Distinguished statesman Rick Perry is inviting local government officials across the United States to read the Capitol Ministries Bible studies that he valued so much as a national leader of our nation.
The former U.S. Secretary of Energy who also served as Texas governor is spearheading CapMin’s effort to reach the 500,000 city and county elected and appointed public servants in 40,000 incorporated local communities.
By email invitation, Secretary Perry is offering to send one Bible study per week in the year-long, 52-study Oaks-in-Office; Biblical Essays for Political Leaders series to those who request them.
These are the same studies that Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries led in three separate Bible studies to members of the White House Cabinet, U.S. Senators, and Representatives in Washington, D.C.
Capitol Ministries studies are “in-depth, theologically sound, and they drill deep in Scripture,” Secretary Perry wrote. “They helped us all understand more about God, biblical truths, and what God expected of us as leaders.”
Numerous local officials have already accepted Secretary Perry’s invitation and have begun reading the studies that provide a progressive faith journey to help create a strong spiritual foundation, shape character, increase faith, as well as examine crucial policy issues through the timeless lens of God’s Word.
Secretary Perry is heading the effort in keeping with one of CapMin’s long-established objectives.
“A mission of CapMin is to reach every elected leader every year with the gospel of Jesus Christ,” Drollinger said. “Secretary Perry will eventually send an invitation to all 500,000 local government leaders. We would greatly appreciate it if you would join us in praying that God would direct and bless this effort.”
A related goal is for CapMin to establish weekly Bible studies in local communities where leaders may study the Bible face to face.

You will be connected to CapMin’s Dr. Dan DeShong who is in charge of recruiting and certifying Local Government Ministry Leaders nationwide.
Secretary Perry said the study would greatly benefit the seeker who wants to learn more about God, or the seasoned Christian who desires to grow in his or her faith.
“I can’t wait for you to see what is waiting for you,” he wrote. “I know that this experience will enrich your life as it has mine.”
