According to the Family Research Council, it wants to help concerned citizens form a “Community Impact Team” as the first step in positive change that impacts the community, the state, and nation.
Tim Throckmorton, who is FRC’s national director of community impact, told the "Washington Watch" program each team is unique to their own community.
“But as they pray and seek what God wants them to do,” he said, “God opens the doors and it’s exciting to watch what’s happening,”
Throckmorton gave the example of a recent education-themed meeting called “Eyes on Education,” which was held at a small church in North Carolina. Five panelists who participated offered their unique perspective from public school, home school groups, private and Christian schools, and a charter school.
“And they talked about key educational issues, parental rights issues, school board issues, and had a great Q-and-A session with all that were in attendance,” he said.
FRC recommends a Community Impact Team with three to six members who are accountable to the church pastor. That is because every issue is a spiritual battle at its core.
A sign-up page for a Community Impact Team is online here.
For churches that want to learn more, FRC is also hosting a live stream event Tuesday, Oct 3 at 6:30 CST.
