We have birthed ongoing outposts for Christ in more than 60 capitols throughout the world since our founding in 1996.
Jesus Christ’s Great Influence in Dr. Tom Price’s Life
Dr. Tom Price, former Secretary of Health and Human Services and former U.S. Representative, Georgia, 6th Congressional District, is a member of the Capitol Ministries Board of Directors. This is his Christian testimony.
“I was raised in a Presbyterian home. My maternal grandfather was a Presbyterian minister and my mom was ‘in charge’ of religion in our family. When I was in the 9th grade and going through Communicants Class, I had all these questions and my father and I would have serious conversations about all sorts of things, including his beliefs.
“My father had a big heart, but a rough exterior and wasn’t open to sharing much, so asking questions about his faith was out of the ordinary, it just wasn’t routinely discussed. In one of these conversations we finally got down to the real question, do you believe in Jesus Christ?
“He was raised as Unitarian, and he was a physician as well, and he said, ‘Well, let me put it this way, there have been times when patients I’ve been caring for by all rights should not have survived and yet they did, and I know God exists because of that.’
“That was very convicting for me and I decided at that moment to give my life to Jesus Christ. Before then I had been questioning in a way that would not have led me to resolve that Jesus Christ was my Lord and Savior. And when I made that commitment, it was an overwhelming feeling.
“As I began to mature as an adult, I felt such a sense of calm, resolve, and peace in so many situations when I should have been otherwise and I understood the great influence that Jesus Christ has in my life.
“My father didn’t share much, but when he did, in this instance, he provided the comfort and the courage for me to make my own decision and be able to say that I had been saved. I didn’t say it in that way at that time. We were Presbyterians and we didn’t talk that way. But I came to appreciate over time the transformation in myself and the optimistic sense and hope in salvation that I had from that moment on.”
Trials and Tribulations? Do Not Lose Heart!
Trials and tribulations come into the lives of all believers and when they do, does this cause you to lose heart?
The apostle Paul, who had tremendous struggles in his life after becoming a follower of Christ, offers believers today advice on tribulation and how to withstand it.
Paul’s instruction to believers is the subject of the Bible study, Tips for Tolerating Tribulation that Ralph Drollinger will teach this week to member of the White House Cabinet, U.S. Senators and Representatives in Washington, D.C.
Please read this study along with the leaders of our nation and learn with them what the apostle Paul says about how not to lose heart and become defeated by trials and tribulations, and how to discern the lessons they may bring.

Setting the Record Straight
Director Bridenstine is a sponsor of Capitol Ministries’ Washington, D.C. Bible studies, and he also spoke favorably about the ministry, and this has caused some in the media to accuse him of violating the Establishment Clause in the U.S. Constitution. Here, we set the record straight.
Tony Perkins, President of The Family Research Council, weighs in on this issue in his Washington Update. Read his story here.
