The D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship, a Christian ministry to legislators and staffers on Capitol Hill, has appointed the Honorable John N. Hostettler as its new Director.
Hostettler, who served in the House of Representatives from 1995 to 2007, was inspired by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy, who founded the Center for Christian Statesmanship in 1995 as a ministry training outreach of Evangelism Explosion International.
He succeeds the past Director of the Center, Dr. George Roller, who will continue to serve the Center in the new post of Ambassador. Hostettler will use his considerable experience in the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to minister to Members of Congress and their staff on Capitol Hill through the Center.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have John Hostettler as the new director of the Center for Christian Statesmanship," said Dr. John B. Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. "As the recipient of the Center's respected Distinguished Christian Statesman Award in 2004, John Hostettler understands the vital role Christian statesmen play in our nation, and is uniquely suited to help lift up that standard and train new leaders to live that out for the enrichment of our nation."
Since its founding, the Center for Christian Statesmanship has impacted thousands of lives by bringing a Gospel witness, Christian discipleship, and a vision for Christian statesmanship to leaders in Washington, DC.
The heart of the Center’s outreach is a series of Bible studies, conveniently held on Capitol Hill, offering sound biblical teaching and encouragement. The Center also offers Evangelism Explosion workshops to equip Christians in public service with the practical tools needed to share their faith. Based on Dr. Kennedy’s Evangelism Explosion program that has reached every nation of the world, the Center’s E.E. workshops help bring the Gospel to Capitol Hill.
