Dear Fellow Patriots,
I founded STAND on July 9, 2009, six months after President Barack Obama took office. He promised the “fundamental transformation” of the United States of America. He almost got the job done, and had Hillary Clinton been elected, America as we have known it might have been lost forever.
While I know that it took millions of Americans praying, working and sacrificing to pull our country back from the brink, STAND played a vital role. We exposed the lies and hypocrisy of the left through the entire Obama administration. When it was time to elect a new President, we did a nation wide bus tour in cooperation with Vision America, meeting and speaking to hundreds of Pastors in key states.
We challenged the left’s racial narrative by advertising on radio stations with large black audiences. We reached out to evangelicals by the millions through social media.
In the end, through a team effort which included many others, evangelicals turned out in record numbers. It is also worth noting that black men voted in unusually high numbers for President Trump, and Hillary Clinton underperformed in the black community.
The mainstream media said she had a 96% chance of winning. Instead she went down to a stunning and decisive defeat.
As nonprofits, we did not endorse a candidate. Christians can think for themselves. We simply laid out the issues and values which should inform our vote. We passed out objective voter guides setting forth differences. We helped them understand the issues at stake. We urged people to register and made the spiritual case for why Christians must vote.
This upcoming 2018 election is just as critical as 2016. The left has become even more unhinged and irrational than ever before. Their real hatred is for anything or anyone who upholds or defends an historic Judeo-Christian perspective on America or our future.
This is first and foremost a spiritual battle. That is why Pastors, churches and individual Christians must be in the forefront. We understand what others do not:
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:12-13
We do not quit. We stand! Stand with me!
I am not retiring or shrinking into the background. I still have plenty to say about the direction of my country and I will never be silent. We are continuing our Movement to Awaken America to believe again.
Believe in God! Believe in our country! Believe in each other!
The stakes in 2018 are as enormous as they were in 2016. The left are like rabid animals trying to tear President Trump apart and overthrow his presidency. That’s right - not just undermine, but overthrow. They are a threat to the stability and order of our Constitutional system. They must be stopped.
As of now and continuing through Election Day, November 6, I will be on a Campaign To Awaken The Church in the battle ground states of Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee and Florida. Part of our strategy will include a presentation called The “Truth in Black and White” which will expose the lies and outright slander used to frighten black voters to staying in the Democrat column.
Each of the battleground states listed has large evangelical populations and a significant black population as well. If we can get Christians working together and voting together based on biblical principle instead of divided based on race and party affiliation, we could turn this nation around easily.

Your donation today will help me launch my Campaign to Awaken the Church and the Truth in Black and White. We have only five months and the left is already ahead of us in organizing and fundraising.
This is urgent. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say this is an emergency!
You’ve seen the attacks on people in restaurants and the vicious, nasty threats against conservatives in every medium - from TV to Twitter.
If Congress is taken over by Trump haters, he will be impeached. It is doubtful they would have the votes to convict him in the Senate, but that would not stop them from precipitating a Constitutional crisis.
Understand that this fight is not ultimately about President Trump. It is about those who want to fundamentally transform America and want to destroy anyone who is in their way. They make wild accusations about the President, but the left is in morphing into something approaching a totalitarian cult with Stalinist-like tactics. Thank God they don’t have the power to commit mass violence - yet.
We need Christians who love our country and our Constitution to engage now. We avoided the potential downfall of America in 2016. We must do it again.
Christians have the numbers to dominate the political process. What we lack is the unity and motivation. If watching your country torn apart by forces of atheism and socialism is not enough to spur us to action, then it is hopeless.
I do not believe it is hopeless. Day by day God is adding to our Movement to Awaken the Church.
Donate today. Tell your family. Tell a friend. Tell a neighbor, a colleague. Ask them to join the Movement. Most importantly, talk to your Pastor. Tell him about this Movement to Awaken the Church, and urge him to contact me
Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you, and may He continue to bless the United States of America.
For God & Country,
Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr.
P.S. This year, we are asking for 242 Patriots to become regular monthly donors in honor of the 242 years since the birth of America. Would you become one of the first to join the 242 Patriots who agree to STAND with me from month to month? An automatic monthly commitment of $5, $10, $25, $50 or any amount is a tremendous help. For your commitment of $10 a month or more, I will send you a signed copy of my new book 12 Principles to Make Life Extraordinary.
