It’s hard to believe it’s fall!

One of the reasons I love the fall is for our Capitol Commission annual dinners for legislators. This year we celebrate our 8th Annual Capitol Commission Kansas City Dinner Evening on Thursday, October 26, 2017, 6:30 p.m.—8:30 p.m. Event location is Hilton Garden Inn 19677 E. Jackson Drive, Independence, MO 64057.

We have a great line up of legislators and friends attending; as a friend, I hope you will join us. You will be encouraged by our speaker, Dr. Michael Sprague, Louisiana State Minister; also, known as a leader among influential leaders. Enjoy a meal with friends.

The KC 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. 

“I am pleased that such an opportunity exists for the legislators here at the Capitol as Capitol Commission. We must make decisions that require a great deal of wisdom and the only place to find that wisdom is from God.  I appreciate the ministry of Capitol Commission in doing this in that it fills a need for legislators who are separated from their own faith communities while in session.  It is good to know the other fellow legislators who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and can support one another in prayer.  May God continue to bless and use Capitol Commission for His Glory.” Rep. Lindell Shumake

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

Serving the Missouri State Legislature,
