“Reclaiming Moral Values”—That was the Sunday night message on the ABC evening news as the network discussed the timely message of Dr. D. James Kennedy, one of America’s most-watched and respected religious leaders.
Dr. Kennedy, Senior Minister of the famous Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is the host of “The Coral Ridge Hour” a weekly program seen on the Trinity Broadcasting Network— the world’s largest religious network and America’s most watched faith channel. “The Coral Ridge Hour” features inspiring worship services and relevant messages by one of America’s most respected spiritual leaders, Dr. James Kennedy. In addition to the worship service, each program presents a timely documentary feature on issues that are culturally relevant and of great importance to all Americans.
“Dr. Kennedy’s preaching is both powerful and relevant to our times and our nation,” says Paul Crouch Jr., Vice President of Administration at TBN.
Recently, Dr. Kennedy addressed the implications of the recent presidential election with his church and television viewers. The voters have “delivered a moral mandate,” says Kennedy. “Now that values voters have delivered for George Bush, he must deliver for their values.” Kennedy went on to state that God might run out of patience if this country does not line up with His commandments.
As one of the most well-known religious leaders in the United States, Dr. Kennedy represents many who take the Bible seriously and desire a return to traditional moral values. His messages from his popular pulpit are heard and read by millions.
In addition to his pastorate at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, which is one of the most frequently attended churches in the South, Dr. Kennedy has started several influential organizations. He is the founder of Evangelism Explosion International, Coral Ridge Ministries, Westminster Academy, Knox Theological Seminary, and the Center for Reclaiming America. These groups are all based in Fort Lauderdale. He also founded the Center for Christian Statesmanship which exists in Washington, D.C.
