Hollywood singer Steve Amerson ministers to hundreds of members in the Congress in America and quietly prays for them.
Meet Steve Amerson
Steve Amerson is known for his music in some of the popular movies in Hollywood like “Star Wars: Rogue One,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “The Patriot.” But amidst fame, his purpose remains as he also became the voice of hope for Democrats and Republicans in Congress, Faithwire reports. Apparently, the singer runs a ministry ministering to the most powerful men and women in America.
According to the report, Steve’s ministry became a quiet source of peace and prayer for the leaders in Congress. And he does them humbly and subtly.
Worship services in the U.S. Capitol began in 1800. In this event, pastors from different churches were invited to preach. But unfortunately, the services ceased in 1869.
“Thomas Jefferson would ride his horse from the White House to the Capitol to participate in these services,” Steve told the “Edifi With Billy Hallowell” podcast.
Voice Of Hope Inside Congress
Then in 2014, after a 145-year absence, worship services were brought back inside the U.S. Capitol.
“In 2014, I was approached by someone who said, ‘Hey we’re going to re-up these services in the Capitol,'” the singer recalled.
When the event started, the team had no budget. Hence, Steve voluntarily comes to lead worship twice a month in Washington, D.C. But soon after, God provided through the supporters and blessed the ministry to help him cover the costs of his trips.
Since then, worship services went back alive and active at D.C. On top of that, Steve began directly ministering to members of Congress.
“I typically would fly into Washington, D.C., on Tuesday afternoon, and the service was not until Wednesday night,” he explained. “And so I thought, ‘Well, what am I going to do with Wednesday?'”
Quietly Ministers To Members Of Congress
So, Steve came up with a plan to introduce himself to the people around the halls of Congress.
“I would write a note, ‘I’m praying for you,’ and I’d leave my card in the office,” he recounted. “And then I got a bit more organized. And with the help of my assistant, I have note cards printed with my name on the front. And my contact information on the back and, each time I go, these cards have … a different verse of Scripture.”
Further, Steve revealed that he writes a special handwritten note to each representative or senator. As a result, he would write 200 notes and walks about 10 to 12 miles to deliver them to the owners.
Testimonies From Congress
Steve’s initiative opened doors and inspired lives, and he shared testimonies from it.
“I walked into one office one day [and] the member’s sitting there,” he narrated. “He closes the doors. And he says to me, ‘I am so lonely … I’m lonely here on the Hill. I’m lonely when I go home to the district.'”
Because of that, it opened a door for Steve to connect with the Congressman.
Also, another member of Congress asked for prayer from him when they met in an elevator. And the two prayed together.
“As the elevator’s descending and I’m just praying. We get to the bottom, I miss my floor, we go past the basement — down to the sub-basement where the Subway’s at — and the member says, ‘God put you here for me today,'” he testified.
That’s how the Hollywood singer is making a difference in the U.S. Capitol. He is bringing the light and love of God to every corner of the place.
