ICYMI: Senator Scott Receives Distinguished Christian Statesman Award
WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) was presented with the 27th Annual Distinguished Christian Statesman Award. Given annually by the D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship since 1996, this award seeks to honor individuals who combine excellence in public service with character and faith in God.
“We should stop and thank the Lord that we live in an America, where any kid from any zip code can rise beyond their circumstances and achieve their version of the American Dream. That’s possible because our founding fathers crafted a country based on a rock, the Lord God,”said Senator Scott during his acceptance speech. “We have troubles. We have challenges. We have things that make us fearful in this nation, but remember – greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
“The future of our nation depends in large part on the character and integrity of our leaders,” said Dr. Rob Pacienza, Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and President and CEO of D. James Kennedy Ministries. “We are grateful for Sen. Scott’s commitment to stand boldly for truth and righteousness in his service to God and our nation and are honored to present him with this year’s Distinguished Christian Statesman Award.”
