Rep. Gary Click recently participated, along with Capitol Ministries, in the 49th annual American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) conference in Atlanta, Ga. that was attended by hundreds of conservative state legislators.
Rep. Click took the opportunity to encourage CapMin’s ministry leaders—the men who lead Bible studies to local and state public servants. Here is what he said:
“Brian Hanson and Brian Solomon and Capitol Ministries make a huge impact on the Ohio Legislature. We meet every week and we look forward to it. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).
“There are so many legislators in Ohio who are believers but we all need that weekly inspiration from other men of God. Being a pastor myself as well as a legislator, sometimes it’s nice for me to be fed instead of being the one who is feeding other people.
“I am thankful for everything Pastor Hanson and Pastor Solomon do. I am thankful for everything Capitol Ministries does, and for other CapMin ministry leaders in whatever sphere of influence they are working. Persevere. Don’t become discouraged.
“I like what John Quincy Adams said, ‘Duty is ours, results are God’s.’
“Sometimes you might not feel like you are getting through or accomplishing what you want to accomplish, but God is always at work whenever you are in obedience to Him.
“People like me need people like you. God bless you, keep up the great work!”
