Welcome to Capitol Commission Maryland! Please take some time to browse this site to get a better idea of our ministry. If I can serve you in any way or answer a question, please contact me.

One of Maryland’s nicknames is The Free State, yet many who are in political leadership positions here are in spiritual bondage. The good news of the gospel is that true freedom from sin is found in Jesus Christ: “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:31, 32).

Jesus entrusted to the Church His clear mandate to make disciples. As an arm of the local church, Capitol Commission goes into the political arena to share God’s truth, trusting Him to change hearts, not just laws.

What would happen if believers throughout Maryland communicated God’s love and forgiveness to our elected officials? Together, let’s find out as we show spiritual care for “kings and all those in authority” (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

Please pray for our ministry and for the salvation of your political leaders. This may seem daunting, but the Lord is able to change even the hardest of hearts. May He receive glory in accomplishing the impossible.

Capitol Commission provides Christian legislators like me with a theologically sound outlet to explore our faith in the context of our political service to our states and nation. Too many in today’s secularizing world would have us put our 'faith in a box' only on Sunday mornings. Brent and Capitol Commission, in a non-political way, provide much needed reassurance that we can live our faith in the way that Jesus Christ taught us, while still participating in the political process. I am very grateful to them for their important work.

As a Maryland legislator, tasked with making decisions that impact the lives of Maryland citizens, knowing I have both a prayer partner and loving advisor is both precious and vital. Since we must be 'on' at all times, it is so valuable to have someone I can be vulnerable with, who will both pray for me and give Godly counsel. With so much secular pressure, it is essential to keep scripturally focused. Brent's ministry, not just to me but to other legislators who are not believers, sends a message of God's love throughout our legislative body and staff.

Many people struggle with the right approach for Christians and the world of politics. The Bible is clear in many verses that we are to pray for those in authority. Additionally, no one is in authority without God allowing them to serve in that capacity. Brent Alderman and the Capitol Commission team are taking the Gospel to Annapolis and impacting lives on a daily basis. Not only does Brent lift up and challenge Christian politicians but he ministers to everyone whether elected officials or staff. The love of Christ is to go among them and share the good news. I personally am so grateful to God for the encouragement that I have received from Brent and the blessing that he is to so many.

Capitol Commission gives practical expression to a Christian ministry towards “kings and all that are in authority,” bringing the Gospel to men and women in political power. Their ministry has been effective and honorable and is staffed by dedicated Christians like Brent who do their work with humility and wisdom. I have been impressed with the plan that Capitol Commission brings to its ministry and with the transparent good will of those who serve.

Having Brent and Capitol Commission in Annapolis is a much needed breath of fresh air. Many times when feeling tired or discouraged, the Bible studies that Brent leads have directly addressed the issues that I'm facing. By being available and open to the Lord's leading, Brent helps equip believers in the General Assembly to make a difference for Jesus Christ each day and like Paul in Athens, helps us reason daily with those who are searching for truth.

As a pastor I served for many years with the tension between feeling guilt over not doing enough in the political arena and the conviction that screaming at politicians did not image Jesus Christ well. Then I met Brent Alderman and was introduced to Capitol Commission. Brent showed me that I should treat politicians the way Jesus commissioned us to deal with all people on this planet. I should pray for them and disciple them. Tension resolved. I thank God for putting this ministry into my life and look forward to many more years in partnership together for His glory. Thanks ~
