HE POLITICAL ARENA OF THE WORLD IS OUR MISSION FIELD. Capitol Ministries exist to help fulfill the Great Commission by bringing the Word of God to a nation's leaders from the start of their careers in local government to the highest levels they reach. Across our country — and around the world — Capitol Ministries recruits, trains, and develops local Ministry Leaders, godly Bible teachers, who are skilled in evangelism and discipleship. We send them into the political communities and partner them with Legislators who sponsor the ministries, provide a meeting place inside the Capitol, and invite their colleagues to attend Bible studies. To those Legislators the Ministry Leaders deliver weekly in-depth exegetical Bible studies that are specific to the personal as well as political decision- making needs of these Public Servants. ey disciple Christian Lawmakers, minister to them one-on-one, and evangelize those who do not know Him and lead them toward maturity in Christ.

Here is the face of Moses who provided the law. Capitol Ministries Bible study has been very helpful to me personally.
