DES MOINES, IOWA — An Evangelical pro-family policy organization known as The FAMiLY LEADER Foundation announced Friday that Vice President of the United States Mike Pence and ALL ISRAEL NEWS editor-in-chief Joel C. Rosenberg will be speaking at a special event on Thursday, Oct. 1st.
The event, “Faith in Leadership, America’s Need for Revival,” will take place at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines, Iowa.
“We are thrilled to welcome to Iowa such a prominent guest as the Vice President of the United States,” said Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER Foundation and a member of the ALL ISRAEL NEWS advisory board.
“This special event presents an unprecedented opportunity for Christian audiences to see how people of faith can have an impact in leading others and leading our nation,” Vander Plaats added. “We’re exceptionally honored that Vice President Pence has agreed to come, and we believe it will be an inspiring and encouraging event.”
Rosenberg said he was "deeply humbled" to be invited by his long time friend Vander Plaats to address this important event.
"It is not a campaign event or a partisan political event," Rosenberg noted. "Rather, it’s a unique opportunity to brief Evangelicals and others in the Midwest about the spiritual, cultural and economic challenges facing the United States and how urgently we need to turn back to God and embrace the biblical principles of revival found in 2 Chronicles 7:14.”
“But it’s also a time to brief Evangelicals on how to pray for Israel and her neighbors, the urgency of praying for the peace of Jerusalem and the enormous significance of the Abraham Accords, the historic peace treaties that were recently signed between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain,” Rosenberg added.
Rosenberg further noted that, “I’m especially looking forward to sharing the platform with my dear friend, Vice President Pence, whom I’ve know for nearly a decade, and other national leaders who are devout Evangelical Christians, deeply love Israel, and care so passionately about advancing peace in the Middle East.”
Other speakers will include:
Dr. Ben Carson, a Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree, one of the most distinguished neurosurgeons in American history, and currently the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Mike Lindell, the inventor and CEO of MyPillow and founder of the Lindell Recovery Network.
Bob Vander Plaats, President and CEO of THE FAMiLY LEADER, former gubernatorial candidate in Iowa, and a member of the ALL ISRAEL NEWS advisory board.
The “Faith in Leadership, America’s Need for Revival” event is not a campaign rally, but an opportunity to educate and inspire Christians toward active, civic engagement and leadership.
Funds raised from donations and sponsorships will support the ministry of The FAMiLY Leader Foundation.
The FAMiLY Leadership Foundation is the 501(c)3 arm of The FAMiLY Leader, a ministry that seeks to strengthen families by inspiring Christ-like leadership in the home, church, and government.
