Dean Welty of the Family Valley Forum speaks with Terry Beatley of No Excuse Ministry and member of the Viriginia Christian Advisory Board and Steve Waters who also serves on the Virginia Christian Advisory Board.
We know that “Prayer Changes Things”. The great heroes of the Bible and many of our first settlers and Founding Fathers were prayer warriors. But then what? Are we tempted to sit back and expect God to fix our problems or send someone else because we’re too busy – or maybe just plain afraid to get involved.
What is our responsibility as we face the great spiritual, social, economic, and political problems that we face in America today? How did one stay-at-home Mom help defeat a powerful pro-abortion politician? And what can we do to help rebuild the Judeo-Christian foundations on which America was established and has prospered?
Dean Welty is Founder and Director of the Valley Family Forum, a network of families in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia that works to defend and advance issues of Life, Faith, Family, and Freedom in the culture and in the public square.
He has developed and led numerous seminars on “America’s Godly Heritage” and “Capstone: The Christian’s Role in Culture and Public Policy”, hosted a weekly television program entitled “Valley Faith in Action”, and is co-host of a weekly radio program entitled “Crossroads: Where Faith and Culture Meet”.
He is a former public school teacher, overseas missionary, and senior diplomat with assignments in Asia, Washington, New York with the U.S. Mission to the UN, and as a Congressional Fellow on Capitol Hill.
Dean and his wife Janet live in Harrisonburg, VA.
