In the Perspective of Abiding Truth Ministries.

To be included in this list the candidates must be American pro-family leaders with an established organizations dedicated to defending and promoting Biblical values regarding LGBT issues. This year our primary criteria for ranking the candidates was tenacity in the face of great challenges. We looked especially for leaders who showed courage under fire or whose words and actions gave special encouragement to our movement.

While there are many great pro-family organizations not represented on the list this year, we have chosen the following as the Top Ten Pro-Family Heroes of 2015. Please use the links we have provided to send a note of thanks to these heroes. And, in addition to your support of ATM, please send these worthy organizations a donation to help them in their work.
