Christian Voter Clubs
Our Vision for Christian Voter Clubs
The first step to building is to introduce the vision, principles and program of the Party to thousands of Americans by hosting introductory meetings across the land. Here individuals and families take the first step by becoming subscribing members of the CLP. Interested persons are also encouraged to join Christian Voter Clubs. These may be unofficial organizations consisting of two or more persons who may or may not be CLP members, or chartered Christian Voter Clubs consisting of three or more CLP members. (A chartered Christian Voter Club may be established when at least three members in a local area apply to the National Party for a charter.) Here in the Christian voter clubs, educational video classes and service opportunities train members in America’s Christian history and her Biblical principles of self and civil government. Here also, members work together to prepare themselves for leadership opportunities, mastering various scholarship levels that qualify them as candidates for party leadership posts or for local, state or federal offices. The chartered Christian Voter Clubs are the center of party life and activity and the stepping-stone to the formation of state and county parties.
