“Pastor Ingram challenged us to serve others by doing the right things for the right reasons,” said Sen. Hufstetler. “I was privileged to welcome not only my friend, but a God-serving man, and steadfast community leader. His message helped us remember to rely on God and constantly seek his will in all that we do.”
“Today, we welcomed Pastor Carey Ingram to the Senate as he inspired each of us with a stirring devotional and prayer,” said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle. “As public servants, we should strive not only to hear the word of the Lord at the beginning of each Senate gathering - but to put it in practice with the decisions we make. We are blessed to have wonderful clergy leaders like Pastor Ingram and I thank him for the inspirational message."
