Hello Pastor,

The 2024 Legislative Session is over, and the fight to protect your people has never been more important. While we are seeing movement toward an awakening in New Mexico, the below rankings show us a state in need of the Word of God and His peace.

What role will the church play in restoring what’s been lost in our state?

Where Does New Mexico Stand?


  • #38 in Low Unemployment Rates  (as of December 2023). 
  • #48 in Employment Participation Rates.  Economic Research
    (only 56.4% of working age in NM are in the workforce) 
  • #3 in High Poverty Rates. US News Article



  • #51 in “Best States in the US”
    Recent study ranks New Mexico as the worst state to live in. ABC News KVIA  says, “A new report argues that New Mexico is statistically the worst state to live in. WalletHub analyzed 51 different factors, including economy, health, education, affordability, and safety for each state. It found that, overall, New Mexico ranked last.” Read more here.



  • #4 in Suicide Rates. Throughout the state of New Mexico, suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. That’s a horrifying number for our children. Read more from CAMS-Care.  


  • New Mexico is known as the “Abortion capitol of the U.S.”.
  • Governor has named it the “AbortTourism Capitol.”
  • No current statistics since the horrible laws passed in 2023.

As a Pastor or a Faith Leader in New Mexico – you are crucial to the rescue and restoration of what has been lost. Thank you for teaching the truth of God’s Word and offering hope and stability in this dark world.

You are a blessing to our state. 

May the Lord bless and keep you and yours,
