  • Where do Christians need to have a voice in policy-making?
  • Where should our Christian values dictate our personal decisions?

“American Christians are constantly having to weigh the reality of pluralism in our own lives; asking ourselves how should we uphold our citizenship in Heaven while engaging in society as American citizens?” said Carl Nelson, president and CEO of Transform Minnesota.
