Gainesville minister named to Trump Evangelical Advisory Board

By AccessWDUN staff

The Donald J. Trump campaign has created a new executive board to provide advisory support to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee on issues "important to Evangelicals and other people of faith in America."

The make-up of the board includes Jentezen Franklin, Senior Pastor of Free Chapel in Gainesville.  Another member with Georgia ties is Ralph Reed, founder of the Christian Coalition, who ran an unsuccessful race for Lt. Governor in 2006.

According to a news release from the Trump camp, the leaders on the executive board were not asked to endorse Trump as a prerequisite for participating on the board.

"Rather," the release states, "the formation of the board represents Donald J. Trump’s endorsement of those diverse issues important to Evangelicals and other Christians, and his desire to have access to the wise counsel of such leaders as needed."

“I have such tremendous respect and admiration for this group and I look forward to continuing to talk about the issues important to Evangelicals, and all Americans, and the common sense solutions I will implement when I am President,” Trump said.
