I’m so excited to reveal a few 2018 scheduled events. We would love to have you join us. This year’s lineup is looking amazing.

Save your dates!

  • Mid-Missouri Legislator’s Dinner Event – Tuesday, April 17 in Jefferson City.
  • Classic Legislator’s Golf Tournament – Tuesday, June 26 in Lake of the Ozarks – Osage National Golf Club
  • Southwest Missouri Legislator’s Dinner Event – September (TBD) in Springfield.

One reason I love the Spring is it kicks off our annual events. We celebrate the 9th Annual Capitol Commission Mid-Missouri Legislator’s Dinner Evening on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 6:00 p.m.8:00 p.m. Event location is Concord Baptist Church, 3724 W. Truman Blvd. Jefferson City.

We have a great line up of legislators and friends attending; as a friend of the ministry, I hope you will join us. You will be encouraged by Missouri legislators and State leaders sharing their journey of faith. Enjoy a meal with friends.

The Mid-Missouri Dinner is right around the corner! Register now at, or email, you can also text John at 573.355.4161.

In an arena of ideologies, values and convictions, often in conflict, Capitol Commission offers unity in a pluralistic culture. As a non-partisan and non-denominational organization our message is one of hope, faith and love. Rather than a political message to the state capitol, we bring the “good news” of Jesus Christ. That’s exactly what our Annual Capitol Commission Dinners are about: an evening of hope, faith and love. 

This type of ministry is built on trust, relationships, and effective service. It requires one to be present in-order to participate. Capitol Commission is a self-funded ministry. Our dinner event is the primary venue to raise the necessary financial support to bring the Gospel of Jesus to Missouri legislators and state leadership. 

“It is a genuine encouragement to have Capitol Commission in the Missouri State Capitol and to join dozens of legislators and others who regularly attend the weekly Bible Study. The world of politics intensifies the temptations that confront every Christian, and Capitol Commission provides an authentic anchor-point for spiritual awareness, stability, and growth.” Senator Ed Emery.

As always, THANK YOU for your friendship with Capitol Commission.

Serving the Missouri State Legislature,

John A. Battaglia, D. Min.
Capitol Commission
Missouri State Minister
