American Pastors’ Network Looks to Support More Church Leaders with Formation of State Chapters in 2014

PHILADELPHIA—Part of the mission of the American Pastors’ Network (APN, is to “identify, encourage, equip, educate and network pastors and church members” who will “Stand in the Gap for Truth” across the nation.

To realize this mission, APN hopes to establish additional state chapters around the country, which will operate much like the Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network (PPN,, led by President Sam Rohrer, who also leads APN, and the North Carolina Pastors’ Network (NCPN,, led by President David Kistler. APN also seeks to provide local pastors with the resources they need to support their congregations as well as serve as salt and light in their communities.

“We have seen so much good come from networking pastors and bringing them together in Pennsylvania and North Carolina,” Rohrer said. “These pastors are extremely blessed to be able to interact with their peers, get support, pray together and lean on one another as they lead their flocks. It’s our hope that APN will be able to create more of these state chapters so we can better equip pastors and lead them to more engaged service within their communities, especially regarding the timely topics that shape our daily conversations and cause us to think more deeply about the U.S. Constitution and its precepts.”

In 2014, Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network has also been working to bridge the gap between Church and State through its new Ministers Together project. With events around the state, from Kutztown to Greensburg, Ministers Together has a mission to create opportunities to build relationships between pastors and elected officials on a biblical rather than political basis.

Through these events, PPN hopes to rebuild the biblical worldview perspective as ordained by God. PPN believes that those in the pulpit are “Ministers of God,” called by Him to preach the Word and speak the Truth in the public square. Likewise, those elected to office are not just “politicians” but occupy an equally ordained position as “Ministers of God,” with the clear job description of servants of God and God’s servants to the people.

The American Pastors’ Network has a mission to identify, encourage, equip, educate and network pastors and church members to “Stand in the Gap for Truth” across the nation while providing Bible-based and constitutionally consistent analysis and recommendations on matters of public policy.

APN is the largest, national network of pastors who believe in the authority of scripture, who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to public policy, and who are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders and mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process. A new web site will soon be unveiled at

The Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network is a group of biblically faithful clergy and church liaisons whose objective is to build a permanent infrastructure of like-minded clergy who affirm the authority of Scripture, take seriously Jesus’ command to be the “salt and light” to the culture, encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues; examine public policy issues without politicizing their pulpits and engage their congregations in taking part in our political process on a non-partisan basis.
