In July, 2019, a memorial to law enforcement officers, donated by a local womens’ group, was erected outside the new police headquarters in Tega Cay, South Carolina.
A simple stone monument, the memorial included the inscription “Matthew 5:9” on the front and a simple prayer on the reverse side.
As is the trend of the day, someone complained about the religious references on public property. Bending to secular (and minority) will, city officials removed the monument.
The public outcry was swift and loud and received national attention.
Citizens and church groups, supported and advised by Faith Wins, protested in writing, on social media and in person with such God-inspired veracity that, ultimately, the memorial was restored to the property.
Except for the scripture reference on the front, the monument and the full prayer are now on public display.
Faith Wins sponsored a “Faith Leaders Briefing” on March 30, 2019 featuring Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Recognizing the need for a complete transformation of America’s judiciary with more conservative, constitutional judges, Faith Wins Founder and CEO Chad Connelly, has long advocated the necessity for state and national leaders to hear from and connect with pastors, churches and faith groups.
Leveraging his vast connections in government and, particularly, his close friendship with Sen. Graham, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chad arranged for the Vice President and the Senator to attend the briefing at Brush Creek Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina prior to a Graham campaign rally in nearby Greenville.
In his remarks, Vice President Pence told the group; “We know the truth is no podium the President and I ever stand behind will
be of greater consequence than your pulpits. No policy we ever enact will
be more meaningful than the ministries that you lead. No action will — we
take will ever be more powerful than the love and compassion and the prayers
for the American people.”
to the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement, an anti-Semitic attempt to
keep Kansas from investing in Israel, Faith Wins Founder and CEO Chad Connelly was a major organizer of
Kansans For Israel. In March, 2019, the
group staged a rally at the state capitol in Topeka.
