I am happy to announce today that through a partnership between Capitol Commission and the Kentucky Baptist Convention I have begun a new ministry serving the Kentucky State Capitol community as a State Minister. For the past fifteen years I have served as a pastor focusing on the ministry of teaching God’s Word verse-by-verse and shepherding God’s flock. For the last 7 and a half years I have served at Farmdale Baptist Church of Frankfort, Kentucky, where I will continue to serve. The opportunity to serve as State Minister allows me to extend that same pastoral ministry to the capitol community (a community that includes elected officials from all three branches of our commonwealth’s government and an extensive staff).
The belief that undergirds this ministry is that the Word of God alone has the power to change people’s lives. The Scriptures are the means that God uses both to save the lost and sanctify believers. Therefore, this ministry will provide weekly Bible studies at the capitol and offer biblical counsel to those who desire this type of ministry.
Additionally, this ministry will seek to provide prayer support for those involved in government. The Scriptures command all believers to pray for those in leadership (1 Timothy 2:1-4). Therefore, I commit to pray for and with the members of the capitol community and to encourage the Christian community of Kentucky to do the same. Please consider your own act of obedience to pray for our state and nation’s leaders by using the Capitol Commission prayer tool Pray1Tim2.org and subscribing to receive a daily email reminder.
For more information about the ministry I will be doing with Capitol Commission, see here. If you would like to partner with us to provide biblical and evangelistic resources to the capitol community, you can make a tax-exempt donation here. Above all, please be in prayer for me and this ministry opportunity.
