Dr. Ben Carson is speaking to CPAC on Friday, announcing major news about the future of his presidential campaign.

In advance of that news, he's also promoting a change of career.

Carson will become the chairman of My Faith Votes, a nonpartisan group encouraging Christians to vote, according to a statement received by Politico:

“Nothing is more important to me than my personal faith, and it is my faith that motivated me to be involved in the political process to begin with,” Carson said in the same statement. “I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls. When we do vote, We The People will once again solidify our commitment to the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.”

Carson did not attend Thursday's debate, and his future in the 2016 primary is uncertain.

In the meantime, however, he'll turn his focus to getting Christians to the polls, like the testament he delivered to a young woman in South Carolina in February:

The next round of states votes on Saturday, March 5.
