Evangelical Christian author Dr. James Dobson, founder and president of Family Talk, was presented with the Winston Churchill Lifetime Achievement Award at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Patriot’s Gala on Saturday. He issued a warning on moral issues in America.
Dobson, who is also the founder of Focus on the Family and served five U.S. presidents, was recognized for his 40 years in ministry and service to the American family and to the evangelical conservative movement. Previous recipients of the award include Phyllis Schlafly, Beverly LaHaye and Pat Robertson.
“Honored” to receive the award, Dobson stated, “I have been blessed to serve the institution of the family alongside so many talented and passionate individuals all of these years. It’s on their behalf, as well as all the families that kept our ministry on the air for 40 years that I will humbly accept this award.”
He stressed that he and his wife, Shirley, will continue fighting for family causes in their ministry.
“I pray that the work we are doing now, and in the years ahead, will continue to be a blessing to many generations to come,” he vowed.
He also stressed that voters have an obligation to pass conservative ideas to the next generation, stating, “We need to do that for our sons and daughters because the moral issues are even poorer understood than before.”
Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed presented Dobson with the award, noting that he has “served at the forefront of the evangelical conservative movement in America for decades, fighting for traditional marriage, the sanctity of human life and encouraging godly families.”
