Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network ‘Ministers Together’ Events Biblically Link Pastors and Elected Officials to Follow in the Footsteps of the Founders

PHILADELPHIA—The Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network (PPN, www.papastors.net) is planning another breakfast event later this month specifically designed to instruct pastors and elected officials of the biblical model embraced by America’s founders and how to bring a Bible focus to today’s most pressing issues. This event comes after a very successful gathering last week of legislators and pastors, totaling approximately seventy attendees including PA House Members and Senators.

Through its Ministers Together initiative, PPN is re-establishing the biblically and historically correct relationship between “Church and State,” and creating opportunities to build relationships between pastors and elected officials on a biblical, not political, basis.

“The Ministers Together model is not only biblical, it is fully consistent with our nation’s history and  with our United States and State Constitutions,” said Sam Rohrer, President of PPN and the American Pastors’ Network (APN, www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net). “It was clearly the intent of our Founders and designed within our Constitution to keep government out of religion, not to keep God  and biblical values out of government or the way our nation is to be  governed.”

The Ministers Together effort rebuilds the biblical worldview perspective as ordained by God. This view is that those in the pulpit are “Ministers of God” and called by God to occupy a position ordained of God. They uniquely possess the command to “Preach the Word” (II Tim. 4:2) and are given the authority to speak the Truth—not only to their local congregations but also in the public square. This biblical worldview also holds that those in elected office are not just “politicians,” but also occupy an equally ordained position as “Ministers of God,” with the clear job description as servants of God and God’s servants to the people. (Rom 13:4).

The second Ministers Together event of 2014 is a breakfast set for February 27 in Greensburg, Pa. To find out more information and to register if you are a pastor or legislator, visit www.papastors.net/events.
