S.C. Pastor Adds Voice to National Call for Bipartisan Immigration Reform

Date: May 31, 2013

As momentum builds in support of broad, commonsense immigration reform, the Evangelical Immigration Table announced today its newest and largest paid-media campaign to reach evangelicals on the issue of immigration. The effort includes radio ads in South Carolina and a billboard to appear in Columbia.

On a press call today, national and local evangelical leaders discussed the quarter-million-dollar effort, which includes ads airing nationally on the Salem Communications Network and additional reach in 13 key states — including an ad in South Carolina featuring Rev. Jim Goodroe, Director of Missions, Spartanburg County Baptist Network. Rev. Goodroe is also available for interviews.

The ad campaign further increases the Evangelical Immigration Table’s support for bipartisan, commonsense immigration reform and builds on the 92-day “Pray for Reform” campaign. The call took place as small groups of Christians in at least 20 states gathered in their communities to pray for immigrants and for Congress as part of the campaign.
