Patriot Pastors’ Days at the Capitol

Patriot Pastors’ Days are scheduled on days when the legislature is in session. These days are designed for pastors to reconnect with their state officials and keep the lines of encouragement and communication open. Additionally these days will provide us the opportunity to meet as a group with officials, to participate in committee hearings or provide other unique opportunities to stay engaged with our leaders.

Honoring Departing Legislators

On the last scheduled day of the 132nd General Assembly, on behalf of the nearly 500 independent Baptist pastors and churches across Ohio, we were privileged to acknowledge four different legislators for their commitment to the scriptural role of government and their faithful service in our state.

Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance)

Christina Hagan has always been a champion for the unborn and a willing sponsor of the Fetal Heartbeat Bill. This bill, when enacted into law, will outlaw abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected – generally from 6 to 8 weeks in a pregnancy.

Representative Bill Patmon (D-Cleveland)

In July 2015 Representative Patmon sponsored a bill which was to strip Planned Parenthood of all state funding in Ohio. While the bill passed, the courts struck down the measure. In his four terms he has shown himself to be a loyal defender of life and also a strong advocate for religious liberty.

Representative Terry Johnson (R-Portsmouth)

Throughout his four terms in the house, Dr. Johnson has been boldly vocal concerning his personal faith in Jesus Christ. His experience as both a surgeon and a veteran propelled him to serve unselfishly for Ohio veterans and their families.

Representative Ron Young (R-LeRoy Township)

Representative Young has been a faithful public servant who has a voting record consistent with his personal faith in Christ. In this most recent session he submitted resolutions and legislation to recognize and assist faith-based recovery ministries as they attack the opioid epidemic in our state with Bible-based curriculum and actions.
