This week I interview the COO of Forge Leadership Network, Jeremiah Martin and an active graduate of the program, Adam Retych.
The Forge Leadership Network is my answer to pray regarding the raising up of the next generation of leadership for a professional life and most importantly, governance. Governance include every approach of life from personal, family, church, business, justice and yes, where we are greatly lacking, the political arena.
Jeremiah Martin will be discussing the impact Forge Leadership Network is having on young adults as they prepare to engage in the political world in general. Foundational Principles are illuminated through various means. More grounding is the mentorship program that those entering the full program will cherish and use for all their life’s endeavors.
Joining along with Jeremiah is my friend Adam Retych who is a graduate of the Forge Leadership Network. Adam gives his personal experience of participating in the program. It is a delight to hear the impact that this great environment has been to Adam and his decision making.
For more information on how you can become a part of the Forge Leadership Network efforts or participate in the program please follow the links to: Forge Leader Network Home Page and for those 18 to 25 wanting information about the program Forger Leadership Network /Apply.
Just a last note. I consider Forge Leadership Network and answer to prayer in that for the last 40+ years there has not been any focussed development of our next generations for political leadership. This organization is the closest I have found that truly looks to inculcate the students in Founders Principles of leadership and historically accurate political science.

RESOLUTION OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS.
[NOVEMBER 1, 1777.]
[MS., Papers of the Continental Congress. Reports of Committees. No. 24, p. 431.]
Forasmuch as it is the indispensable Duty of all Men, to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God:—To acknowledge with Gratitude their Obligation to Him for Benefits receivd, and to implore such further Blessings as they stand in Need of:—And, it having pleased Him in his abundant Mercy, not only to continue to us the innumerable Bounties of His common Providence; but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary War for the Defence and Establishment of our unalienable Rights and Liberties. Particularly in that He hath been pleased, in so great a Measure to prosper the Means used for the Support of our Troops, and to crown our Arms with most signal Success.
It is therefore recommended to the Legislative or Executive Powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday the Eighteenth Day of December, next, for solemn Thanksgiving and Praise. That at one Time, and with one Voice, the good People may express the grateful Feelings of their Hearts, and consecrate themselves to the Service of their divine Benefactor. And, that together with their sincere Acknowledgments and Offerings, they may joyn the penitent Confession of their manifold Sins, whereby they had forfeited every Favor; and their humble & earnest Supplication that it may please God through the Merits of Jesus Christ mercifully to forgive and blot them out of Remembrance. That it may please Him, graciously to afford His Blessing on the Governments of these States respectively, and prosper the publick Council of the whole. To inspire our Commanders both by Land and Sea, & all under them with that Wisdom and Fortitude which may render them fit Instruments, under the Providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States, the greatest of all human Blessings, INDEPENDENCE and PEACE. That it may please Him, to prosper the Trade and Manufactures of the People, and the Labor of the Husbandman, that our Land may yet yield its Increase. To take Schools and Seminaries of Education, so necessary for cultivating the Principles of true Liberty, Virtue, & Piety, under His nurturing Hand; and to prosper the Means of Religion for the Promotion and Enlargement of that Kingdom which consisteth “in RIGHTEOUSNESS PEACE AND JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST.”
And it is further recommended, that servile Labor, and such Recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the Purpose of this Appointment, may be omitted on so solemn an occasion.
