Presence is powerful!

Capitol Commission is somewhat unique in our presence to your legislators. 

How? This legislator explains.

“[Our Capitol Commission State Minister] was a permanent fixture in the state Capitol during the legislative session.  He stood by at all times to observe and reach out to anyone needing prayer and support.  In past sessions we have had a chaplaincy-type program, but I haven’t noticed before anyone sitting in committee hearings in an attitude of unobtrusive prayer as I witnessed [your State Minister] doing.  I, and 10-12 other legislators, attended his weekly study on the gospel of John and were fed and encouraged by his teaching.  I felt he went over and above caution to honor the time constraints we all worked under, and was never anything but helpful.”          Representative          M. W. -  District 8, S.D.

Think of how this “presence” is opening hearts to the gospel for such a time as this!

There is great need to reach our leaders with Biblical teaching, God's wisdom, pastoral care and the transforming gospel. We are there! Our presence is opening doors.

Would you Donate to Capitol Commission to keep this work strong during these crucial days? 

Ministry Highlight Brief:

  • North Carolina: State Minister Bert Jones reports 40  legislators and staff participating in Zoom Bible Study!
  • Texas: Covid did not stop Texas State Minister Scot Wall from teaching internet led Bible Studies. Legislators from both sides of the aisle expressed passionately the power of Scot being present with them in this way.  Glory to God! FYI: Scot and his family have recovered- thank you Lord.
  • Ohio: State Minister John Hansel reports meeting many State legislators. The work is  advancing strong.  
  • California: State Minister Frank Erb reports fifteen additional legislators have joined internet led Bible studies.

You are invited to one of our National Gathering sessions. "Is Your Religious Freedom at Risk?" September 1, 2020. This event will feature International Ambassador at Large for Religious Freedom Sam Brownback. More information next week!
