The outspoken and often-controversial pastor of First Baptist Dallas, Robert Jeffress, will preach at a private service before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday.

As first reported by CNN, Jeffress will speak at the service for Trump and his family, held at St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House. 

About 300 people, including Vice President-elect Mike Pence, are expected to attend.

Jeffress later confirmed the report and noted the title of his sermon in a tweet: “When God Chooses a Leader.”

The pastor later appeared on The O’Reilly Factor and promised to share the Old Testament story of Nehemiah, a builder chosen by God to restore Israel and to “build a giant wall around Jerusalem to protect the citizens.”

“Nehemiah kept plowing forward, and I see those qualities in Donald Trump,” Jeffress said. “He’s going to do what’s best for this country.”

Nehemiah is one of my favorites.. a brick in one hand and a sword in the other. Build and defend.

Nehemiah also encountered much local ‘opposition’, especially from those who wanted to continue the plundering of the land…………
