Our team

We are a group of volunteers through the HCBC Community Impact Ministry committed in equipping the body of Christ with a nonpartisan ministry to learn more about the civic arena in order to serve with the wisdom and compassion of Christ.  Our planning team is a group of volunteers that has over a combined 100 years of civic experience at all 3 levels of government, as well as elected officials. We are always looking for new volunteers for the team for newsletter editing/reporting, facilitating roundtables and Truth Project classes, equip e-teams keeping track of local, state and federal issues and more!

Others have come on board, never having been in the civic arena, and are learning as they go!
