"In the last almost 13 years that I've been here, I've never sung in the rotunda of the Capitol. I've always set it up for other singers to do so. Rep. Louie Gohmert asked if I would sing for him and the group and I was honored to do so," -Nathan Kistler wrote on Facebook

Video of the two-minute performance shows a crowd gathered around Nathan Kistler as he sings with a full heart. Some spectators can be seen recording the powerful spiritual moment while others appear to be listening intently as if they were praying.
Kistler is the executive director at Hope to the Hill Ministries in DC, which aims to encourage, support, and minister to powerful politicians who are carrying the heavy burden of leadership.
"In the last almost 13 years that I've been here, I've never sung in the rotunda of the Capitol. I've always set it up for other singers to do so. Rep. Louie Gohmert asked if I would sing for him and the group and I was honored to do so," Kistler wrote on Facebook.

During a previous interview with CBN News, Kistler explained that Hope to the Hill provides prayer and pastoral support for all those God has put in office.
"So many members, when you go into their office, say, 'Well, what can I do for you today?' And we just say we don't want anything from you. We just want to know how we can pray for you," Kistler told CBN News. "And it's amazing to see members—I've had anything from they kind of shrug a little bit to crying because they've never had anybody come into their office and ask how they can pray for them."
Hope to the Hill also trains lawmakers on how to share their faith with others.
Kistler urges Believers to call their representative's offices and simply offer encouragement to their staffers.
"Just say, 'Hey, I'm praying for you. God loves you. I love you, and we appreciate the work that you do,' and build a relationship," Kistler told CBN News.
