Trump Campaign Staffers Hold Online Bible Study Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
The group of two dozen staffers meets before work for Bible study
President Donald Trump’s campaign staffers on Friday held an online bible study amid the spread of the deadly coronavirus across the United States.
National Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany wrote on Twitter:
“We managed to do our weekly Bible study digitally!"
“Loved joining my friends from the Donald Trump campaign and GOP this Friday morning.”
But this is not the first time the prayer group got together.
Trump campaign employees have conducted the weekly Bible studies since February.
Every Friday, the group of two dozen staffers meets before work for Bible study, reading Scripture for about 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of community prayer.
Those who attend are treated to bagels, and staffers who find themselves on the road can call in.
“This is oftentimes the most powerful part of our time together because you can feel Christ at work,” a campaign staffer told Breitbart News.
The event became more important to attendees who find themselves separated from colleagues and working from home amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Friday’s online study session was led by Dr. Tom Mullins, who is a member of the Evangelicals for Trump coalition.
“There is nothing more meaningful than coming together in prayer,” McEnany said.

She described the group’s weekly Bible study as “the most inspirational part of our week.”
“As Christian men and women, our Bible study helps us to keep our eyes and mind on Christ,” she continued.
"It offers a time to pray for our President and pray for our nation.”
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump declared an official National Day of Prayer.
The National Day of Prayer took place on March 15, after the president announced it.
“We are a country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these,” Trump wrote on Twitter after making the official declaration.
President Trump is encouraging all Americans to take time on Sunday to pray for their country and fellow citizens.
