The Bible tells us that the people rejoice when the righteous are in power.
“And that is exactly what we need to have happen in Africa,” said Jon Cassel, Regional Director for The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), West Africa. “We need righteous people who are following biblical principles who can elevate their nations to where they should be so they can honor Jesus Christ and the population can rejoice under righteous government.”
Ministering to government leaders in Africa has long been an objective of Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries. To achieve common goals, Capitol Ministries has partnered with Cassel and CBN, to plant ministries in non-English-speaking African nations.
“In addition to continuing to plant and upgrade ministries in US state capitals, we will be making numerous trips to these countries in the coming year to surface qualified, indigenous capital ministry leader candidates with an eye toward a week-long training conference in Dakar, Senegal in the fall of 2015,” Drollinger said. “We are so thankful for the long-time friendships and passion of CBN’s leadership to partner with us to make this happen for God’s glory and the health of these nations.”
The ministries will be established through numerous contacts Cassel has made in 20 African countries while working for CBN. The model may then be used to plant ministries across Africa. CBN is a global ministry founded by Pat Robertson that is committed to preparing nations through mass media for the coming of Jesus Christ. CBN broadcasts programming to 147 countries and territories in 65 languages.
“My heart just explodes with pride that Ralph desires to take Capitol Ministries to these countries,” Cassel said. “They are in desperate need of the Gospel and righteous governance.”
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. – Proverbs 29:2
