Bad News / Good news! Bad News First....

There is an advance in America away from church, away from religion and the pace has advanced. [READ ON]

Good News:

Even though the culture is progressing away from the Lord, the hearts of man have the same exact problem. Men still have the same God-shaped hole in their souls that they always have! The good news of Jesus Christ, which is the very power of God (Romans 1:16-17), is the answer. Capitol Commission is bringing the advancement of the gospel and God's voice into State Capitols across America. 

  • "I love the work Capitol Commission is doing." -Dr. Albert Mohler, Historical Theologian, President Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
  • Montana Ministry Pastor - "I use Capitol Commission's prayer tool  and it is by far for me, the greatest tool for building rapport with all the leaders in our Capitol [both Republican and Democrat]." -SB

Ministry Highlights:

  • Thank you for making the Tenth Anniversary Celebration a huge success. Your response was so encouraging! Many partners outside NC celebrated with cards and special donations. More than 150 people attended October 17th. They heard moving and powerful testimonies from State Ministers and Legislators across the nation. These testimonies presented how the gospel is impacting leaders in legislative communities at State Capitols. Kelvin Cochran, a great fan and supporter of Capitol Commission, preached a powerful message on “God Blessing a Hundredfold in Suffering”. The Lord used the night to help people understand the powerful impact this ministry has and as a result, many new partners in ministry were added! [See pictures above]
