789, he became the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and finally, the governor of New York from 1795 until 1801. He co-authored the Federalist Papers and was also elected president of the Westchester Bible Society in 1818, and in 1821, John Jay also became the president of the American Bible Society.

We all should remember John Jay's courageous statement made on October 12, 1816:

“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. National prosperity can neither be obtained nor preserved without the favor of Providence.”

This is one of the most bold statements ever made by a significant leader in our nation. Unfortunately his wisdom has been shunned and long buried by secular humanists in their hope of secularizing our nation to the point that no mention of God is ever allowed in the public square. It is time to take action and we are looking for solid leaders who are willing to take a stand. 
We are not only a policy organization, we are here to unite Christian lawmakers for fellowship and envision providing executive level leadership training for lawmakers and prospective lawmakers to train them how to endure the fire that we receive while in the trenches as elected officials. We need to be creating leaders who will stand strong no matter what difficulty or challenge lies before them.

The goal is for elected officials to come together in support of clear Biblical principles and do our best to ensure that our nation lives up to our national motto "In God We Trust".

Former President Ronald Reagan once said,

"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience...without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot endure...if we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under".

We agree with President Reagan and we know there are many of you who agree with him as well. We look forward to hearing from you soon and hope you will join us in Destin, Florida August 4-5, 2020. Time is short REGISTER today.
