The Distinguished Christian Statesman Award

In 1996, Dr. Kennedy and the board of directors of the Center for Christian Statesmanship established an annual award to promote faith, virtue, and excellence in public service. The Distinguished Christian Statesman award was created to recognize men and women who endeavor to live out their Christian faith in public life.

Our country was, indeed, conceived and birthed largely by Christian statesmen. Today I am afraid that it is choking and dying at the hands of mere politicians, and I think it is vital that we rekindle the flame of Christian Statesmanship in this country.
