"Equip and mobilize" gaining momentum

MFC/MFI’s mission to mobilize pastors and churches for Christian citizenship and biblical influence in culture is gaining momentum - and recognition.

Equip: A recent article in The Rake "Do You Really Believe", highlights MFI’s efforts to spread The Truth Project across Minnesota. One pastor has called the response a “movement” as over 140 churches have committed to conducting a Truth Project in their church. Over 400 of these prospective leaders are attending Truth Project Leadership Training this weekend at Harbor Church in Hastings.

Mobilize: One of the results of MFC’s efforts to pass a marriage amendment was the creation of a database of social conservatives. An article in the Pioneer Press “Amazed by Tuesday? Just Wait”, recognized MFC’s role in mobilizing voters to attend their local caucuses.

“Activist organizations - from the gay rights groups OutFront Minnesota and Human Rights Campaign, to the family values groups Minnesota Family Council and Minnesota Family Institute - urged and helped their constituents to caucus. “
