Pastors, Another Election June 15 – Lead Voters To Not Become Weary!

Texas has another Important Election on June 15, 2024 – GOTV!

The first step we recommend is for the Pastor to appoint a permanent Citizenship Ministry director for this ministry as described in Christian Citizenship 101 (available at www.uspastorcouncil.org, request by emailing info@uspastorcouncil.org or by calling the HAPC office at 832-688-9166).

Early Voting began June 3 for a Special Runoff Election to to elect two remaining Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) Director positions. Early Voting ends on June 11 and Election Day is June 15!!

PLEASE ANNOUNCE AND POST THIS INFO FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS’ SERVICES!!

It is very important to know that ALL voters in Harris County can vote on the HCAD positions and these positions will have major impact on how the property appraisals are conducted – and impacting whether our families can afford to live in their own homes!

SPECIAL NOTE:  Longtime Houston Area Pastor Council leader Ericka McCrutcheon is running for the HCAD Director Place 3 position and has the enthusiastic support of HAPC Executive Director Rev. Dave Welch!

Why a Political Party’s Platform is to Them What the Bible is to the Church

In addition to casting a prayerful, informed vote for the Primary Election, a second and critical opportunity for citizens to have a profound influence is to attend the precinct (neighborhood) convention that will normally be held the evening of the Primary Election. A small percentage of voters have a major impact on the two major action items:  1) writing the party platform principles and 2) choosing state and national party leadership who will be responsible for enlisting and supporting candidates based on those principles.

Premise to Consider:  A political party’s platform is to the party what the Bible is to the Church – it declares core principles that provide an anchor to the collective actions, and is the baseline by which the voters of that party may hold the elected officials of that party accountable.
