Exodus Mandate to Celebrate Tenth Anniversary October 9

Contact: Chaplain (Lt. Col.) E. Ray Moore, USAR Ret., Exodus Mandate, 803-714-1744

COLUMBIA, SC, Aug. 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Frontline Ministries will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of Exodus Mandate with a gala banquet October 9. Featured speaker will be the former Attorney General of Virginia, Mark Earley, who is now president of PFM.

A Christian non-profit organization, PFM is composed of Prison Fellowship and BreakPoint, an organization that equips Christians to live out their faith in the culture. Prison Fellowship is the world's largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families.

 The $50-a-plate banquet will be held at the Columbia Conference Center with doors opening at 6:00 PM. To order tickets or become a table host, call Gail P. Moore at the Exodus Mandate offices, 803-714-1744.

The Exodus Mandate project has become a leading advocate in America today for K-12 Christian and home-based education as an alternative to state-run public schools.

Exodus Mandate was launched by E. Ray Moore in 1997. Rev. Moore is a retired Army Reserve Chaplain and veteran of Gulf War I. With his wife Gail, the couple began home schooling in 1977 and was among the first who pioneered the modern home schooling movement. As a result of Exodus Mandate and similar organizations, an estimated 2.5 million children will be home schooling this year--and millions more will be attending Christian and private schools.

Besides the Exodus Mandate project, Frontline Ministries also offers a mentoring network for parents called Home Schooling Family to Family and operates a chaplaincy service to provide Christian ministry in the workplace.

"We believe that Christ commanded us to be salt and light, reaching out in love to help our neighbors overcome the challenges of living for the Lord in an increasingly secular society" says founder E. Ray Moore of Columbia, South Carolina.

"We American Evangelicals have erred in teaching that Christ's Great Commission is simply about proclaiming the good news of salvation. It also includes K-12 Christian education of children in family and church settings. Science, math and liberal arts are all part of a normal Christian education--not just sound theology, ethics and morality."

Mark Earley was named President and CEO of PFM in 2002. A global network of outreaches, it now works to help rehabilitate prisoners in over 100 countries. It was founded by Chuck Colson who still serves on the PFM Board of Directors (www.pfm.org). PFM also sponsors various programs including a daily BreakPoint radio commentary hosted by Colson and Earley; the Wilberforce Forum, a network of writers, scholars, and speakers who promote a Christian worldview and annually recognize Christians of influence through the Wilberforce Award; a division of the ministry providing BreakPoint media services; the Justice Fellowship which advocates criminal justice reform; the Worldview Resource Center to gather and disburse information on prisons; and Centurions, an intensive study program that equips Christians to engage their church, community and culture with biblical truth.

Next month, Mark Earley will launch The Point, a one-minute worldview radio commentary that encourages Christians to think about timely issues and how they affect the culture and everyday life.
