There are four general phases of ministry growth for Capitol Ministries, which involve a comprehensive strategy for achieving – Lord willing – our stated ministry objectives in America and throughout the world.
Phase 1: The State Capitol Community
√ Place 50 men in 50 capitols to make disciples among the elected and appointed leaders in all three branches of state government every year—executive, legislative and judicial. Approximately 18,585 individuals, not including staff and lobbyists.
Phase 2: The U.S. Capitol Community
√ Launch a ministry in Washington D.C. to make disciples of the 1,446 elected and appointed officials serving in the 3 branches of the federal government. If staff and lobbyists are included, this figure reaches into the millions.
√ Establish Capitol Ministries’ World Headquarters offices adjacent the U.S. Capitol; a base from which the ministry can expand into foreign nations.
√ Encourage the Church in America to regain a proper biblical posture toward government (evangelism and discipleship) through our annual Pastor’s Day at the Capitol event. This event will draw hundreds, if not thousands, of pastors from around the nation for several days of outreach on the hill. These pastors will receive training while in D.C. that will help them transform their local government communities with help from the Capitol Ministries’ Ministry Leaders in the states.
Phase 3: The Local Government Community
√ Reach America’s vast local government community by using Ministry Leaders in the states to recruit and train, in conjunction with local churches, lay people for ministry among County Supervisors, City Council Members, and the numerous other local government agencies that feed the State Legislatures and U.S. Congress. There are approximately 440,000 locally elected and appointed officials across the nation.
Phase 4: The International Political Community
√ Expand the ministry worldwide using the U.S. ministry’s staff resources and the numerous political disciples that have been made.
