Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to Receive Faith & Freedom Coalition Winston Churchill Courage in Leadership Award

Honor to be presented at Road to Majority Policy Conference 2021

DULUTH, Ga. – Today, Faith & Freedom Coalition announced that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be awarded the Winston Churchill Courage in Leadership Award during Road to Majority Policy Conference 2021 on Saturday, June 19.

“Newt Gingrich’s career is one of incredible dedication to God and to country,” commented Faith & Freedom Coalition Executive Director Timothy Head. “From his time serving in classrooms, and in the halls of Congress to his many initiatives after his service on the Hill, Newt has demonstrated in each stage of his life the initiative, vision and sacrifice embodied in every great leader. Not unlike the award’s namesake, Newt has faced incredible challenges and overcome them again and again. We are proud to bestow this award to him this spring.”

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich served from 1995-1999 as the 50th speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, before which he served as house minority whip. Previously, he was the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 6th congressional district serving north Atlanta and nearby areas from 1979 until 1999. Before his tenure in politics, Gingrich was a professor at West Georgia College.

A co-author and architect of the “Contract with America,” Gingrich was a major force behind the 1994 congressional Republican victory, leading Time to name him “Man of the Year” in 1995 for “his role in ending the four-decades-long Democratic majority in the House.”

Following his years in Congress, Gingrich founded a production company, Gingrich360, with his wife, Callista; published numerous books; hosts the “Newt’s World” podcast; and continues to teach in a variety of capacities.

The Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Policy Conference 2021 will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, on June 17-19.
