To change and shape the moral culture of our communities in California. The strategy is to equip pastors as culture changers by sending them to Washington, D.C and Sacramento, California for annual Watchmen on the Wall conferences. These events have and are building a network with those pastors to provide resources throughout the year. The movement is growing and started with 6 pastors attending in 2014, 27 pastors in 2015, and 70 pastors in 2016. The D.C. conference is a boot camp where pastors hear high profile leaders share about the current spiritual crisis and activate pastors to change culture. Pastors then return to California on fire to preach Jesus boldly and speak a biblical worldview to their congregations. The inaugural Sacramento event will take place in 2017.
Church United is strategically inviting pastors of influence in regions across the state of California to attend the D.C. and Sacramento events and then selects key pastors to receive scholarships for both conferences.
The fruit from the Washington, D.C. has been profound! Pastors are bringing other pastors with them, sharing their transforming experience, and then activating other pastors and their congregations tenfold.
May 25, 2016: A handful of us laid hands on U.S Senator John Thune as we prayed for him and our country. You can’t see the chairs lined against the walls of the conference room, but they were led with pastors.
The Conferences focus on the spiritual heritage of our county and our state with nationally known speakers like David Barton and elected officials (Senators, Representatives and Assemblymen) who fear the Lord and vote a biblical worldview.
Getting pastors to D.C. is the igniting catalyst! A scholarship to send a pastor(s) to D.C. and Sacramento will provide more than just attendance at the annual Watchmen events. Pastor Jim Domen’s role is to build and develop an ongoing relationship with these pastors of influence statewide. Through these friendships he’s able to host regional and monthly meetings to stoke the fire that begun in D.C. and Sacramento to help facilitate cultural change.
After the conferences the connection points for California pastors are the regional briefings. They reconnect their pastoral relationships, recruit other pastors from their area, and follow the influential regional pastors and are equipped with what is happening with current events.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.1 Timothy 2:1-4
