Historically in America, our churches and pastors have played a significant role in shaping our government. Is that a thing of the past? Does it have to be over? How can we engage our churches and enlist the help of the staff? Where do we cross the line, or where do our expectations exceed reality? What should our expectations be? How can we partner with the church to achieve common goals? Is there a way to share our message without being off-putting? Are churches slaves to the Johnson Amendment and rendered ineffective? We’ve got a panel of pastors that will encourage you, advise you, and answer your questions. What do YOU want to know?
We will also be featuring David Halvorson, who is the secretary for Christians Engaged.
He will be sharing with us about what this organization believes in and how you can get involved!

About Dr. Rick Scarborough:
Dr. Rick Scarborough has worked with pastors and politicians since resigning First Baptist Church, Pearland in 2002, including conducting in depth Bibles studies with members of Congress and other governmental leaders in Washington DC, commuting regularly from his home in Nacogdoches, Texas. He is also the founder of Vision America and Vision America Action.
He is an ordained Southern Baptist Minister and served as the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Pearland, TX. from 1990 to 2002. During his time as senior pastor, he encouraged his congregation to live their faith and consider running for public office. The church was known as a soul winning church, baptizing over 2000 new converts and relocating to state-of-the-art facilities during that time. Eventually, his church members occupied most of the seats on the city council and local school board. Three church members later served with distinction in the Texas State Legislature, one of whom is now in the U.S. Congress, Congressman Randy Weber, who regularly hosted Bible studies for Dr. Scarborough in his office.
Dr. Scarborough is the author of four books, including the best-selling Enough is Enough (2008) and Mighty Men Stay on Track (2016). He has also written numerous booklets and pamphlets. He has written published articles and appeared on live broadcast media and radio, speaking about the need for pastors to engage the culture.
Dr. Scarborough received a B.S. from Houston Baptist University, M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a D. Min. from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary, with additional studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Tommye, have three children, one of whom is in Heaven and four grandchildren.
On June 30th Dr. Scarborough stepped down from leading Bible Studies in DC to devote full time to encouraging Pastors to engage the culture with Biblical truth, believing that Pastors alone can save America from moral disintegration. He will be traveling and speaking to thousands of Pastors in Texas and other battleground states between now and Election Day, 2020, calling on pastors to set aside labels and stand on Biblical truth, calling their people to vote their values on Election Day. He has formed a new non-profit organization to facilitate his mission which he named Recover America NOW! On October 1 he conducted his first Pastors Roundtable in Houston, Texas, featuring Retired Army General Jerry Boykin, former Commander of America’s Special Forces and Deputy Undersecretary of Defense under President G.W. Bush, with more than 125 pastors and leaders attending. He is planning more than 50 such events during 2021.
