Texas Values Gala
On November 30th, I was honored to be recognized by Texas Values, not only as a Faith and Family Champion for the 4th session in a row, but also as the recipient of the Faithful Servant Award for my work on Senate Bill 14, which put an end to the gender mutilation of children in the State of Texas.
Texas Values is an organization whose mission is to preserve and advance a culture of family values in our state. They are involved in policy research, grassroots mobilization, and voter education.
U.S. Pastor Council Luncheon
This month was the U.S. Pastor Council’s luncheon in Houston, Texas. During this luncheon, I was honored to be awarded the “Faith in Action” award for my work in ending childhood gender mutilation. To God be the glory!
Houston Area Pastor Council was founded in 2003 by a group of thirteen pastors as an interdenominational, inter-racial coalition of senior pastors who came together to bring a united, Biblical voice to the city, state and nation.
Reelection to House District 130
On November 11th, I filed for reelection to HD130 as your State Representative. Serving our community has been a tremendous honor, and as I seek your support once again, I am filled with gratitude for the trust you have placed in me.
I am eager to continue building upon the foundation we’ve laid together and persist in achieving more conservative victories that align with our shared values. As we navigate the path ahead, I remain dedicated to the service of our community and will work tirelessly to champion the causes that matter most to you.
I am excited about the prospect of continuing this journey with your support, and I look forward to the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Together, let’s forge a future that reflects the strength, resilience, and shared vision of our community.
