Comm #29: Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Updated: Apr 2, 2022

Hey good morning! This is Joan sending you our warmest greetings…and some awesome help.

We knew when we formed The Church Finds Its Voice coalition that legal help for you was essential. The Church has been seriously harassed by those who use legal fright as a weapon against you. So we asked Brad Dacus to join me, Kielle, and Chad in the coalition to provide you with the legal protection so you wouldn’t have to worry anymore about that.

Here’s Brad to tell you just what to do if you feel your faith activities are being inappropriately threatened, and you need legal help. He’s laid it out for you so that it’s very clear, and very easy. Easy as 1,2,3.


Tyranny today is no longer a distant concept for people of faith. Pastors are being sued for preaching the gospel in public places, or for holding a church service under an unreasonable lockdown order.

Churches, particularly in blue states, are frequently barred from meeting because of possible “zoning” restrictions and other illegal attempts to suppress religious freedoms. Church members are losing their jobs because of their faith and many more are being forced to flee to a different state due to outrageous policies restricting freedom. Business owners are expected to compromise their beliefs or face the possibility of their business being shut down. For example, businesses like a Korean women’s-only spa received a complaint after they refused to provide service to a biological male. More and more parents are losing their children by overzealous social workers.

But we have good news for churches potentially facing the above challenges. We at

the Pacific Justice Institute are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that uniquely works hard to make sure everyone gets help, and know that no one is left on the side of the road. We defend

religious freedom, parents’ rights, sanctity of human life—all without charge! So, what should

someone do if they need help? It’s simple and easy—just follow the three steps below.

Step 1: Visit or call (916-857-6900)

Step 2: Provide a brief explanation of the matter and your contact information

Step 3: Wait 24-48 hours for a response from one of our attorneys

Remember, you are not alone because Pacific Justice Institute has your, your fellow congregants

and the church’s back. Consequently, we are appreciative of the many churches across the

country who have become a part of our team at PJI. While we never require anything in return, we are grateful to those who feel led to partner with our ministry at In addition to the

legal services, I treasure every opportunity I have to preach from the Word at churches across

the country—always free of charge! If you are interested, please call 916-857-6900 or email us

Also, is your church looking to register its members to vote but scared to lose its tax exemption

status? We can help you with this as well! PJI is so committed to serving and empowering

churches that we are excited to announce our new Church Outreach office in Palmdale, CA. This

is to ensure churches and pastors get timely help. Pastor Peter Mordh is heading up this office

and is looking forward to serving all of you. For more information, please contact him at

Friends, it’s easy as 1 2 3, to get help. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to

hearing from you soon.

Running the Race,

Brad Dacus


And now here’s a quick update from coalition member and Faith Wins founder, Chad Connelly…

I’d guess our team has been to and spoken in as many pastor meetings in more states than just about anyone in the nation over these past few years. A major hangup for some pastors is STILL the fear of lawsuits and the threats from the left for speaking out in the truth they know publicly. We are proud to partner with my friend, Brad Dacus and his team at Pacific Justice Institute to provide Christian legal advice and support in the event a pastor or church is threatened. Brad and his team have been national leaders on First Amendment challenges and have given guidance to 100’s of churches and Christian organizations navigating through government overreach in the past couple of years. I appreciate Brad’s expertise and friendship!


Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. -Deuteronomy 31:6

Our God will never leave us, so we have nothing to fear…Ever! Praise Him! Pastors, you are strong and equipped not only with the truth of the Bible, but now also with the truth of the law that is on your side. Keep sharing God’s word with conviction and the courage He has given you, sound in the knowledge that God will bless and protect you every step of the way. And don’t ever hesitate to reach out to the Pacific Justice Institute for help and resources…they are there for you!
