The South Carolina Family Caucus
We hope this website will be a valuable tool to connect the citizens of South Carolina with the legislators who are carrying the banner for liberty, faith, and family.
We are a team of legislators dedicated to preserving and protecting families in South Carolina.
We stand for the religious freedom on which our State and our nation were founded. The preamble to the South Carolina Constitution states that we are “grateful to God for our liberties….” Article I, Section 2 of our Constitution states that “[t]he General Assembly shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….” Our goal is to honor our heritage of faith and preserve the promise of religious liberty for generations to come.
“…as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15 (NIV)
First and foremost, Family Caucus members support the rights of parents, families, and churches to honor God in every area of their lives, private and public.
“…the house of the righteous stands firm.” Proverbs 12:7 (NIV)
We believe the biblical design for marriage is God’s best plan for families and children—not just spiritually, but psychologically and economically. We believe that respecting traditional marriage and family values will create stronger families and a stronger South Carolina.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…” Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)
We are unashamedly pro-life. We believe each child is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. That’s why we’re dedicated to the preservation of all life, inside and outside the womb. The Family Caucus agrees with pro-life positions and opposes pro-choice leanings.
“…observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations… Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go.” 1 Kings 2:3 (NIV)
Our goal is to protect families from unhealthy influences, whether it’s addiction, pornography, prostitution, human trafficking, violence, crime, gambling, or other ugly issues that South Carolina citizens face today.

Our members’ affiliations may vary along political lines, but we all have two things in common: we profess Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we care deeply about South Carolina’s families.
