We are helping Christians to engage with legislators and leaders. Abraham Lincoln said it best. “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.” You have a voice and those who speak can be heard. Learn more here about how we can help.

You should write to your specific representative, but sending emails is often best.

- Always identify your name, list any credentials that may be pertinent, include your mailing address and email address.
- If discussing a certain bill, cite the correct title and number if possible.
- Always let the member know that you are praying for them and their staff.
- Be brief and courteous.
- Call monthly and leave a message for the member that you have prayed for them today. Provide your name, town, and church affiliation.

- Always contact their office in advance to schedule an appointment.

“Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
“Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it mean!”
We know that communication is important among all people, in all places, and for all ages. Great things can be accomplished when there is open communication. As Christians, it is vitally important that we be the voice of reason and righteousness. Proverbs 25:5 describes the significance of righteousness influencing leadership. Corresponding with your local leaders, state officials, congressional delegation, and even the President is an effective way to voice your opinion and influence those in authority.
“The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom…” Psalm 37:30
