A new educational Christian nonprofit group, Christians Engaged, has launched in the Lone Star State. Christians Engaged promises to motivate, educate, and activate Christians “from the pews to the polls.”

In a release on Wednesday morning, political consultant and former congressional candidate Bunni Pounds and former Texas Eagle Forum President Trayce Bradford announced the creation of the new organization.

“Now is the hour for the Church to rise up and take action,” said Pounds. “We are not just launching Christians Engaged for an impact in 2020, but for an impact in the decade to come. We are excited to engage young Christian evangelicals to go on mission with us.”

In addition to direct efforts to inform and motivate Christian voters, Christians Engaged also plans on bringing their mission directly to the church—developing educational and motivational programs for churches to encourage their congregants to pray for their nation, vote in elections, and engage in various forms of political activism.

“This is not a time to run and hide. This is a time for us as believers in Jesus to be on the frontlines for Texas and for America,” said Bradford.

The organization already has an active board of directors, comprised of leaders from business, political, and ministry backgrounds, including Congressman Michael Cloud.

“It is important that Christians are engaged,” said Cloud. “Our faith should influence every part of our lives—even our involvement in the political world.”
