These Top Trump Officials Attend a Weekly Bible Study

'They are so teachable, they're so noble, they're so learned,' says the group's instructor of his students

Members of President Trump’s Cabinet attend a weekly Bible study, according to a new report.

CBN News noted that once a week, about a dozen members of the Cabinet gather to study Scripture. Among those who regularly attend: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life,” Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries told CBN News. “They are so teachable, they’re so noble, they’re so learned.”

According to the Capitol Ministries website, the sponsors of the White House ministry include the regular attendees as well as Vice President Pence, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

“Mike Pence has respect for the office,” Drollinger said. “He dresses right — like it says, Joseph cleaned himself up before he went to stand before the Pharaoh.”

Pence plans to join the study as his schedule permits. Additionally, President Trump is invited to the weekly studies and receives Drollinger’s teachings.

Drollinger founded Capitol Ministries in 1996. Since then, he has started Bible studies in state capitols and foreign capitols, and he does weekly studies with members of both the House and the Senate.

“Making disciples of Jesus Christ in the political arena in the United States of America and in foreign capitols around the world has been the mission of Capitol Ministries from our beginning,” the site reads. “Like Paul, we are following God’s command to reach the leaders of our troubled world — for only through obedience to God is true hope and change possible.”

Drollinger noted that Sessions will apply what he learns at Bible study to his job.

“He’ll go out the same day I teach him something, and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable, and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town,'” he said.
