Next Voter Guide:
Pikes Peak Region 2023 School Board Elections
(Coming October 8th)
I found Church Voter Guides when my pastor invited volunteers to set up a table at our church. I used to be a teacher, so I knew how important it is to elect the right school board. The guide helped me see what the candidates really care about. And the Christian candidates I supported actually won!

Lately, I’ve realized I can’t sit back and watch anymore. Things are getting too crazy NOT to step up. So I volunteered with Church Voter Guides. I was thrilled with the results of the school board election. Almost the whole city voted in people who share my values.

When is a Voter Guide
Not Just a Voter Guide?
Church Voter Guides’ primary mission is to activate the local Church to civic engagement in elections and beyond, and we are experiencing wonderful results! We especially thrive in municipal and county elections when there is very little known about many of the candidates because they have never run for office before, or have received very little press coverage. Our surveys educate the electorate, giving them confidence about which candidates share their values and thereby motivating citizens to the polls. In addition, local churches that previously would not get involved with politics are now promoting our 501c3-compliant Church Voter Guides to their members. We also turn our users into grassroots activists by providing them with promotional business cards and other materials to distribute. And unlike other organizations that provide election materials, we train teams to produce and promote their own local Voter Guides. Because “Together, We Win!”
Church Voter Guides creates a level playing field by asking each candidate in a particular race the same questions, giving them up to 120 words per answer, and publishing exactly what they submit. We’re nonpartisan and therefore “501c3 compliant”, so it’s easy and safe for churches and other 501c3 organizations to share us with their members.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
U.S. Declaration of Independence
And the government shall be upon His shoulder.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. U.S Constitution, 1st Amendment
The separation of Church and State is only a Constitutional concept in as much as the State is not to: promote an official state religion, make joining a specific religion a requirement for holding office, nor restrict the free exercise of any religion. Clearly, it was never the intention of our founders that religion, and specifically Christianity, would be banned from the public square.
More importantly, the separation of Church and State is not a Biblical concept. Jesus is Lord of all: that includes government and, even politics! In fact, the Kingdom of God is a government, and how better to bring it to earth than by impacting civil government, especially on the local level?
To be clear, just like the founding fathers of the United States, we are NOT advocating for an American Theocracy that would impose a specific religious practice on anyone, nor are we for legislating morality (as no law, not even God’s law, can change a man or woman’s heart.) Rather, we seek to equip Christians to fully engage in every aspect of our wonderful Republican form of government, and to utilize all of our rights in order to secure these rights for every single citizen and all future generations.
That’s where you come in! Join with Church Voter Guides as we connect Christian patriots and make a difference by activating and educating Christian voters.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
How the Activated Church Can Make a Big Difference
Voting is a simple, yet significant way to do something about public policy in our country. As people of faith, we will be held accountable for our actions, as well as our lack of action. (Luke 12:48)
By diligently learning, applying, and trusting God’s truths in every area of our lives, we can begin to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture’s non-biblical ideas.
Vote your values
The issues of the day change. Political parties and platforms change. God’s Word never changes. The vote of every Christian should be based on the principles of Scripture and not persuasive personalities.
Electing righteous leaders
Bad governance and our loss of freedom is the direct result of the church’s failure to disciple. When the citizenry do not seek to be obedient to God’s Law, they vote in wicked and corrupt candidates, who then trample underfoot the God-given liberties of the people.
