Seminar 1: God’s Hand in the Building of America

The first 12-hour seminar is entitled “God’s Hand in the Building of America,” subtitled “Raised Up For This Very Purpose.” This seminar rebuilds and rekindles within each person an appreciation of the fact that the Founding Fathers were truly inspired of God and that God’s hand was indeed in the settling and building of this great land. Not only will seminar participants be taught about the greatness of the American Founding Fathers, but they will also understand how the Lord graduated the Founders from His very unique “University of Hard Knocks!”

All Americans need to appreciate the manifest destiny that the God of heaven did not establish the first free people in modern times just to see them collapse into oblivion.

This country has to be a standard and model for the nations of the world, and we can only rise to the occasion as well as we understand our own purpose.
