Changing Government, Changing Lives
The Lord is doing great things in the Charis Third Year Practical Government School.
The students are being equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to make a real difference in the “mountain” or arena of government!
The students of the school recently traveled to Denver, Colorado, to observe the Colorado State Senate in action. They met with several conservative, Christian senators—Senator Owen Hill, Senator Kevin Lundberg and former Senator Dave Schultheis. They were able to observe the whole Senate in session, as well as the Committee for State, Veterans and Military Affairs.
Afterwards, Senators Hill and Schultheis took the time to meet with the students in a private session, sharing their hearts and vision for carrying out the Great Commission within the context of their calling in politics and government.
What the students said of their experience:
“From sitting briefly in this committee meeting, I can see a distinctive line in how different worldviews can cause a nation to prevail or to fail. When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn (Proverbs 29:2).”
“This was another significant learning experience for me, and I believe for all the members of our class in the Practical Government School. We have heard much about the ‘theory’ of running for office and creating good legislation, but to see in action, those who are doing what we heard about and to hear from them their depth of commitment was inspiring and motivating!”
With God’s help, these students ARE BEING EQUIPPED to go into all the world, including government, and make a positive difference for Christ and His Kingdom!
