Capitol Ministries has been working in partnership with Jon Cassel, Regional Director for The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), French Africa, and CBN over the last several months to plant ministries in non-English-speaking African nations.
“The Bible tells us, when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn,” said Jon Cassel, Regional Director for The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), French Africa. “What we need in Africa are righteous rulers who are following biblical principles who can elevate their nations so they can honor Jesus Christ. Then the population can rejoice under righteous government.”
Planting discipleship Bible studies in foreign Capitols as well as establishing Bible studies in US local city and county governments are goals of Capitol Ministries.
“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,” said Ralph Drollinger, President of Capitol Ministries.
The ministries are being established through numerous contacts Cassel has made in 21 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.”
