The Daniel Impact is a strategy for exporting The FAMiLY Leader’s proven model of inspiring church engagement with government on a state-by-state basis across the U.S.

The Daniel Impact rethinks how we encourage the Church to engage with government. While many national organizations try to recruit the Church for their political ends, The Daniel Impact instead joins local churches in the Church’s mission – loving God, loving our neighbors, and sharing the Gospel – within the government arena, deliberately advancing God’s Kingdom, rather than man’s.


Today, The FAMiLY Leader is strategically exporting this model across the nation through independent, state-based family policy councils connected through the Family Policy Alliance. The FAMiLY Leader provides each participating state organization with training, mentoring, shared best practices, and grants to help fund implementation. 

The FAMiLY Leader’s ultimate goal is to see The Daniel Impact active in all 50 states, inspiring the Church to engage government, restoring the Church’s timeless voice, and transforming Church/State partnerships to bless people in local communities.

“I’ve personally witnessed the impact of The FAMiLY Leader’s ‘The Daniel Impact’ in Iowa. Elections are impacted, best policies are enacted, and officials are blessed and encouraged when the Church is authentically engaged. I cheer on this proven model and hope it is embraced and enacted in many states.”

“Without a doubt, The Daniel Impact represents a new and unique way for us to serve pastors and churches. Arizona will be ninth state to launch this initiative, and we are hearing incredible reports from our colleagues in other states. My heart is eager for what God is about to do in our state through this effort.”

“Donors have been very encouraged by the long-term vision of The Daniel Impact. I believe TDI even helps them place greater value on the overall work we do. We had a businessman who periodically gave around election time, but could go a year or more without giving. I met with him regarding The Daniel Impact, and he not only pledged a larger gift than he had ever given, but also asked to join our board! He is now a board member … a great addition to the team.”
