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.

RALLY IN COLUMBUS – Thursday, May 21, 2020
Independent Baptist pastors from all over Ohio attended this exciting event last year both in and around the Statehouse. Pastor Michael Creed (Clinton, MD) preached powerful messages each evening while legislators spoke unashamedly about their faith in Christ and expressed just how important our prayers and encouragement are to them.
While committees, caucuses and meetings regarding the state budget definitely took center stage, we are grateful to those pictured above who attended the luncheon. We also wish to express our gratitude to Representative Jena Powell and Senator Tim Schaffer who met with us in the morning in the Thomas Worthington Center who are bold in their faith and encouraged us greatly.
As the event closed, both Representative Darrell Kick and Lt. Governor Jon Husted greatly honored us with their presence during one of the busiest times of the year. They spoke in the evening service at North Columbus Baptist Church before Pastor Creed’s final message. Our hearts were touched by their honesty and humility as they related personal stories which encouraged believers to walk as true believers and make a difference for Christ each day.
The residents in Ohio are truly blessed to have the caliber of legislators like these, and many others, in positions of government.
