We live in a historic time with more women holding public office in the US than at any other moment in our nation’s history. From the mail-room clerk to the governor’s office, women are very involved in government, whether at the state or the national level.
Capitol Commission seeks to minister to these women with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, encouraging them in their work, being available for counsel, and upholding them in prayer, regardless of party affiliation.
My goal is to recruit a woman for every capitol where Capitol Commission is already serving, encouraging women to minister to women. I believe God has qualified women already in the wings waiting to be revealed and called to the work. I look forward to seeing God multiply the work that He has begun in Indiana, for He has opened doors and granted us favor to minister to women even within the offices of Governor Pence and Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, where these two choice servants warmly welcome us.
I recently authored a book, "Beyond the Ballot", a 13-week Bible study looking at the prominent women of scripture used by God to impact kings, capitols, and legislation. They were women from all walks of life, but had this in common, that they trusted God and His Word for their nation, and their personal life. These examples show us clearly how to pray effectively for our nation and leadership. "Beyond the Ballot" is available through rbpstore.org.

In Indiana four, soon to be five, of the top seven executive offices are held by women, and our newly appointed Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court is Justice Loretta Rush. As Mordecai said to Queen Esther: “And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
I look forward to continuing to be a part of the exciting work that God is doing among women in this age and arena.
