URBANDALE, Iowa – The FAMiLY LEADER announced Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, have confirmed they will address the 8th annual Family Leadership Summit at the Ron Pearson Center in West Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday, July 12.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Gov. Reynolds and Sen. Ernst to the Summit,” Bob Vander Plaats, President and CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER, said. “Our attendees will be encouraged, and rightly so, by the example of Iowa’s only two women elected to statewide office, Iowa’s ‘leading ladies,’ if you will. Reynolds and Ernst have been pioneers of leadership in our state, and their attendance is another reason the 2019 Family Leadership Summit is one of this summer’s most can’t-miss events!” 

Reynolds and Ernst join Republican U.S. Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Tim Scott of South Carolina, as well as actor and comedian Brad Stine, BlazeTV personality Steve Deace, Rob Roozeboom of Rise Ministries, and Bob Vander Plaats as confirmed speakers for the 2019 Summit.

Earlier this year, The FAMiLY LEADER made national headlines by inviting the top seven Democrats seeking the presidential nomination (by poll standing) to the Summit as well. All seven Democrats, however, declined the invitation.

Further announcements will be made when speakers confirm their attendance.

The annual Family Leadership Summit brings to the Midwest prominent, national leaders from a variety of fields to encourage Christians to engage in Christ-centered cultural transformation that “thinks bigger” than politics and elections to impact not just government, but also churches, families, and individual lives.
