This historical and inspiring tour brings together stories of freedom and the American covenant. They are introduced with the birth of the United States of America and the nation's forefathers and how they viewed America and “the hand of Providence.” Today these stories are more important than ever.

Join Timothy Ballard, an accomplished author, and historian, and Bruce H. Porter, an ancient civilizations scholar. They will share amazing insights on the faith of pilgrims and our country’s forefathers that led them to establish life and freedom in a time of great difficulty. You’ll come to appreciate even more George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and lesser-known heroes including Harriet Jacobs from the 1800s American South. This will be a truly unique opportunity to see the historical sites and hear the stories of faith and freedom of our nation.

Covenant & Freedom Tour

George Washington’s beautiful plantation on the banks of Potomac provides an insightful look at the man and his world. As we explore his property, we will learn how his attitude towards freedom and the equality of man evolved over time as he faced contradictions on what America stood for.
