Many of President Trump’s Cabinet members gather at a weekly session to study the Bible, the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) reported Monday.
Ralph Drollinger, the founder of Capitol Ministries, says he leads a weekly Bible study with Cabinet members such as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable. They’re so noble. They’re so learned,” Drollinger told CBN.
Vice President Pence, who is a sponsor of the faith sessions, reportedly joins the group when his schedule allows.

“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,’ ” Drollinger told CBN, referring to Sessions.
Drollinger, a former NBA player, founded his organization with the intent of spreading the Christian faith to lawmakers across the U.S. He has started similar Bible groups in dozens of state capitols as well as weekly studies in both chambers of Congress.
A weekly Bible study group with Cabinet members, Drollinger said, is likely the first of its kind in almost 100 years.
Trump, who is invited to attend, receives a copy of the scripture teaching each week, according to CBN, which has interviewed the president.
