Excellent. Love the story of God working in the world through two extraordinary men of God. Victory in Jesus name! – Bayley Bullock 

In 1981, both President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II were shot. Both men had the same impression: “God spared my life for a reason!” When the two men, an actor turned politician who became President and a Polish World War II survivor turned priest who became Pope, met after their recovery they decided to work together to end the Cold War. Their story is being shared in a movie: The Divine Plan: scheduled to be released in November on the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Like the alliance between President Reagan and Pope John Paul II we need to forge Christian Alliances to transform our culture. When Christians band together and form holy alliances, they can transform cities and cultures. Our Culture needs transformation. It is too big for one man, one group or one institution. Will you join us to be part of the transformation of our region?
