Recover America Now has remained active throughout the COVID lockdown, conducting dozens of Zoom Calls with outstanding Christian Leaders which you can access on this site and which remain very informative and relevant. Dr. Scarborough also launched his very successful podcast through Charisma Ministries working with his longtime friend who is the Owner and Founder, Mr. Steve Strang. These two men illustrate that Christians from differing faith backgrounds can find common ground at the foot of the cross and work together to advance the Kingdom.
Dr. Scarborough often says:
“I am very proud of my Southern Baptist roots. I was provided an excellent Theological education at virtually no cost due to the kindness and generosity of millions of Southern Baptist Christians, but I learned a long time ago that God is bigger than our tags. If you go to Heaven, your tag will drop off. If you go to hell, your tag will burn off! One way or another they will all come off and the important thing is knowing that you know Jesus.”
Recover America is a non-denominational ministry, with Board Members representing both Charismatic and non-Charismatic churches, united in their commitment to call believers from every faith persuasion who love God and love America to join us in our mission to take Jesus into the civil arena and provide Biblical solutions to practical problems. We believe the Bible speaks to every area of life and that Pastors are the key to a Third Great Awakening.
Dr. Scarborough’s podcast is appropriately called, Mixing Church and State God’s Way. The success of the podcast has been very gratifying, with over 100,000 downloads in the first six months making it one of the most popular podcasts in the Charisma family of over 300 podcasters. We have regular subscribers from around the world including Russia, Canada and Mongolia. He has also written several new eBooks while working from his home, which you can access on the RAN site. If you sign up for his weekly podcast you will automatically receive your gift copy of the eBook, Mixing Church and State God’s Way.
On May 10, 2021, Mr. Hunter Kelly joined the Recover America Now Team as the Vice President in charge of Communications and Social Media. He will also build a new outreach to Millennials. Dr. and Mrs. Scarborough met and became acquainted with Mr. Kelly while commuting to Washington DC doing Bible studies with members of Congress and various other governmental leaders. At the time, Mr. Kelly was working for Senator Tim Scott, later joining the staff of Senator Josh Hawley, booking all of his interviews and overseeing his social media outreach. He brings a rich resume’ of practical experience as well as a deep commitment to Christ. Dr. Scarborough recently spoke to meeting of our financial partners and commented that Mr. Kelly will enable us to reach to a whole new generation of activists who love our Lord and our country.
Find pastors and other faith leaders who will pledge to take their faith into the civil arena and help shape public policy.
Historically, Pastors have been engaged in civil government. Legally, Pastors can be engaged in civil government. Biblically, Pastors must be engaged in civil government.
Recover America Now exists to mobilize Pastors and Church Leaders to use their influence to register, educate and mobilize values-based citizens to vote their Biblical values on Election Day.
Recover America Now is praying and working for a revival in America resulting in a nation where Biblical values are embraced, and decency is restored.
Dr. Rick Scarborough
Dr. Rick Scarborough has worked with pastors and politicians since resigning First Baptist Church, Pearland in 2002, including conducting in depth Bibles studies with members of Congress and other governmental leaders in Washington DC, commuting regularly from his home in Nacogdoches, Texas. He is also the founder of Vision America and Vision America Action.
He is an ordained Southern Baptist Minister and served as the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Pearland, TX. from 1990 to 2002. During his time as senior pastor, he encouraged his congregation to live their faith and consider running for public office. The church was known as a soul winning church, baptizing over 2000 new converts and relocating to state-of-the-art facilities during that time. Eventually, his church members occupied most of the seats on the city council and local school board. Three church members later served with distinction in the Texas State Legislature, one of whom is now in the U.S. Congress, Congressman Randy Weber, who regularly hosted Bible studies for Dr. Scarborough in his office.
Dr. Scarborough is the author of four books, including the best-selling Enough is Enough (2008) and Mighty Men Stay on Track (2016). He has also written numerous booklets and pamphlets. He has written published articles and appeared on live broadcast media and radio, speaking about the need for pastors to engage the culture.
Dr. Scarborough received a B.S. from Houston Baptist University, M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a D. Min. from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary, with additional studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Tommye, have three children, one of whom is in Heaven and four grandchildren.
On June 30th Dr. Scarborough stepped down from leading Bible Studies in DC to devote full time to encouraging Pastors to engage the culture with Biblical truth, believing that Pastors alone can save America from moral disintegration. He will be traveling and speaking to thousands of Pastors in Texas and other battleground states between now and Election Day, 2020, calling on pastors to set aside labels and stand on Biblical truth, calling their people to vote their values on Election Day. He has formed a new non-profit organization to facilitate his mission which he named Recover America NOW! On October 1 he conducted his first Pastors Roundtable in Houston, Texas, featuring Retired Army General Jerry Boykin, former Commander of America’s Special Forces and Deputy Undersecretary of Defense under President G.W. Bush, with more than 125 pastors and leaders attending. He is planning more than 50 such events during 2020.
In addition to Recover America Now, in January of 2020 he began traveling and speaking all over the country representing The Jonathan Project, a National Christian Voter Registration Ministry, as their National Pastor Advisor, and conducting Pastor Round Tables, as he has done for more than 20 years.
