Welcome to Capitol Commission Pennsylvania!

As a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania, one becomes aware of the diversity that exists within our state. We are made up of a variety of people with differing perspectives. While our diversity is one of the things that makes our state great, it can also cause challenges for those who seek to serve and govern its people. In addition, the growing sentiment toward our elected officials in today’s age is increasingly negative.

Thus, the reality of being a Christian legislator is not without its challenges. Yet, there are men and women at our State Capitol that meet for in-depth Bible study and fellowship. In this difficult environment, these Christian legislators seek to live in a Christ-like manner. They have come to Harrisburg seeking to serve the public as they strive to make godly decisions in the discharge of their duties.

Our goal for this ministry continues to be the intentional development of disciples and disciplers of Jesus Christ in the political arena.

We seek to do this via,

1.) The Ministry of the Word: Along with the Bible Studies we offer at the Capitol, we also seek to meet personally with our government leaders to share God's word, pray with them, and provide any Biblical mentoring needed. Through this ministry, the Good News is made know to every state leader, regardless of party affiliation.

2.) The Prayers of the Saints: Paul charges every Christian in 2 Timothy 2:1-4 to be in prayer for their rulers and all those in authority. Our desire is to encourage and mobilize the local church to engage in a ministry to those in the political arena through the faithful prayers of the saints.

3.) A Servant's Heart: In an environment that is utilitarian by nature, we go as servants of Jesus, seeking to minister to the spiritual needs of those at the Capitol (Mark 10:45). In this, we believe the Gospel can be heard without hindrance as we strive to empty ourselves for those we serve.

Thank you for supporting this important work. This is a "by-faith" ministry and is supported entirely by contributions made by individuals and local churches. I hope you will consider partnering with us in this way.

Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions about this ministry or would like more information.

I have participated in the Capitol Commission's bible study in the Harrisburg, PA for over 4 years. I have found this to be a time of encouragement and biblical challenge that has helped me to grow spiritually and in knowledge. I find the other Members that participate have a kinship that extends outside the halls of the study and offers support during difficult times. Mr. Jeff Whitebread currently leads the study. I find his knowledge of the scripture, his ability to draw us into conversation and truly help us think through the lessons he has prepared for us is remarkable. I find this study to be priceless and one that I am thankful to be part of it each week.

Jeff Whitebread and Capitol Commission in Pennsylvania meet with lawmakers every week we are in Session to provide an opportunity for prayer and bible study that is both practical and relevant in equipping us to put our faith into every day practice. The fellowship of lawmakers, both republicans and democrats coming together to share their faith and prayer needs is a great encouragement as is rightly dividing the Word of truth through Bible study and thoughtful respectful discussion. This helps us to be grounded in what truly is important in terms of living a life in faithfulness and obedience to our Lord and Savior. I am very appreciative of the ministry and mission that Capitol Commission provides to us at the Capitol and wish them all the best in their efforts to fulfill the Great Commission through their continued dedication and commitment to share the gospel and its truths. Thank you for all your time, effort, and preparation, long commute to and from the Capitol and sacrificial expenses to minister to all of us. Many blessings to Jeff and Dave!

I have been a regular participant in the Bible Study conducted by Capitol Commission, since I first took office in 2007. Each Tuesday, when the legislature is in Session, we come together as Democrats and Republicans to have a special morning hour of prayer, Bible Study and fellowship. It has not only broadened my understanding of Scripture, but has helped me to apply the truths of the Bible to my role as a state legislator, and has given me an opportunity to build relationships with my colleagues. Jeff Whitebread, who leads Capitol Commission Pennsylvania, has become a friend and spiritual mentor.
