Left or right, liberal or conservative? We're not about any of that! Our mission simply is to encourage, support, inspire and better equip public servants to serve, lead and govern wisely.
Some will like us - others won’t. Depending upon the lenses through which people view the world, some will view us as pro-liberal, others pro-conservative; anti-this or anti-that. We are none of these. But we get it, it’s the divisive world in which we live and serve. But we don’t play the game. Life is not a game neither is public service. We understand the games, we just refuse to play them.
Christians in Public Service is a Christ-centered premier, unique, non-denominational, non-partisan 501 (c)(3) organization. We serve as a conduit for building relationships as we support, inspire and encourage those who serve, lead and govern. We make available opportunity for meetups and conversations on the most pressing issues of the day in a calm space where all feel welcome; and, we walk away perhaps not in agreement but better informed, having made new connections while gaining a better understanding of those who lead.
