Passing a Jobs Bill to Support Kentucky’s Infrastructure

On Thursday, I supported House passage of the Fiscal Year 2015 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, which passed by a bipartisan vote of 253-170.

The bill protects taxpayer dollars and cuts waste, spending $50 million less than last year’s version. It will help create construction jobs, improve our nation’s vital infrastructure, and support a true “all-of-the-above” energy policy that will reduce costs for Kentucky families. It prioritizes (more…)

Kentucky Changers Madison County

What is Kentucky Changers?

Kentucky Changers goes way beyond the typical “summer camp” experience. Participants are challenged to become “On Mission” Christians as they live out their faith while getting their hands dirty doing hard work. Participants work on exterior home repairs for low-income families.

They discover “missions as a lifestyle and not a location” as they make a difference in their world.

Kentucky Changers offers churches a pre-packaged project at an affordable cost. All Kentucky Changers are expected to engage in the mission-preparation process before arriving on site.

Kentucky Changers is a team effort from start to finish. An understanding of teamwork is vital, as participants will work on crews with students from other churches during their project week.

Kentucky Changers utilize The Blueprint for individual growth. This “On Mission” development guide is one of the primary tools for participants in their spiritual development. The Blueprint contains everything needed for personal spiritual preparation except for a Bible. Each participant is expected to work through this preparation guide.

Replacing roofs, installing siding or building a ramp is not easy labor and participants (more…)
