Our allies the Pastors for Texas Children have repeatedly blocked vouchers in Texas, and they are now celebrating a significant boost in state funding for public schools. They have helped to start similar organizations in other states to protect the separation between church and state.

Dear Friend,

Our nation is wracked by a politics of division, where special interests and big donors set the political agenda for both sides of the aisle. State budgets, which should be reflections of our shared character and moral values, too often reflect the lie of scarcity, promoting an agenda of runaway privatization that harms God’s common good.

More often than not, this agenda involves slashing crucial funding for public education, cutting services to the most vulnerable among us: Texas’ children. 

But Pastors for Texas Children won’t give in to this agenda for one simple reason: we’re a Spirit-driven, people-powered organization, not beholden to any political party or special interest group. During this year’s legislative session, we successfully lobbied for legislative action on the pro-public education priorities that Texans and our legislators hold dear.

We still have a long way to go until we fully recognize robustly funded public schools as the cornerstone of our shared life together, but this was truly a transformative legislative session and a major step on our journey. And we couldn’t do it without you. 

Scripture reminds us that communities flourish when good stewards of God’s grace serve each other with the gifts we have received (1 Peter 4:10). And you have been a steward of PTC’s work and mission in the world. Please consider more ways to steward our work as our legislative witness winds down and our year-round work continues:

  1. Pray for us.Without your prayers and support, we could not do what we do in Texas and around the nation.
  2. Give a gift to sustain our work. A recurring gift of just $5/month helps us sustain our work and our witness.
  3. If you’re part of an organization, business, or church that would be interested in attending next week’s PTC Benefit Luncheon (6/18) at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, email Brandon Grebe today about reserving a spot.

May God bless you, friend.
