A Mocksville native, the Rev. Steven Cox, a pastor in Simpsonville, S.C., joined a group of  ministers visiting government leaders on Capitol Hill recently as part of the Capitol Connection Ministry.

Formed six years ago by Evangelist Chuck Harding  to reach Capitol Hill with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, he reached out  to pastors all over the country to come to Washington DC for several days in March and help him reach members of Congress.

They also met with Vice President Mike Pence.

“Our goal for the whole meeting is to encourage our representatives by prayer. We ask them for nothing which is normally what they are used to. We present them with a Bible, some gospel literature and a beautiful book from the Capitol Connection,” Cox said.

He was raised in Mocksville from the age of 5 until two years ago when he took a church in Greenville, S.C. He is the pastor the Bible Baptist Church in Simpsonville. His father, Pastor Darrell Cox, has been minister of the Trinity Baptist Church of Mocksville for the past 34 years.
