Drew Zahn, director of communications for The Family Leader, the organization behind The Family Leadership Summit 2021, tells One News Now this year's event is planned for Friday, July 16th at Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines.
"We bring in leaders, faith leaders, entertainment and cultural leaders, and government all to address a Christian audience not about politics, but about principles over politics and how we can work together across all of these spheres to bring true spiritual and cultural transformation to our nation," he details.
BlazeTV host and author Steve Deace, Governors Kristi Noem (R-South Dakota) and Kim Reynolds (R-Iowa), former Vice President Mike Pence, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, author Joel Rosenberg, and Dr. Michael Youssef of "Leading The Way" are on this year's list of speakers.
"Attendees at The Family Leadership Summit tell us every year the thing that really makes it special to them is how inspiring it is, how encouraging it is to gather with people that have a commitment and a heart to see America transformed for the Kingdom of Christ," Zahn shares. "Sometimes you can feel alone, but when you come and you gather with thousands of other people, and you hear national prominent leaders you would not have a chance to hear anywhere else, and you're all together talking about seeing this country revived in Christ's name, it's so exciting, it's inspiring, [and] it's encouraging."
Sponsors of The Family Leadership Summit include Susan B. Anthony List, Family Policy Alliance, and Alliance Defending Freedom.
