Samuel Rodriguez, Priscilla Shirer, and Carl Lentz Talk Faith and Politics

The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, author Priscilla Shirer, and pastor Carl Lentz were recently together in New York City for a press conference about their guest appearances on “The Doctor Oz Show” for special segments called “Faithful Fridays” airing in February (see for more details on the program). In addition to being questioned about their guest spots, all three were asked to weigh in on misconceptions about Christians, rifts among Evangelicals over President Donald Trump, and if they are hopeful for the future.

Rodriguez is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, pastor of New Season Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, California, and has worked closely with former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama on issues affecting Hispanic and Christian communities.

Shirer is a bestselling author, popular Bible teacher, speaker, and made her acting debut in the successful “War Room” movie. When not hosting her talk show or her own conferences, Shirer can be seen sharing the stage with Christine Caine, Beth Moore, and other influential Christian women.

Lentz is pastor of Hillsong Church in New York City. The popular church is known for attracting celebrities and athletes and also throngs of Millennial seekers and believers to its worship services every Sunday. Lentz has also been lauded by GQ, Complex and other publications for his hipster fashion sense.
