Sen. Ted Cruz won't be talking politics when he addresses about 400 pastors Monday in South Carolina. The Texas Republican will focus his remarks on his faith and values.

The event is sponsored by the American Renewal Project, the brainchild of evangelical political operative David Lane, The State newspaper reports.

Cruz, a tea party favorite and one of the most vocal congressional opponents of the Affordable Care Act, was a driving force behind shutting down the federal government in an effort to defund Obamacare.

Cruz, a freshman, is weighing a run in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries.

Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina also will address the event.

"Everyone knows what they're running for. We want to know where you are coming from. What we're looking for is what's behind the curtain," Lane told the newspaper.

The group has invited other GOP presidential hopefuls, including Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida.
