Micah Pearce Bio
“Micah Pearce is a Wisconsin native and former homeschooler born and raised in
Sheboygan Falls. He was instrumental in recruiting and organizing
homeschoolers to help make a difference in Sheboygan County, where he
was a major player in a grassroots effort that resulted in contacting
over 20,000 voters in the fall 2012 election cycle. He has staffed
several statewide events with TeenPact Leadership Schools across several
states. There he educated students about the political process and
empowered them to champion their values. Micah also frequently
volunteers his time to lead middle school and high school youth groups.
Seeing youth understand and defend their values is a central motivation
to his life and he considers his faith the be the driving force behind
it. He is currently the Youth Director for American Majority Wisconsin,
where he is traveling to speak to groups of students to enable them to
further understand the political system, develop conviction, and
champion their values in their government and culture. This job is yet
another way that he can continue to see youth grow in their
understanding and ability to impact their culture.”
Topics covered include:
The political process and how the three branches work together.
How Christians should relate to, and understand with their government. Whether or not Christian’s should be involved.
How governments differ from each other. And how different governments affect their people.
The Founding Fathers perspective on government, people, and God.
What a principled representative looks like and what they can accomplish.
How you can support candidates who share your values.
How you can communicate with officials already in office, and keep them accountable.
The need to instill Christian values on the cultural level.
I wrap it all up with how powerful young people are by virtue of the fact
that it’s so uncommon for a young person to stand up and speak
passionately and articulately.
One mother said of the presentation,
“Micah’s impressive presentation incorporates a perfect blend of instruction,
humor, interaction, thought-provoking questions, visuals, inspiration,
and personal testimony. The feedback from both teens and parents was
100% positive. We went home that evening with a sense of hope for our
country’s future, and some direction for how to preserve and promote the
principles upon which our country was founded…”
A different mother said,
“I don’t think anyone left Friday night without a positive charge; history
lesson, persuasive speaking tips, motivational energy, government
lesson, humor, super slick visuals, genuine enthusiasm, political
know-how, adoration of God, and a contagious zeal for getting involved
in the way our country is run… You went well beyond any
expectations!… You have truly made a positive, not-to-be forgotten
difference that will reach beyond our fortunate group.”
Another mother said her children said that they were, “…not shy at all in making sure she knew that if even just a handful of their classes could be so inspiring they would love school.”
American Majority is a non-profit, non-partisan, 501-c3, conservative,
organization. The larger part of what AM does is train citizens to run
for office. They do great work getting individuals involved in their
governments. However, what I do is separate and unique. I work off of a
private grant to go train students. I’m very glad and blessed to be able
to travel and share my faith in this job.
