Join Westminster Theological Seminary for our Faith and Freedom Tour!
Westminster invites you to our Faith and Freedom Tour of Philadelphia and Gettysburg on July 15-18, 2015. This exclusive tour will be led by Dr. Peter A. Lillback and Dr. Harry L. Reeder, III. We’ll begin in Old City Philadelphia with George Washington biographer Peter Lillback. There we will see the important landmarks in our nation’s founding with a focus on the life and character of our first President. Then, we will travel to Gettysburg where Civil War authority Harry Reeder will lead us in the footsteps of soldiers, with special attention to the character of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Don’t miss this tour where you will engage American history while reflecting on the importance of the Christian faith in the founding of our country.
"One of our favorite parts of the tour was meeting 'George Washington.' My husband and I were amazed to learn the details of God's providential activity in the birth of our nation. Dr. Lillback's knowledge of and passion for historic Philadelphia were inspiring!" -Catharine, 2014 Faith and Freedom Tour participant
Dr. Peter Lillback will lead the Philadelphia portion of the tour. He is President of The Providence Forum, a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, defend and advance the faith and values consistent with our nation's founding.
