Comm #22: The Word That Changes Everything

Good afternoon to you, our treasured pastors and ministry leaders. Joan here. Do you know, we pray over you all the time, and you’re on our minds even more so now as we are about to let you in on a really really good plan we’ve been hatching for you.

Starting in September, we’re bringing David Barton, our country’s premier historian, to about 35 cities across the country to tell you - especially you- the truth about America’s miraculous incredible mind-blowing story.

There’s nobody better than David to do this. Outside of the Library of Congress, he’s got the most extensive privately held collection of original American documents in the country. He’s spent decades, along with his team of researchers, combing them, in order to understand the exact accurate truth of our country’s life story.

And our story is that FAITH is the underpinning of our country. Pastors are its backbone. The Church is its strength. The Word of God has influenced every little thing. And it’s precisely because of that Biblical guidance when our Founders launched us, that America has been the thrilling wonder of the world.

The Word of God changes everything. Every. Thing. And Church leaders who teach that Word are the ones who truly uphold our amazing life here in America.

But aren’t you tired of the secular media telling everyone that the Bible has no place in our national life? They are ludicrously wrong! Seriously- that’s enough of that!

So we thought we’d show you David, let you see and hear David. Bring him to you for real - live and in person. Let his words explain our country which was founded by sticking to GOD’S Word, and just how that works. Because, trust me, you’ve never heard anything like this in your life. What you’ll hear will electrify you. Once you know the truth about us, your view of America will clarify, and you will explode with joy and gratitude.

I have personally heard David speak many times, so I can tell you it’s true. And yes, hiking him all around the country is a real undertaking, but we all wanted to do it for you. So you’d know. And so you could gather in person and hear David’s words right out of his mouth. And see him with your own eyes. It’s the best way.

On our website for The Church Finds Its Voice, you’ll see the event schedule for the speaking tour we’re calling “The American Restoration Tour.” Please have a look.

It will change everything.

Progress is fine and all, but it’s definitely NOT fine when people think progress should erase God’s grace toward us and pretend He was never a part of our freedoms. He’s the most important part!!

We’re the only nation that has ever had real freedom, and we’ve been a kind of living example to other countries of what freedom in Christ must be like. Our country’s Christianity has been our most compelling witness to others. It’s why protesters in Cuba wave OUR flag!!

Now our challenge is to keep ourself as our TRUE self. It’s time to refresh what we know about who we really are; a country under God’s Word. The Word that changes everything.



More on this from Faith Wins President and Founder, Chad Connelly...

I can tell stories of pastors from all over the nation who have been stirred over the past eight years as I’ve traveled and met with them in their churches and towns. There is no doubt that when they become informed about God’s role in American history-- and Joan is right-- NO one can deliver that better than David Barton; they are inspired to get off the sidelines and into the game to engage this culture!

I took 17 top pastors on our Faith Wins team to Washington, DC this past spring and had them listen to David Barton’s talk about God’s providential role in our nation’s history, and I wish all of you could have seen their reactions first hand. Two-thirds of those pastors were under 35 and had never had the chance to hear David Barton speak - and most weren’t even familiar with his work. Here are some quotes I wrote down then ---

“I had no idea pastors spoke on issues from earthquakes to railroads to elections…”

“I have to up my game to match what pastors used to do to teach their congregations about the issues of the day!”

“No wonder our generation is so confused, most of us (pastors) AREN’T teaching our people to think!”

I really could go on and on but suffice it to say, you need to be at one of our events this fall. We’ll be putting out the dates soon, but there will be over 35 events in over 15 states. The coming American Restoration Tour is specifically for you pastors. We’d like you to come and bring an associate pastor with you if you can, and/or an elder. Visit The Church Finds Its Voice website for event opportunities that may be open to families, as well.

God Bless, stay tuned for our announcements!



Here are thoughts on this from Brad Dacus, President and Founder of the Pacific Justice Institute...

America needs a revival of what has made this country great, but this is not possible without a clear reminder of the values God has blessed this nation with. David Barton provides the greatest historical evidence to provide the reminder for what made this country great. He will encourage people of all backgrounds to increase their love for America and to seek to restore our nation back to its moral foundation.

The Restore America Tour, this fall, has the potential to unite churches all across America around the common theme of patriotism and the founding principles that will be on full display at each of these events. There will be eye opening information about our history that every Christian needs to hear, and it will be the paradigm shift needed to propel change in America today.

Pacific Justice will be helping promote these events and will be encouraging all freedom loving people to be a part of the incredible movement that will flow from these gatherings. We believe the Church is ready to help restore America and again receive God's blessing. For instance, as PJI has been providing resources for pastors who have had their liberties and freedoms limited during the pandemic, we have seen a resurgence and an awakening of churches that had all but abandoned their responsibility to be the ambassadors of the values that our founding fathers held dear.



And some final thoughts and encouragement from Kielle Horton, President of the Lindsey Foundation…

Friends, we are certainly in a time of spiritual battle in this country. The enemy wants nothing more than to take down our God-blessed and purposefully chosen nation. Have you felt it lately? I sure can seem like there are challenges, difficulties, stresses and discouraging news every which way we turn. But be encouraged by the good news that our mighty God is always in control...He goes before us, so very ready at every moment to love, help and guide us.

I recently heard a powerful sermon on the 23rd Psalm...verses we have listened to and recited multiple times, verses I know you have preached on many times. But this time, and on the receiving end of a deep dive into the meaning of each verse, I had my eyes opened to the beauty of God’s love for us in those promises.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

God is leading you, friends. It isn’t always easy, and it is not promised that it will be, but God does promise to be our faithful, loving and dedicated Shepherd who will always lead us in the right way. In the midst of the times when you feel that His calling on your life is too difficult or the stress feels too overwhelming, remember His faithful promises to us.

Resting in His Word changes everything.

We are covering the American Restoration Tour in prayer, and we are also praying for protection over you, your church, your congregation, your community and all who will hear David’s compelling words. He is with us always, going before us, making our paths straight...our cups runneth over. God Bless You!



We stand with you and are praying for you!
