For more than two decades, WallBuilders has brought Faith Leaders from across the nation to Washington, DC, for exclusive briefing sessions with some of the top Christian Senators and Representatives now serving in Congress. This year we are excited to bring the semi-annual conference back to our nation’s capital!
In conjunction with the Briefings, participants enjoy a private, evening Spiritual Heritage Tour of the United Stated Capitol with David and Tim Barton, hosted by a Member of Congress, and covering artifacts and rooms usually not seen on public tours of the Capitol. Attendees are uplifted by the stories of many Godly heroes honored throughout the building as David and Tim bring new life and perspective to the rich, spiritual history represented throughout this great building. These events are truly inspiring, and you will be blessed!
Frequently Asked Question
There is no charge for the Pastors’ Briefing; however, all attendees are responsible for arranging and booking their own travel and accommodations.
Pastors’ Briefings are intended for pastors and ministry leaders – those who exercise substantial influence in the church.
We invite spouses to participate in these events as well. Any spouses of ministry leaders must also be registered to attend. Please use the ‘Add Another Registrant’ button to register your spouse.
Please note: Due to limited space and the nature of these events, children and additional family members are not encouraged to attend.
The purpose of these events are to provide an unique opportunity for ministers to hear from the hearts of some of the top Christian congressional leaders in the country. Our hope is that pastors will return home encouraged and educated about the issues of the day that affect faith and family and will be inspired to share with their congregations what they may do to take a more active role in the political process.
WallBuilders’ Briefing policy prohibits attendees from distributing gifts or flagging down the speakers before or after their presentations. Direct contact with the speakers needs to be arranged with that speaker’s office prior to your visit. (This means no “pictures in the hall.”)
While photos are both welcomed and encouraged for the Capitol Tour and the Briefing session, please remember that our policy does not allow for personal photos with any of the speakers.
Arrangements for personal photos must be prearranged and confirmed through that individual speaker’s office and may not take place during the WallBuilders Briefing.
Please note: Video and audio recording of the speakers is strictly prohibited.
The Briefing will kick off on Tuesday evening with the Capitol Tour beginning around 6 PM. Events on Wednesday will be held throughout the day. Specific details will be sent to confirmed attendees as the briefing date gets closer.
Washington Reagan National (DCA) is the closest airport, located about 15 minutes from Capitol Hill.
Baltimore Washington International (BWI) and Washington Dulles International (IAD) are each about 45-50 minutes away. Depending on the cost of airfare, it may be cost-effective to fly into BWI or IAD and take a cab to DC. (Factor in a cab fare of about $50 each way.)
*Note: If departing Washington on Wednesday evening, make sure that plane reservations are not scheduled for earlier than 7:00PM to avoid missing the conclusion of the Briefing.
If you are flying in, we strongly recommend that you do not rent a car. Parking on Capitol Hill is unreliable and difficult. There are taxis or other ride services (Uber, Lyft, etc.) available to choose from for transportation purposes.
However, if you are driving into the District, we recommend that you park at Union Station and take the Metro down to the Capitol South stop (there is virtually no parking around the Capitol). When you exit at Capitol South, you will be directly behind the Cannon House Office Building and across the street from the Capitol.
The Metro is a fantastic mode of transportation and highly recommended. The Capitol South stop will deposit travelers at the appropriate location for then walking over to the House Office Buildings.

Please allow plenty of time for travel on Tuesday so that you can check into your hotel before the Capitol tour as there is not a place to store luggage during the tour. The same holds true if you are planning to leave on Wednesday right after the Briefing. Please be sure to plan accordingly.
