The Leadership at Fox Lake Community Church decided to call this year “The Year of Family Discipleship”. Pastor Wayne purchased a copies of Family Driven Faith: Doing What It Takes to Raise Sons and Daughters Who Walk with God by Voddie Bacham for every family in the Church to help clarify what we mean by “Family Discipleship”. Voddie advocates what is called the Family Integrated Church model.

  1. do you happen to know how many of the men at the constitutional convention of 1787 were ministers – preachers – etc? I thought I had read 28, but am out tying to find that info. And as you point out, 3 Deists.

    thanks –

  2. John,

    To answer your question:

    Abraham Baldwin, 1754 to 1807, spent time as a Clergyman and as a Chaplain: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Baldwin

    He was the only clergyman, who signed the Constitution.

    However, there were those signers in charge of Christian ministries:

    John Jay 1745 to 1829, who was also the first chief justice of the Supreme Court was president of the American Bible Society and was a member of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions.

    James McHenry 1753 to 1816, was the president of the Baltimore Bible Society. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_McHenry

    Charles Cotesworth Pinckney 1746 to 1829, was president of the Charleston Bible Society and Vice President of the American Bible Society.

    William Samuel Johnson 1727 to 1819, helped organize the Protestant Episcopal Church in America.

    Rufus King, 1755 to 1827, was a supporter of the New York Bible and Common Prayer Book Society, and manager of the American Bible Society

    John Langdon, 1741 to 1819, was the Vice President of the American Bible Society

    Also did you know:

    That Alexander Hamilton (a constitutional signer as well), 1757 to 1804, proposed the formation of the Christian Constitutional Society. http://www.christianconstitutionalsociety.org/ahamiltonccs.htm

    Also that John Witherspoon 1723 to 1794, (who was hugely influential on the founders) was the only clergyman to sign the Declaration of Independence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Witherspoon

    Hope that helps,

    Lar
