On Tuesday Family Council hosted Pastor’s Day at the Capitol 2024. Church leaders and elected officials gathered in the Rotunda of the Arkansas Capitol Building for prayer and worship and to hear special messages.

This annual, nonpartisan event focuses 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.

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

That’s why we tell people Pastor’s Day at the Capitol is one of the best things we do all year.

We appreciate everyone who joined us for this special day — especially Bishop Silas Johnson, Treasurer Larry Walther, Sen. Kim Hammer, Gov. Sarah Sanders, and our many other guests. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
