A new report outlines five key contributions Vice President Mike Pence has made to the Trump administration as he prepares to debate vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris Wednesday night.

Christianity Today noted that Pence's Christian faith guides him in both his personal and political life.

"I don't know anyone who's more consistent in bringing his evangelical-Christian worldview to public policy," Southern Evangelical Seminary president Richard Land said, according to the report.

Among Pence's notable contributions during his 44-plus months in office, according to Christianity Today:

  1. Helping persuade Christians to vote for Trump: Particularly in the early years of Trump's first term, Pence served as a bridge between the president and Christian community leaders, including evangelicals.
     
  2. Calming presence: Pence constantly stands behind Trump and doesn't cause drama or too much excitement, opting to remain "steady and calm," Christianity Today wrote.
     
  3. Tie-breaker: Pence has cast 13 votes to break ties in the Senate, more than any other vice president in history. Among the pieces of legislation affected were a measure to allow states to prevent federal dollars from going to Planned Parenthood and confirming Betsy DeVos as education secretary.
     
  4. Standing behind persecuted Christians: Pence has advocated for helping persecuted Christians around the world and played an instrumental role in persuading Turkey to free American pastor Andrew Brunson.
     
  5. Pushing for space exploration: Pence is leading the effort to help the U.S. rebuild its space program, which includes sending U.S. astronauts to the moon by 2024 and, at some point after that, launching manned missions to Mars.

Pence will square off with Democrat Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's running mate, for a debate in Utah Wednesday night.
