Ralph Drollinger, who leads weekly Bible studies for members of the House, Senate, and President Trump’s Cabinet, has ambitious plans to set up similar ministries targeting public officials in every state capitol and every local government in parallel with a global expansion in capital cities. Drollinger’s Capitol Ministries announced on Saturday, “Ministry Leader positions are open in several states, and Capitol Ministries is looking to fill them with men who are enthusiastic about creating discipleship ministries to political leaders.”
“We are seeking proven, intentional, deliberate, biblically reliant disciple makers who are passionate about evangelism and about teaching the Word of God,” said Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries. “Our leaders seek to be audacious and intrepid as the ministers in kings’ palaces (Proverbs 30:28).”
Drollinger’s weekly gatherings are supplemented with his written Bible studies, which teach that the government’s job is to “quell evil” and punish sin, and argue that a variety of right-wing economic and social policies are mandated by the Bible.
Candidates will get training at the U.S. State Capitol Ministry Leaders Conference, which is scheduled to be held in California this November 27 – December 1. Last year, Drollinger held a training conference for the group’s “global directors” at the Museum of the Bible in Washington.
Women need not apply, as Drollinger teaches that the Bible does not permit women to teach men. There are extensive requirements for the position. Note that “Ministry Leaders are self-supporting missionaries” and a candidate should be “capable of raising support for his ministry.”
