"We believe in an emerging generation of Christian leaders whose lives demonstrate vision, integrity and competence. It is these men and women who preach and teach the redeeming gospel of Jesus Christ, minister to widows and orphans, seek justice in and through public institutions, lead their nations through the debilitating morass of corruption, and in a thousand other ways take God’s truth into the public arena."
