BREAKOUTS - SESSION TWO

PASTORS, POLITICS, AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: NAVIGATING THE PASTORATE FROM CITY COUNCIL TO CONGRESS
Jeremy Dys*, Senior Counsel, First Liberty Institute
Many pastors wonder what they can and cannot do when it comes to politics, candidates, and speaking to the issues of the day. Whether it is providing invocations before city council meetings, navigating land use disputes with the county commission, or speaking prophetically on the political issues of the day facing their congregation, pastors need to know what the law permits. We will bring clarity to this issue and provide resources that help you to navigate this issue while boldly standing for the Truth.

SUPPORTING YOUR SPOUSE WHEN THEY STAND FOR TRUTH
Marion Johnson*, Wife of Dr. Ron Johnson, Jr., Living Stones Church, Crown Point, Indiana; Lawana Perkins*, Wife of Tony Perkins, President, FRC
Ministry is a team sport and ministry spouses are the Most Valuable Players. Standing up for Jesus and standing firmly on the Word of God not only requires great faith and courage, but unwavering support. Now, more than ever, we face an assault on everything we hold dear. As pastors and ministry leaders rise up to proclaim the Gospel and its practical implications for how to live it out in society, the encouraging support of their spouses are critical to this mission. Often overlooked, undervalued, and rarely rewarded is this vital contribution. In this breakout for ministry spouses, you will be strengthened, inspired, and equipped to further God’s purpose of standing by your ministry mates while they stand for truth.
