The fourteen ministers and faith leaders represent all corners of the Congressional
district and are strongly supportive of Ryan’s commitment to faith and freedom.
Ryan Chamberlin today announced the leadership of his Faith Coalition, which will advise him on matters related to Freedom to Worship and re-establishing our national perspective to be “one nation under God.”
“Our land was sought out by courageous men and women who wanted relief from persecution and the freedom to worship as they saw best,” said candidate Ryan Chamberlin. “The American idea of freedom wasn’t based on your bloodline or your inheritance. It was based on the premise that we are created equal in the image of God. Freedom to Worship is a bedrock right. While our founding fathers struggled against national churches and hostile monarchies, today our struggle comes from within. Without renewed commitment and a willingness to fight, we will see our rights erode more and more each year.”
“I have enjoyed being a spiritual leader to Ryan Chamberlin, his wife Jenny, and their family more than 30 years,” said Bishop James Varnum. “Ryan Chamberlin is faithful to his faith, unmovable in his character, and unchanging in his conservative, Christian values.”
The fourteen members of the coalition have served in ministry for decades and are respected leaders throughout the Congressional district. Each brings special perspectives to matters of faith within their distinct communities.
