Family Voice stands with like-minded churches and organizations to help South Dakota become a state where:


God is Honored

It is our wish that our culture and our government bring glory to Christ.

Religious Freedom Flourishes

Religious freedom is more than just the ability to worship. It is the freedom to live every aspect of life in accordance with Faith in Christ.

Families Thrive

The strength of a nation is directly related to the strength of its families. We seek to strengthen families, and by default strengthen our nation.

Life is Cherished

The value a society places on human life determines its future. We seek to ensure that every human life is held in the highest regard.


That South Dakota be a state where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is valued.


To Champion the Judeo-Christian values of Faith, Family and Freedom.


By building alliances, promoting biblical citizenship, engaging the citizen’s voice, and equipping statesmen.



Educating and Engaging the Public

Much of what we do revolves around bringing our constituents the most relevant information on today’s top issues. We do this through emails, luncheons and educational seminars on a broad range of topics.

Influencing Policy

Whether in the halls of our state capitol, a city council meeting, or your local sheriff’s office, we are working to defend the values of Faith, Family & Freedom that we all cherish. We strive to ensure that you and your values have a voice in the public square.
