American Pastors Network

The American Pastors Network (APN) is the first and largest national network of pastors who believe in the authority of scripture; who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to public policy; who are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders; and who are mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process on a non-partisan basis.

APN brings listeners the daily one-hour radio program, “Stand in the Gap Today” (airs on 425 stations nationwide), as well as “Stand in the Gap Minute” (airs on approximately 300 stations nationwide) and “Stand in the Gap Weekend” (airs on nearly 200 stations across the United States).

American Pastors Network Spokesperson

apn_samrohrer_cropSam Rohrer

The Hon. Sam Rohrer is president of the American Pastors Network. He is also known for his work as a former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Rohrer’s faith-filled journey to serve others began when he placed his faith in God at age 7, and then graduated from Bob Jones University in 1977 as a business major.

After working in the business world for 15 years, Rohrer started his involvement with politics in 1992. For the next 18 years, he served as a State Representative in Harrisburg, Pa. During his years in state government, Rohrer sought to apply biblical principles in all areas of legislation, including finance and education. In 2009, he chose to campaign as a candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, and in 2011, ran for United States Senate.

Throughout Rohrer’s travels with politics, he connected with many pastors across the state of Pennsylvania and learned about their challenges from the pulpit, which prompted him to lead the Pennsylvania Pastors Network in June 2012. Then in July 2013, the American Pastors Network formed, allowing state chapters to unite across the country for moral truth in the public square.

Rohrer has been married to his wife, Ruth Ann, for 36 years. Together they have six children and eight grandchildren and are active members of their local church. Download headshot…
