As The Christian Left moves forward in 2020 we will need strong backing for the most important year of our existence, the year we all elect a new president to replace Donald J. Trump.
2016 showed us the logical end of "Christian" Right ideology. It was Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. Their agenda never did have anything to do with Jesus. It’s always been about power by any means necessary.
In 2009 we decided to go all in for Jesus and we started this ministry. Now we’re asking you to go all in with us.
2020 is going to be a ‘do or die’ year for America. We believe if Trump wins this nation will be set back by decades. In the areas of climate (approaching the point of no return), women's rights, LGBTQ rights, immigration, African-American rights, living wages, affordable housing, healthcare, hunger, homelessness, and so much more, everything is on the line.
This is The Christian Left Seasonal, Year-End, and Diversification Fund.
The fund goal is a lofty aspiration but this is the most consequential period of time we've faced in the decade since we began. We have enormous goals to carry out. They are detailed below.
Here are the reasons we've set up this fund:
1.) It's the season of giving and many like to make contributions to their favorite causes during the months around the holiday season.
2.) It's a new year and many also like to make larger contributions towards goals in the upcoming year.
Contributions to The Christian Left aren't tax deductible. We're far too political to qualify as a nonprofit and we're very partisan. It's well known that many other "Christian" organizations bend the truth when they hide behind a nonprofit status, say they're "nonpartisan," but behave in a distinctly partisan manner. We don't want to be like that.
3.) We just sent our Founder and Co-founder, Charles Toy and Mark Sandlin, to the 'Faith, Politics & the Common Good: Voter's Summit & Presidential Forum,’ in Des Moines, IA, Jan 9 - Jan 11, 2020. They formed some exciting new relationships with organizations that have similar goals. They'll be developing strategy with their new contacts and passing along news in the coming weeks and months!
(Below) Charles and Mark conduct a breakout training session at the
Common Good Voter's Summit in Des Moines, IA. Topics included the history
of The Christian Left, strategies of success in social media, the importance of
branding, integrated marketing communications across platforms, and fundraising
4.) As we've learned lately there is just no predicting what any large social media platform is going to do. We have to diversify so we can stay together if one platform completely changes or pulls some kind of a wacky move. We need to set up dynamic and interactive functionality on our website and put together a phone app as well. We need to update, upgrade, and diversify.
5.) Our dedicated staff has been working tirelessly for the ministry for 10 years. We have to pay them. It's the right thing to do. In order to do that we have to fundraise since we aren't backed by any millionaires or corporations.
6.) Our country is at a critical fork in the road. Our hope and faith is always in Jesus but we're seriously worried about the future of our nation. We're going to dig deep over the next 12 months to do everything we can do to rally as many people as possible. We're all in serious trouble if Donald J. Trump is elected for another 4 years. 2020 is the year of direct action for The Christian Left!
The Christian Left is truly one of a kind and we think you understand that. It's the only place in the world where Christian progressives and their allies from all over the nation can go to discuss events of the day in peace, 24/7, free from the harassment of conservatives or followers of The "Christian" Right. They are always free to inject their hope and trust in the teachings of Jesus in any thread and discuss how his teachings apply to the modern world.
Please make a contribution today for all of the above reasons. If you tend to make your largest contributions around this time of the year please send it our way. We have a lot to accomplish this year.
If you can't make a contribution right this minute please bookmark this page and return when you're all set.
We're going to be there for you when you need us, 7 days a week. Our plan includes a way for this community to survive no matter what happens in the unstable world of social media. We'll keep using social media but we'll expand our presence!
God Bless You!

Charles and Mark just returned from the Vote Common Good Summit It was a big success and they have much to tell in the coming weeks and months. Of course, like any other worthwhile endeavor there were significant associated travel costs. They will be doing much more of this kind of thing on your behalf during 2020. This is a pivotal year. Action is required. In today's world you can't do anything action-related without funding. The only way anything ever changes is through action. We know you understand how the process works. You see other groups doing the same thing all the time. You can be sure the "Christian" Right is funding action in a big way to get Trump elected for a second term.
