God is right now calling and preparing Christian men and women to become powerful leaders throughout our nation at all levels of government.
– John Graves, President of Vision America
In the glorious history of America, Christian pastors have been the center of wisdom and influence, wherever men of conscience have gathered.
Wherever courage and discipline have been sorely needed, men of God have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with those they serve; braving every hardship and sustaining faith in the midst of every difficult situation.
Never before have they been more crucial to our country’s moral leadership than they are today.
There is a marked difference between believing in a higher moral order, and the willingness to place everything you hold dear on the line for the cause of religious liberty. Vision America, its founder Dr. Rick Scarborough, and its exciting president, John Graves, remind me of the biblical King David as a young man, when he stood up defiantly, armed with a slingshot and five smooth stones to vanquish Goliath.
Outnumbered and outgunned, as they say in Texas, David stood his ground, marshaled his courage and strode forward to do battle. He didn’t cower. He didn’t equivocate. He simply announced to Goliath: You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord God Almighty.
— 1 Samuel 17:45
Vision America leaders have one crucial weapon that David couldn’t even dream of: the technological ability to communicate their message with thoroughness and wide-ranging power, using social media as their slingshot and 21st century wisdom as their five smooth stones.
