What principles do you want our next elected leaders to remember as they enter office?

Here are your responses:

  • 2 Chronicles 7:14. "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 

  • "Willingness to listen to opposition, morality, integrity, intelligent, prepared to change with situations."

  • "I would say to them, put God first. Then be honest and care for and about others. We are all individuals which makes us unique with different perspectives. Be open minded - listening to and accepting other ideas."

  • "Please be humble as you ask God each day to guide your ways and remember to give Him thanks for all our blessings."

  • "I would refer them to Micah 6:8. The verse we close our worship service with each week!" Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God!

  • "You’re accountable to God and your constituents for all the decisions you make."

  • "A real leader will seek to honor God in all that he or she does." 

  • “Humble yourself before God and pray for His wisdom in all things when making impactful decisions effecting your constituents."

  • "Jesus was pretty clear on what's important for a leader: Matthew 22:36-40- "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? " Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hangs on these two commandments." So, Love, the kind of Love that Jesus requires of us to me is the most important principle for a leader. Another verse says it all as well: 1 Corinthians 16:14: "Let everything you do be done in Love." "
  • "Be accountable for your actions by doing the best you can with what you have. It is your responsibility to speak up, advocate & uplift those who do not have the power or agency to do so for themselves."
