Welcome to Awake America Ohio
Ohio has been privileged to send seven of her native sons to live in the White House, with four of them dying in office. Perhaps the greatest orator from Ohio was President James A. Garfield, who was also the only ordained minister to hold the office of President. When Garfield became President, he left his position as an elder in the church and declared, “I resign the highest office in the land to become president of the United States.” He encouraged virtuous people to hold their elected officials accountable.
“Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.”
Awake America Ohio exists to reconnect the people of God with the people of government. We seek to minister to the officials in our state by educating them to our positions, encouraging them in prayer and engaging them in communication. We also seek to minister to our pastors by educating them in their opportunities to be a voice for their congregations, encouraging them to stand in the gap and engaging them with the legislators and officials in their districts.
The ministry of Awake America Ohio meets a need “for such a time as this.”
