    Welcome to Capitol Commission Kentucky.

    It is a privilege for me to serve the Kentucky State Capitol community as the Capitol Commission Kentucky State Minister in fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission in Matthew 28;19-20 as well as Paul’s exhortation to pray for elected leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-4). I am committed to minister to and pray for everyone from the janitor to our governor at the Kentucky State Capitol.

    The primary focus of Capitol Commission is three-fold. First, is the Ministry of Prayer. I encourage all believers, regardless of political ideology or denominational commitment to pray for each and every legislator and staff in our state capitol. One key resource in this regard is subscribing for free at https://www.pray1tim2.org/ where you can pray each day for our elected officials. Secondly, we are committed to the Ministry of Presence. Engaging with leaders and staff regularly to share the gospel, meet needs, and make disciples is a vital work of the ministry. The third priority is the Ministry of Proclamation. Gospel clarity and witness are important. This is primarily accomplished through weekly Bible studies for both legislators and staff as well as offering free resources.

    Through the means of these priorities, I hope to see the gospel of Christ accomplish three things. First, Redemption among the lost. The only hope of the world is the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that all we encounter may come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Secondly, Reconciliation. The gospel brings with it unity rooted in love. Given the divided context, it is my prayer to see our identity found first in Christ and through the gospel, genuine unity, love, and reconciliation take place. Finally, Relationships. What unites believers is not political ideology but salvation in Jesus Christ. Through discipleship, I hope to see genuine believers build relationship that reproduce in our communities.

    I am thankful to God for the news that Steve Weaver has joined the Capitol Commission ministry team as the state minister for Kentucky. His many years of pastoral ministry will allow him to shepherd the Kentucky Capitol workers and legislators of all political stripes in our beloved Commonwealth with prayer, encouragement, and biblical wisdom. His training as a historian will provide him with unique insight and perception into the difficult challenges our legislators face. Has there ever been a time in memory where such a ministry was as vital as it is in our present-day? What a comfort it will be to Christians in the state of Kentucky to know that a faithful pastor and Christian scholar is doing the work of a gospel shepherd among the workers and legislators in the Kentucky Capitol.

    I write to you today to show my support for you in your role as Kentucky State Minister. The ministry you provide to us in the Capitol has been a very important part of my experience here while I fight for the needs of my constituents back home as well as all of the citizens of the Commonwealth. Your commitment to pray for those in leadership, and the Capitol community specifically, as well as encouraging the Christian community of Kentucky to do the same is of the utmost importance. Thank you for your time, dedication, and service.
