Norfolk Pastors Event SuccessfulMay 07, 2010
Pastors For Family Values, our clergy outreach arm, welcomed more than 60 pastors and ministry leaders last Wednesday for a luncheon at the SpringHill Suites in Norfolk, including more than a dozen new clergy. The program allowed them to learn more about The Family Foundation of Virginia and hear a powerful message by Chesapeake-based Exodus Faith Ministries founder and TFF Chaplain, Bishop E. W. Jackson, Sr., as well as a get legislative update from the recently completed session of the General Assembly. Bishop Jackson addressed the pastors about "standing for truth in a culture steeped deception." In addition, Family Foundation President Victoria Cobb presented an overview of our mission and vision, and the importance of pastors to engage in the public square over the major cultural and social issues of the day. The feedback was positive and the pastors renewed their commitment to counter a "new normal" that rationalizes the debasing of society and culture, often aided and abetted by public institutions and public policy, as well as media — all of which combine to obfuscate the truth and discredit traditional values. We expect to have a video of Bishop Jackson's speech to post here soon.
