Numerous sources have noted that devout Christians make up a large percentage of Trump’s cabinet picks. And while no one source will vouch for the validity of each person’s degree of “devoutness,” the indicators are hopeful. They include deacons, home Bible-study leaders, elders, and Sunday School teachers.

Transformational Education is embodied in the appointment of Betsy DeVos—she was educated in CSI-member schools from K5 through college.
