Penny Lancaster is the Founder of We Believe We Vote and served as the Executive Director from 2009 – 2017.
Seven years and seven universities after graduating from Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, WA, Penny received an MA in Special Education from EWSU and an elementary teaching position with Central Valley School District. She retired early at 55 to concentrate on pro-family advocacy in Spokane. Long before she focused on vetting candidates and encouraging the faith community to vote for Godly leadership, she fought to defend traditional family values against the encroachment of gambling, pornography, and public policies which encouraged harmful and unhealthy lifestyles.
Together with her husband Kelly, they raised two sons and a daughter; now they are enjoying a new granddaughter, Gianna. Penny and Kelly attend Valley Bible Church in Spokane during the summer and Community Church at the golf resort where they live and golf during the winter in Yuma.
Our Vision & Mission
The vision of We Believe We Vote is to see the citizens of our communities, states, and nation vote consistently according to Biblical truths and Constitutional Principles.
Our mission is to research candidates and ballot issues, prepare and distribute trustworthy resources, educate and mobilize citizens to vote based on Biblical truths and Constitutional principles.
We Believe We Vote is a Washington State non-profit corporation comprised of volunteer Christian citizens and community leaders who represent a variety of denominations and occupations and work under the direction of a paid Executive Director. We are governed by a Board of Directors and the policies and procedures in our Bylaws.
Every election cycle we produce a voter guide that is grounded in Biblical and Constitutional values, giving Christians the opportunity to see where candidates stand on moral and social issues and assist them in the voting process.
