Having heard Don Gardner, leader of Capitol Commission recently, I am well convinced he is truly a serving man of God. I was so impressed when he shared how he stands at the doors of the galley during legislative sessions so he can be available day in and day out to minister, encourage and pray with our state leaders. This has been SO VALUABLE to our leaders as they testify about the terrible bullying and ugliness that can take place on the floor along with trying to convince immoral issue votes to be changed. God Bless Don and his sacrifice to this ministry and to our leaders.
Capitol Commission is fulfilling a strategically important role of providing pastoral support to public servants who are engaged in visible and high-pressured leadership roles that are often accompanied by ethical dilemmas, physical and financial hardships and stress on families. CC provides a context and avenue for prayer, wise counsel and encouragement for these politicians. Based on numerous firsthand testimonies I have heard, I believe investing in the ministry of CC makes a positive difference for these men and women.
Praying for our government leaders is something I now do each day, after learning of the work Capital Commission does to encourage and bring God into our government houses. Frank Erb California State Director works tirelessly to serve The Lord in the mission field of Sacramento. Thanks to Frank, I am now aware of the difficult job our elected leaders face with demands, distractions and temptation. I believe the work of this organization serves God with each State Director bringing light into a some times dark place in our country.
I have found the website www.Pray1Tim2.org to be a very helpful tool in praying for our state and national leaders. It provides an easy way for me to encourage and thank them for serving us by the connecting links.
I met Ron Bigalke, State Director for Georgia, and his wife at an informational luncheon in downtown Savannah last year. It is a privilege to partner with a ministry that is there to serve our legislators and be that refuge of strength and hope as they wrestle to make the laws for our state. I highly recommend Capitol Commission!
I have been privileged to know the Chief Executive, Jim Young, when he headed the NC group and now to see him as the national coordinator of what I think is one of the most needed organizations we could have. Capital Commission has been faithful to its mission of reaching out to the legislators and their surrounding support of staff and family with one goal in mind and that is to bring them all to a better understanding of the Gospel that they may be better and stronger in their own lives and in the decisions they make for our states. To support our political decision-makers through prayer, fellowship, and wisdom of the Word is to give true life to those who effect the lives of so many. To care that those legislators know truth and loving support is the heart of Capital Commission. May they always be able to provide that kind of support to all of us through their work in the halls of state governments throughout our country.
