For the past 57 years the United States of America has endured a coordinated effort to completely secularize the nation and push the mention of God out of the public square. The National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL) is forming to unite local, state and federal elected officials together in support of safeguarding the Judeo-Christian foundation of the United States of America, promoting religious liberty and freedom around the world, debating major policy issues facing our nation from a Biblical worldview, and promulgating model laws, statutes, ordinances and resolutions representing the Christian worldview in public policy.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He chose for His inheritance.” Psalm 33:12
The federal courts of America have been used to chip away at the Judeo-Christian foundation of our nation, reverence for God, and the Bible. Think for a moment how many damaging blows the U.S. Supreme Court has made against the moral fabric of our society:
In 1962 the U.S. Supreme Court declared teachers could no longer pray with students.
In 1963 they ruled that the Bible could not be read for instruction by teachers to their students.
In 1973 the Court declared that the killing of innocent little babies through abortion was legal. Now over 60,000,000 innocent little babies have been slaughtered in the United States.
In 1980 they declared that displaying the Ten Commandments was inappropriate in our public schools and the news is now full of horrible acts of violence and crime that occurs on school campuses around the nation.
In 2015 the U.S. Supreme Court declared that marriage - ordained by God as holy - was no longer just between one man and one woman, thereby enshrining into American law that which God calls sin and an abomination.
There has been a war on Christianity in our nation using the judicial branch of government that was never intended to legislate or make laws for the people. Our U.S. Constitution is in jeopardy when the executive branch and legislative branches of government allow the judiciary to revolutionize our nation by judicial edict. Are our schools, communities, states and our nation better off today today since the federal courts have sought to destroy the Judeo-Christian foundation of our nation? No, they are not. We have to work together now to save our nation.
We are asking you to join with us in support of the formation of the NACL to help pay for the organization’s startup expenses and initial costs. Your donation will help Christian Lawmakers around the nation unite together as never before. Every person who donates during the crowdfunding effort will ultimately be eligible to become CHARTER SUPPORTING MEMBERS and qualify for status in the NACL FOUNDERS CLUB. Please help us today with a gift of any amount.
There are 535 federal elected lawmakers serving in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. There are over 7,000 state senators and state representatives serving in legislatures in our individual states. There are over 39,000 county elected officials and when you count all elected officials at all levels of government in the United States, you actually come up with over 500,000 elected offices in our nation according to a recent study. If we want godly laws in our nation, we must elect godly leaders. Please help us with this effort and make history by donating to help form the only known National Association of Christian Lawmakers ever formed in the United States.
The National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL) has been formed to be a functioning national legislative organization with a leadership structure populated by Christian lawmakers from the local, state and federal levels. We are bringing together lawmakers from all over the United States at every level to unite together for discussion, debate and action on major policy issues from a Biblical worldview. We will propose model statutes, resolutions, ordinances and laws to ensure the Judeo-Christian foundation of our nation is safeguarded and properly reflected in our body of law today. No other organization has done this before or is currently doing this in our country today. Our goal is to organize Christian lawmakers into a formidable force in support of clear Biblical principles so that our nation lives up to its national motto “In God We Trust”.
HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED
The NACL is a national organization that will serve lawmakers at every level all over the United States of America. Our initial goal is $500,000. The money will be used for initial startup costs and expense as outlined in our initial budget proposal shown here:
Our goal is to organize Christian lawmakers into a formidable force that will steer our nation back towards God. To meet that need the NACL will:
1. Host an inaugural NACL national meeting in 2020 to formally launch the organization - we welcome sponsors who share our vision.
2. Establish an online headquarters for Christian lawmakers and supporters to share ideas and connect people of faith all across the country.
3. Develop extensive issue research, an online policy library, and task forces to help lawmakers push back on bad legislation.
4. Create executive-level leadership training for lawmakers and prospective lawmakers to train them how to endure attacks from the Left.
5. Mobilize the grassroots to support the legislative and policy efforts of Christian lawmakers at the local, state and federal levels.

BACKGROUND, STATUS AND LEADERSHIP
The NACL was announced in November 2018, incorporated in 2019 as a non-profit in the state of Arkansas and is now being organized with a national board of advisers, governing board and state chairmen serving around the country.
The NACL is also in the process of applying for 501(c)3 non-profit tax exempt status from the IRS. Until that tax exempt status is officially approved, Holy Ghost Ministries, Inc. (HGM) is serving as a FISCAL SPONSOR for the NACL while the organization is in the startup phase. When the NACL has received official recognition from the IRS that it is approved as a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization, all fundraising efforts for the NACL will then be done through the NACL and not HGM. Holy Ghost Ministries received its official IRS 501(c)3 recognition in 2008: www.holyghostministries.org
All donations given to Holy Ghost Ministries for the startup expenses and support of NACL will be tax deductible under IRS guidelines.
The IRS allows a fiscal sponsor to be used in this manner during the initial startup of a new charitable organization. The fiscal sponsor, in this case Holy Ghost Ministries, will serve as the administrative "home" of the cause, which is the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. Charitable contributions are given to a fiscal sponsor, which then grants them to support the cause. A fiscal sponsor agreement allows a nonprofit organization to provide fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to help build the capacity of charitable projects like the NACL until the new organization receives official IRS approval as a 501(c)3.
