The “Courageous” Leadership Award for the 2012 Virginia General Assembly session for members of the Senate was presented to Senators Phillip P. Puckett (D-38th) and Charles J. Colgan (D-29th).

Both of these long-serving members of the Virginia Senate, under much duress, broke rank with their party and voted for positive pro-family, pro-life legislation.

The Pastor’s Leadership Award was awarded to Bishop Dr. Joseph D. Henderson, Sr. and the Bragg Hill Family Life Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Bishop Henderson’s leadership contributed greatly to the “changing of the old guard” in the Virginia Senate. The “changing of the old guard” in the Senate allowed for passage of long delayed pro-family, pro-life, “pro-Virginia” legislation. (more photos below)

The Virginia Christian Alliance’s Affiliate of the Year Award was presented to No Excuse Ministries and its founder, Mrs. Terry Beatley.

Cuccinelli, 5 legislators honored by Christian Alliance

Laura Vozzella of the Washington Post:

The Virginia Christian Alliance has honored Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) and five legislators who it said stood firmly for “pro-family, pro-life” legislation during this year’s General Assembly session.

(Steve Helber – AP) It was the first time that the four-year-old organization, which has carved out a niche to the right of the conservative Family Foundation of Virginia, has given awards to elected leaders. And it was another indication that the firebrand attorney general has the support of staunch conservatives over Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, his low-key rival for the Republican nomination in the 2013 governor’s race..Read More
