There are many men and women who influence the way we think and make decisions in our daily lives. Some of these leaders or “influencers” are not necessarily people in authority. There are many good, honest and well-intentioned leaders; however, there are also many leaders that don’t have the best intentions for us. These same people are moved by power, fame, or financial motivations. It’s important that we tell the difference between someone who just wants our applause and money and someone who is hands on when it is needed to work hard to establish Christian values in this country. Here are six Christian leaders who are shaping the future of America. They are great examples of people who we can admire and emulate. They may not be perfect, but their trajectory and the strength of their convictions can be seen in their commitment to teaching, defending family values, promoting our freedom to worship and nurturing our faith.
