WHY CAPITOL COMMISSION CALIFORNIA?

This ministry:

1. Meets an Important Need
California is the most populous and some would say the most influential state (for better or for worse) in the most powerful nation on earth. Wow! As the Apostle Paul preached in his day to leaders throughout the Roman Empire (Acts 9:15), we need to help our leaders to know and be strong in the Lord.

2. Fills a Unique Niche
We are inside the State Capitol reaching out to leaders in a way that no one else is. As Paul rejoiced in reaching “Caesar’s household” (Philippians 4:22), we are grateful for the doors God has opened and we dare not neglect our opportunity.

3. Is Changing Lives
We are committed to clear and loving proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ and solid Bible exposition, which, unlike politics, never fails to accomplish His purposes (Isaiah 55:11). See these moving quotes from legislators and ministry leaders.

4. Has Potential For Greater Impact.
In 2013, we will continue with outreach, in-depth Bible Studies, and pastoral visits for Legislators, State Leaders, Staff, and Lobbyists. We will also step out in some exciting new ways such as Pastors for Legislators™ - connecting and training a local church pastor to reach and disciple each of California's 120 legislators in their home districts, and producing more written discipleship materials for leaders. As leaders grow, they reach more leaders, and our nation and world benefit.


Thank you again for your partnership. Capitol Commission California is funded entirely by donations and receives no funding from our national office or from the state. We continue to operate on a tight budget with no reserves and growing expenses. Nevertheless, we are moving forward while trusting the Lord for an additional $3,000 per month so that we can continue to reach California’s influential leaders. As God directs, thank you for partnering with us financially. Contributions of any amount are appreciated and are tax-deductible according to IRS regulations. We are accredited by both ECFA and GuideStar, and finances are always handled with integrity and care.

Merry Christmas!

Your Missionary to California’s Government Leaders,
