The Frontline team is growing, and we are thrilled to announce the hires of two new team members!

First, we have hired Sam Thomas as our Director of Christian Engagement. In his role, Sam will partner with churches to awaken, equip, and serve the body of Christ in Georgia – empowering His people to be salt and light in a fallen culture. With a background as a pastor, middle school and high school teacher, college debate coach, and community leader, Sam also holds advanced biblical education from Truett McConnell. Sam and his new bride, Krista, (the Thomas’ were married in October) reside in Jackson County.

Second, we have hired Beatrice Shakal as our Director of Alliances. In her role, Beatrice will network various spheres of influence – groups under attack from the radical Left – to stand firm and be head for the glory of God. Beatrice will also serve as a member of our Capitol team with a particular focus on the life issue. Beatrice holds an advanced degree from Liberty University and has served on the staff and campaign of Senator David Perdue, the campaign of Governor Brian Kemp, and as a Policy and Communications Manager for the Georgia House Majority Caucus. Beatrice, her husband Chris, and their infant son, Alvaro, reside in Cobb County.

Most importantly, Sam and Beatrice are the kind of Christian leaders we want in this organization – committed to boldly advancing our values with God-glorifying grace and humility.

With your support, Frontline is the premier force in Georgia for life, for faith, for family, and for freedom. The state’s largest pro-life and pro-family organization, we are committed to continuing to grow, strengthen, defend families, advance freedom, and WIN.

We look forward to sharing more about our plans and the programs Sam and Beatrice will be building!

Building the Frontline,

Cole Muzio

PS. Earlier this year, we made a transition – with a new name and a separation from the organization in Colorado Springs. THIS was part of the catalyst – the ability to grow, meet the needs of our state, innovate, and lead. We are grateful for your continued prayers and support!
