Faith and Freedom Coalition Executive Director Timothy Head Talks Purpose of Road to Majority Conference and Why Nashville Was Chosen to Host

NASHVILLE, Tennessee – The Executive Director of the Faith and Freedom Coalition Timothy Head spoke with The Tennessee Star on Thursday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Policy Conference, which is taking place from June 16-18 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.

According to its website, “The Faith and Freedom Coalition is a national grassroots movement of over 2 million conservatives and people of faith in support of time-honored values, stronger families, and individual freedom.”

Head explained what the FFC does and the purpose of the annual Road to Majority Policy Conference.

“Our organization really functions to equip educate and mobilize people of faith, particularly Christians – evangelicals and faithful Catholics. Those are the core constituencies. There are certainly other people of faith that are more Orthodox-leaning, but those are the main two,” he said.

“This is two and a half days of headlining names, and some names that are not headliners yet but are moving in that direction,” he continued. “We’re trying to expose people of faith to current and future leaders. We’ll also have some breakout sessions and things of that nature about pertinent issues.”

“There’s some keynote, big speakers and also policy,” Head added.

Head lists life, family, and religious liberty as main issues that are being discussed at the Road to Majority Conference. He also mentioned immigration, criminal justice, and First Amendment issues as topics of discussion as well.

Head also discussed why the organization picked Nashville as the location for this year’s event.

“Clearly, for evangelical voters and conservative people in general, Nashville is one of the premiere cities to host large events like this,” he said.

“All in, we’ll probably have between two and three thousand folks that cycle through the doors here. There will be plenty from Metro Nashville and all over Tennessee, but there’s others coming in from throughout the Southeast as well as Ohio, Indiana, and other states,” he continued.

“We’re at the Gaylord Opryland. Its a great venue, in a great city. Nashville is very hospitable to large groups and to conservative groups,” he said.

“There are other places that make events like this more difficult than it needs to be. Nashville has been just the opposite,” Head concluded.

President Trump is on the agenda as a featured speaker, as are Tennessee’s U.S. senators Bill Hagerty and Marsha Blackburn.
