Winter 2017 Trip
California Regional Pastors of Influence meeting in the Eureka room. California State Capitol, February 2017
The video below is from the February 27-28, 2017, inaugural trip to California’s State Capitol. Twenty-foug pastors of regional California influence representing Northern California, San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley and Southern California counties participated in praying with their legislators.
Marti & I want to thank you for giving us the privilege to join you and the other pastors in Sacramento for the Watchmen West gathering. The hotel accommodations as well as the meals were absolutely first-class. The hotel’s proximity to the Capitol building took it all to another level!!! The schedule was well thought-through and afforded us opportunities to hear the legislators’ and other leaders’ points of view as to what is happening in California and how specifically we can pray for “those in authority.” In fact, it was a special privilege to pray on the floor of the Senate – – as well as to pray over you in your new role with Church United. You have done a great job on this inaugural trip to Sacramento. Please pass on our appreciation to the donors who made all of this possible as we try to work together in building Christ’s Kingdom here in California.Pastor Sherman Williams, Founder, City Serve San Francisco Bay Area
This has to be one of the best organized and well thought out trips that I’ve been a part of in recent years. I’ll have to be honest with you I have not been that optimistic about changing California after what we’ve been through in the last several years. But after hearing from our state legislators I do have a ray of optimism. I do believe that your strategy for Church United can work. The thing that made the difference for me was seeing the face of the pastors that were with us there in Sacramento. I could see that for many of them the light came on. They got it. They now see how engagement is so important and that standing United with fellow pastors is essential. There is one thing to talk about changing Sacramento but when you take a group of pastors to Sacramento and let them walk the halls of our capital and meet with our leaders and hear directly from them I believe it has an impact upon them that they will not forget and will be multiplied as they go back and share with their congregations and other pastors. You and Church United are making a difference.
I’m looking forward to see what God is going to do as you take a record number of pastors from California to our nation’s capital here in a few weeks. I do believe this is a very good investment of time and of money to help bring about a change in California. As we know it must start in the pulpit.Pastor of Regional Influence Jim Franklin, Senior Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Fresno, CA
I would like to express my deep appreciation for the two days, February 27 & 28, in the state capitol. To meet with Assembly member Phillip Chen was very refreshing. I thank God for using you to bring him to faith in Jesus Christ. The meeting with State Senator John Moorlach, was inspiring and very informative. It renewed by faith in California. We are very fortunate to have Pastor Mike Shreve on location as our missionary on the grounds. The highlight for me was praying with a group of Pastors on the floor of the assembly, followed by the opportunity to pray for the Members in Sacramento. Of course meeting with other faith leaders throughout California was rewarding. As a Pastor and Council member, it was really helpful. My thanks to Church United for giving us such a life changing opportunity.Bishop & City Councilman Milton S. Herring, I, Living Word Church, Torrance, CA
One week ago, our stirring, informational excursion to the California State Capitol culminated. All week long, I have pondered over the striking messages shared by Christ-loving legislators and concerned speakers. You could not has assembled a more articulate and knowledgeable group to inform the pastors. The charge to act now could never have launched so passionately without your invitation to meet the legislators and witness the “goings on” in Sacramento first hand.Barbara Lesure, Culture Impact Team Coordinator, Crescenta Valley Foursquare Church, La Crescenta, CA
