A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

It’s amazing what we can do when we come together.

“In 2011 my wife and I founded Freedom’s Journal Institute. We believed then, and still do now, that a strong Christian faith requires our participation in the political process. God established government and the laws or public policy that shape our society. It is therefore incumbent upon the Church to vote its values and stand for what we say we believe.

Thanks for the support that makes it all possible!“
