Recipient of the "Samuel Adams Award for Courageous Christian Leadership"
Pat Bradley will receive the Samuel Adams Award for Courageous Christian Leadership for his incredible work rescuing victims of human trafficking and bringing life-saving relief to the poorest and most vulnerable.
His ministry, Crisis Aid International, is one of the first organizations to show up in “no-go zones,” visiting countries like South Sudan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan where starvation, disease, and danger are part of everyday life. Pat has witnessed the results of the genocide firsthand and Crisis Aid encourages others that “doing nothing” is not an option. Crisis Aid has provided millions of pounds of food to adults and malnourished children around the world. They have also helped to rescue thousands of young women from sex trafficking, the youngest being four years of age. Crisis Aid is committed to “helping the helpless” with relief efforts locally and globally, equipping those who are beyond the crisis to take responsibility by providing programs that train, inspire, and move them to independent, self-sustaining living.
Recipient of the "Samuel Whittemore Award for Heroic Christian Citizenship"
Joe Kennedy will receive the Samuel Whitmore Award for for Heroic Christian Citizenship. In 2008, the Bremerton High School football coach made a promise to God that he would pray and give thanks after each game he coached, regardless of the outcome. This commitment to a simple, private act of worship caused him to be stripped of his position as a coach and forced into a lengthy legal battle against the school he faithfully served. Coach Joe stood his ground, despite repeated losses in the lower courts, until he ultimately prevailed before the United States Supreme Court.
Following excellent work by Kelly Shackelford and the other first amendment lawyers at Liberty Institute, The U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in Coach Kennedy’s favor. Coach Joe secured a huge victory, not just for himself, but for all of us. The Supreme Court case has a nationwide impact on public-school teachers, employees and coaches, who are now free to live out their faith in public. This win overturned a prior ruling that had harmed religious freedom for decades and set a major precedent for our first freedom moving forward. Thanks to this win, millions of Americans now have more religious liberty than we have had for the last 60 years.
