The Church Ambassador Network of Kansas is an initiative of Kansas Family Foundation, the 501(c)(3) organization associated with Kansas Family Voice. The Church Ambassador Network of Kansas is part of a nationwide network that was started in Iowa in 2014 with a vision of being in all 50 states.
Inspiring the Church to engage government for the advance of God’s Kingdom!
A Kansas where the Church influences society with biblical truth in every school district, city, county, and the three branches of Kansas state government.
Jesus is the sole means of redemption, reconciliation, and restoration through His work on the Cross and resurrection. We believe transformation happens as people see Christ accurately and rightly value Him. That is why Christ must be at the center of everything that we do. It is God’s Word that gives us the most clear and concrete picture of Jesus. Because of that, we aim to lift up God’s Word in everything we do.
God’s grace through Jesus Christ changes everything and is the basis and power of our personal lives and ministry. In a place where political battles make grace all the rarer, we aim to be motivated by grace and to joyfully give grace away to one another.
Christ does not fit into any political ideology. His Kingdom is an eternal kingdom not of this world. As His ambassadors, it is important that we keep that independent voice. We are not bipartisan, which is allegiance to both sides. Neither are we partisan, which is allegiant to one. We are non-partisan, which is allegiant to no political party.
We move at the speed of relationship through the Holy Spirit’s leading. We move at the speed of intentional relationships with both the Church and the government. It is in relationship that people share their lives with one another. It is the heart of the Church Ambassador Network to move beyond the surface level and to engage in deeper Christ-centered relationships that lead to changed lives.
Christ created the Church as a diverse body, and He designed both the institution of God’s Church and government. Just as every part of the body is needed, so is each institution. It is the heart of the Church Ambassador Network to build partnerships between churches and between the Church and government to serve people and bring Christ glory.
Our mission is dependent on prayer, knowing God moves through and changes lives through prayer. We pray collectively as the Church that God would move in the heart of “kings,” bring revival to His Church, and re-ignite its flame for the gospel and the Great Commission.
WHAT WE DO
- Provide guidance and training for establishing a relationship with governing authorities both locally and statewide;
- Model how to share Scripture, share Jesus, listen, and pray;
- Understand the rhythms of the governing process both in Topeka and the local level. We want to make these meetings professional and God-honoring;
- Introduce pastors to legislators and coordinate with pastors to come to Topeka when the legislators are in session and coordinate local visits at home districts; and
- Introduce church members to governing authorities in school districts, cities, and counties to advance God’s kingdom.
