Mission Statement

To respond to the spiritual problems threatening our communities & cities

Background Statement

Vision Explained: 

Church United is changing and shaping the moral culture of our communities in California. The strategy is to equip pastors as culture-changers by sending them to Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, California for annual Awakening Tours. These events have built a 500 (and growing) California pastoral network. The tours are followed by Regional Briefings and further-developing personal relationships amongst Regional Pastors of Influence.

Church United is igniting the fire and desire for change in pastors who are attending the tours. Watch the Washington, D.C. 2017 video to catch a glimpse of the pastoral resurgence happening in California by clicking here.

Church United is strategically inviting Pastors of Regional Influence across the State of California to attend the Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, California events – and then selecting key pastors to receive scholarships for both conferences.

The fruit from the Washington, D.C. and Sacramento Awakening Tours has been profound! Pastors are sharing their transformational experiences by bringing other pastors with them, and then activating other pastors and their congregations tenfold. Some of the amazing results are transforming lives for Jesus and positively impacting numerous communities! Watch the Church United Impact videos to see how Church United stops evil, promotes good, stands up against injustice, and implements policies that represent a biblical worldview.

Mission Explained:
Each city has different spiritual problems, and pastors know how to lead their churches in addressing those needs. The results from the Awakening Tours are amazingly profound! Pastors are encouraging other pastors and their congregations to engage in their city’s public square, as well as at the county and state levels.

Getting pastors to Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, California is the igniting catalyst! A scholarship to send a pastor(s) to D.C. and Sacramento will provide more than just attendance at the annual Watchmen events. The Founder's role is to build and develop ongoing relationships with these Pastors of Influence statewide. Through these friendships, he is able to host regional and monthly meetings to stoke the fire that originated in D.C. and Sacramento in order to help facilitate cultural change in California.

After the conferences, the connection points for California pastors are the Regional Briefings. These Briefings reconnect pastoral relationships, recruit other pastors from the area, and ensure that Influential Regional pastors are up-to-date with current events.

Awakening Tours: Sacramento & Washington, D.C.

    1. California Capitol

      This project engages pastors at the state level – teaching how bills become law through the committee and lobby processes, how to influence elected officials to vote through the legislative process, how to strategically target committee members, and understanding the voter initiative process. In February 2017, Church United did a pilot project at California’s Capitol with 24 California pastors of regional influence (there was no expense to the pastor or his/her church). The pastors were awoken! Almost all confessed they had neglected Paul’s command to pray for those in authority (1 Timothy 2) and did not even know the names of their California Senator or Assemblyman. The pastors heard from godly, conservative Senators and Assemblymen with biblical worldviews and realized they needed to stand with the godly elected people in California’s Capitol. The California regional pastors of influence were moved to action! Almost all of them met with their Assemblymen and Senator and prayed with them for the first time. The pastors also scheduled future meetings in their districts to continue to build relationships. The regional pastors of influence also saw the enormous evil facing California from the legislature. Over 200 California pastors attended the Awakening Tour Sacramento in 2018.

  1. Washington, D.C.

  2. This project engages pastors at the federal level – teaching how bills become law through the committee and lobby processes. Pastors learn of our Nation’s spiritual heritage during an after hours Capitol tour and pray on the floors of the Senate and House, attend and worship inside the United States Capitol during the Capitol Worship Service for Congress members only, meet privately with their district member of The House of Representatives, speakers from United States Senator and House of Representatives, hear from experts dealing with the issues affecting
