OUR STORY
The FAMiLY Leader was birthed in 1996 as the Iowa Family Policy Center through Dr. James Dobson’s vision of local organizations in each of America’s 50 states advocating for righteous, God-honoring public policy.

Through the years, however, we learned that enacting righteous policy falls short if there aren’t godly, righteous leaders in government. And further growth revealed that not even winning elections is enough to turn the tide of a culture in need of revival. Rediscovering Christ-like leadership and returning to the heart of God requires engagement from Christ’s Body, the Church.

Since 2010, The FAMiLY Leader has been pioneering a new (and, technically, very old) approach to engaging government – not from a policy-first perspective, and never from a partisan angle, but by coming alongside the Church in its gospel-first mission to transform lives and transform culture. The true power to change America lies in the Church becoming the salt and light Christ intended – in the home, in the community, and in government.
