Pastors’ Day at the Capitol

By Jerry Cox, President • Family Council

Imagine the echo of worship, the prayers of godly men and women and the gospel openly proclaimed in Arkansas’ most prominent place — the State Capitol Building!

Ministers, church leaders and their families can be salt and light by joining together from all over Arkansas in the State Capitol Rotunda from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 7, for Pastors’ Day at the Capitol.

This nonpartisan event will focus on worshiping God, praying for our leaders, ministering to those in authority, fostering better relationships between ministers and legislators, practicing responsible citizenship and learning how congregations can do the same. This is an opportunity for church leaders to:

• Be encouraged, empowered, inspired and informed;

• Be a witness for Jesus Christ through prayer, praise, and worship in the Capitol Rotunda;

• Fellowship with like-minded pastors from all over Arkansas over a light breakfast and lunch;

• See lawmakers debate bills and pass laws, and learn how the legislative process really works;

• Tour the State Capitol Building;

• Learn how churches can fulfill the biblical mandate to pray for those in authority;

• Get to know some of Arkansas’ leading policymakers; and

• Meet state legislators and other high-ranking state officials.
