The Evangelism Explosion D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship (CCS) recently conferred its highest honor, the Distinguished Christian Statesman Award, upon Senator John Boozman (R-AR).
“It is our privilege to recognize Senator Boozman for his service as a Christian Statesman,” said Dr. George Roller, Executive Director of the Center for Christian Statesmanship, which serves legislators, staffers, and interns on Capitol Hill.
“He is the personification of humility and sincerity and authenticity,” added Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA), who was among those present for the presentation of the award. “He clearly embodies the qualities of a Distinguished Christian Statesman. He has always fought for religious freedom issues, for the sanctity of life, and for the sanctity of marriage as ordained by God to be between a man and a woman. He is the ideal candidate for this year’s Distinguished Christian Statesman Award.”
The Distinguished Christian Statesman Award, given annually since 1996, seeks to honor individuals who combine excellence in public service with character and faith in God.
Previous awardees include Judge Roy Moore, Sen. Sam Brownback, Gov. Mike Pence, Rep. Randy Forbes, and Gov. Mike Huckabee.
