The 2016 CWA Issues in Focus Series was kicked off on February 29, 2016, at the Stephenson County Farm Bureau in Freeport, Illinois, with our guest Rev. Robert Vanden Bosch, CEO of Concerned Christian Americans.
Rev. Bob spoke on a variety of topics ranging from his personal experiences with legislators during his 30 tenure as a Christian lobbyist in Springfield to the 2016 Elections. He stressed the importance of Christians becoming active participants in the political arena and urged attendees to pray for their leaders, to get to know them by helping with their campaigns, and to run for office – especially as Precinct Committeemen.
He urged Christians to participate in the Presidential election, stressing they could change the course of America with their efforts and votes. A time for questions and answers immediately followed the briefing.
Attendees enjoyed chicken casserole, fresh fruit cup, homemade Callah bread and a variety of homemade pies a la mode.
In attendance was Debi Allen, CWA’s new Prayer/Action Chapter Leader from Rock Island.
