CM Ministry Leader: Missionary to Nebraska Legislators
"Most people think to be missionaries and make disciples of Jesus Christ, Christians have to travel overseas to a foreign country.
"But I feel one of most important places for mission work is in our own country, the United States of America.
"That work in the Nebraska Capitol starts with Perry Gauthier, who is the missionary to Legislators. And then it falls to the Legislators to be the missionaries to our constituents and to other legislators who are not Christians.
"It is very important that Perry is there.
If he were not, I can't say that evangelism would not happen, but it would be less likely to happen.
A lot of people don't view their legislators in that light, but this position provides a great opportunity to speak the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
-- Former Nebraska Senator David Schnoor.
Senator Schnoor is a 20-year decorated combat veteran, retiring from the U.S. Air Force in 2000 with the rank of Master Sergeant. He served as a Combat Controller in operations in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, and Haiti. He was awarded a Bronze Star with a "V" device for valor for his actions during the rescue of a downed helicopter in Panama. Schnoor was appointed by Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman to fill a vacancy in the Unicameral Legislature in 2014. He lost his bid to retain the seat by a very slim margin in the 2016 election.
When he was in office, Sen. Schnoor regularly attended the Bible studies led by Perry Gauthier, Ministry Leader to the Nebraska Legislature and Capitol Ministries North America Affinity Sphere Director.

What God Says Makes A Nation Great
Ask the pundits, TV commentators, the expert analysts, even the man on the street what makes a nation great and you will get at least a dozen different answers.
They will range from the education system; the treatment of the less fortunate; good manufacturing base; sensitivity to environmental concerns; a strong economy; a mighty military; and on and on and on.
But this week Ralph Drollinger takes that question to the Bible to see what God’s Word says makes a nation great.
In the study he will teach to U.S. Cabinet Members, Senators, and Representatives in Washington, D.C. Drollinger looks to the book of Proverbs, written by King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived and who ever will live, to answer that question.
The answer is righteousness – both in citizens and leaders – is the single most important virtue any nation can possess.
Read Five Definitive Characteristics of Righteous Leadership this week along with the leaders of our nation and learn the cause and effect relationship between righteousness (right-way-ness) and exaltation.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people, Proverbs 14:34.
What is the biblical prescription to Making America Great Again?
This book examines that question.
