When Pastor Dale Walker began ministering to the 213 members of the New York Legislature in January 2013, he knew of only three Christians.
Hoping to win more souls for Christ, Pastor Walker developed Bible studies with challenging topics such as, “Do Government Leaders need God?” Not many people attended, so he began visiting offices and started with a Legislator whom God had put on his heart. After a friendly 45-minute talk, he asked if the Legislator knew what it meant to be born again. The Legislator said he wasn’t sure, so Pastor Walker explained the Gospel.
“The next thing I knew I was asking him if he wanted to ask Christ to come into his heart and he said he did,” Pastor Walker said. “He reached over and closed the door and accepted Christ.”
Over the next 18 months, Pastor Walker has visited numerous offices and has seen 13 Legislators and 1 Legislative Director come to Christ. He is now in the process of discipling them. As the legislative session ended in June, Pastor Walker is making appointments to travel the state of New York and visit Legislators in their district offices.
“One thing I have learned is that God makes divine appointments and He can cause me to meet anyone He wants me to meet,” Pastor Walker said. “I think that is because God wants people to know Him and I am a Gospel on wheels.”
Capitol Ministries and the New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation (NYFRF) partner together to support Pastor Walker’s ministry.
