Welcome to Capitol Commission California!

We in California have been blessed with a beautiful state and a magnificent Capitol building. We are even more blessed with the opportunity to take the good news of Jesus and the life-changing Word of God to our state leaders. This is particularly important in Sacramento, the political power center for the most populous state in the most powerful nation on earth.

Each week, I lead in-depth Bible studies inside the Capitol for Legislators, State Leaders, Staff, and Lobbyists. I also meet personally with many government leaders to share God's Word, pray with them, or provide pastoral guidance. Through this ministry, the Good News of Jesus Christ is offered to every state leader, regardless of party affiliation, and all who are willing are given the opportunity to grow in their faith.

Though we are not focused on politics or legislation, we can rest assured that with God's help, lawmakers will make better laws, and so we expect our entire state and nation to benefit as this ministry grows.

Thank you for your partnership with us in this important work. This is a "by faith" ministry, relying entirely on contributions from individuals and churches.

Contact me anytime. I am also happy to speak to your church or group about what God is doing in the political arena or about any biblical topic. I would love to hear from you!

Frank Erb is a true friend of legislators and all of us. He selflessly comes to the Capitol, giving of himself to be a comfort, an inspiration, a guide and a companion. He is a bed rock example of faith to those who thirst for guidance, understanding, empathy and real caring in their challenged lives. He has spent real time in the pressure cooker environment of Sacramento so he understands what all those who work in the Capitol and in the agencies must contend with. He is a respected and dear friend.

During my time in the Legislature, I have come to count on Pastor Frank Erb and Capitol Commission as I work through the many challenges, both personal and professional, I face in the State Capitol. Frank’s candor and ability to apply scripture to everyday life have made him an invaluable part of the Capitol community and I am proud to call him a friend.

California's Capitol Commission and Pastor Frank Erb are absolutely necessary inside the State Capitol. As a former legislator I know that the halls and office of the Capitol can be the loneliest places around. Legislators often do not share their pains or personal crisis because of fear. Frank lets them know that Jesus is listening and loves them. The weekly Bible study offers legislators and staff a break from politics and an opportunity to focus on the eternal. I encourage everyone to support this ministry with their prayers and their resources.

I encourage every legislature to have this in their capitol, and every legislator who I meet should take part in something like this. It’s very important to their spiritual life.” - Senator Sam Aanestaad

Frank Erb is the moral heart of the Capitol community. As legislators we spend so much time with the details of bills and laws that we can neglect the bigger picture. Frank’s biblical teachings and reflections help us focus on more than just what is legal, but what is right. He helps me and other legislators live a Christ-filled life and I treasure our time together sharing the wisdom and love of God.
