Friends and Supporters -
We won!!! Wow! HUGE NEWS!
The IRS just reversed their decision and granted us our 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. This decision affects every donation that has been given to this organization since July 2019 when we incorporated with the state of Texas. You can now write them off as charitable contributions.
Our full press release with First Liberty is below but first I want to say a few words on behalf of Christians Engaged and our leadership.
We are incredibly thankful to the IRS for doing the right thing, and we look forward to continuing our mission of educating more followers of Jesus to pray for our nation and to be civically engaged. When we stand up, our republic works for all Americans!
Thank you to every person who PRAYED, wrote letters to the IRS, signed our petitions, shared our story with news outlets or friends, and supporters who trusted us through this "crisis" by helping us pivot and reorganize for more impact in Texas and around the nation.
I want to personally thank Congressman Michael and Rosel Cloud for serving on our advisory board. Every national news story mentioned Congressman Cloud's name and the Cloud family's participation and partnership in this ministry means the world to me.
Also Congressman Chip Roy, Senator Mike Lee, Senator Ted Cruz and others who wrote the letter to the IRS Commissioner concerning this case. Thank YOU!
To Congressman Kevin Brady and Congressman Jim Jordan who contacted the Treasury Department - thank you!
We could NOT have appealed this decision without the help of First Liberty Institute, our incredible legal counsel Lea Patterson, and their amazing media team. They even had a team member who prayed for me on a daily basis and prayed over us before every media appearance. First Liberty is the real deal!
Big thank you to our Vice President Trayce Bradford, our board of directors and advisory board for Christians Engaged that said "Let's stand up and fight this!" Thank you all.
Together we, as believers in Jesus, have won today. This is a victory not only for Christians Engaged but for every Christian organization around America that teaches the Bible and cares about the future of our great nation.
I am so so thankful for all of you! Onward.
For the Kingdom and Liberty -
President of Christians Engaged
