Politics and the Pulpit

Churches that improperly use their assets to intervene in the campaigns for or against candidates for public office and/or ballot measures risk losing their federal tax-exempt status under IRC Section 501(c)(3). Does this mean that pastors are prohibited from speaking on matters of politics from the pulpit? Must churches remain silent amid the chaos? Absolutely not!

But there is a right way and a wrong way to do just that. In this year (2022) of critical mid-term elections, pastors and churches can play a crucial role in the process. Done properly, churches can have a real impact on the outcome of elections for local, state, and national leaders.  

CSBC’s HR & Church Compliance Ministry invites pastors to hear first hand from attorney Brad Dacus, president and founder of the Pacific Justice Institute, a leading defender of churches and their First Amendment freedoms. Dacus will explain exactly how churches can be actively involved and influential in the political process without jeopardizing their tax-exempt status.
