Ralph Drollinger and the CapMin Global Directors met last week for progress reports and to chart the course for the ministry’s future. The growth includes 20 new discipleship Bible study ministries to international political leaders that are set to launch in as many foreign federal capitals by year’s end!
The directors are Oscar Zamora, Latin America; Jon Cassel, Africa; Slavik Rimski, Europe; Inoke Kubuabola, Oceana; Brian Solomon, North America; Brian Hanson, International Director; and Dr. Dan DeShong, Local Government Ministries.
“Given the maturation and the personnel increases to this team, we believe we can complete the establishment of new ministries in 20 federal Capitols by December!” Ralph said. “We also have in sight planting five new ministries in American state capitals.”
“That equates to enormous growth! And keep in mind there is no one else in this space who is actively working to establish Bible-study based ministries in the seats of civil governments around the world.”
Brian Hanson, International Global Director, said it was a humbling experience for the directors to learn of CapMin’s progress by their colleagues in other parts of the world.
“Not only were we able to pray for each other and particular needs that were expressed, we also were challenged by the growth that we see taking place as well,” Pastor Hanson said. “The opportunities for expansion are wonderful and you will be hearing more about that in the days ahead.
“We pray that God continues to show His favor upon this ministry and continues to open doors like we so often see Him doing. In all that was accomplished, we say, ‘To God Be the Glory!’”
Drollinger added, “In addition, we have set a goal to include 120 of our ministry leaders at our Washington, D.C. Training Conference in late November.”
Dr. DeShong, who heads Local Government Ministry expansion worldwide, said the meetings were inspiring. “We were especially blessed to learn of the growth in all (CapMin) theaters around the world.”
CapMin is in the process of a year-long recruiting effort to increase Local Government Ministry Bible teachers. Those ministry leaders are scheduled to meet separately for meetings and training January 15-18, 2024 at Gateway Seminary in Ontario, California.
“We praise God for developing such a strong team of CapMin Global Directors for the expansion of His work around the world! It’s wonderful to see what the Lord is doing through these men. All praise to Him!” Ralph said.
Dr. DeShong added a request for CapMin supporters to “please pray for the growth and significant logistics of this great mission to turn the tide of our country and help develop relationships with elected officials to lead our country through the lens of Scripture.
“How can we expect the direction of our country to change if those who govern don’t have a Christian worldview borne from their own faith and allegiance to Christ? Anything less than that is just political change at best.”
Capitol Ministries asks prayer partners and supporters to pray for these directors, for new ministries they are raising up, that God would open doors for international and local government ministries and for God’s leading and guidance.
