Evangelicals in Civic Life

EPPC’s Evangelicals in Civic Life program researches the role the evangelical community plays in American politics and public life. This program explores the civic and political activities of evangelicals, taking a look at the broad array of organizations and leaders as well as bringing evangelical leaders together to discuss more effective civic involvement.

The program is directed by EPPC Fellow Andrew Walker, who is joined in his work on the project by EPPC Fellow Carl R. Trueman, EPPC Fellow Brad Littlejohn, and EPPC Postdoctoral Fellow Nathanael Blake.
