How fortunate we are as this National treasure moved from San Francisco to Chesapeake a few yrs. ago due to Dr. Carole Adams' work to ensure every child reaches his full potential in Christ enabling them to practice Christian self-government protecting individual liberty in America. As a professional educator, Carole understood,

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports...... reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. (Padover, The Washington Papers, pp.318-19.)

Story of Father's Day - June 15, 2014

Fathers Day Card

He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers. Malachi 4:6

Father's Day is a beautiful festival that acknowledges and appreciates the important role played by a father in raising the child and consequently building a stronger society. Though fathers have been revered at all times by civilizations across the globe ironically what was missing until the last century was the official recognition of the significance of fathers in one's life. Father's Day story is the tale of realization of the need for a Father's Day festival primarily by Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd of Washington. The story narrates Sonora's unflagging struggle to officially set a day to honor all fathers. Thanks to Sonora, today Fathers Day is celebrated in a large number of countries around the world.

Virginia Christian Alliance Wishes Everyone a Blessed Memorial Day

Memorial Day Soldiers

Memorial Day: The Price of Freedom May 2014  Courtesy of the Family Research Council

Freedom truly is a gift from God.  Words engraved on Jefferson’s Memorial reflect that truth: “God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.”  And freedom is foundational to who we are as a people.  It is a part of the American DNA.  But freedom is not free. Jesus Himself said:

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Freedom requires sacrifice. And that is true for our nation. The cost of freedom is great.  The fight for freedom is never over.  We must fight to win it, and then we must fight to keep it.

May 13th: A Rally for Marriage in Richmond: Fighting Back!

Dean Welty

Fighting Back for Marriage & the Family! In Richmond --- Marriage under Fire! --- In Washington

Sign Up Now for May 13, May 27, and June 19

Marriage Under Fire!

The Attack:

There is no question that Marriage is under attack today in the same way that Life itself was under fire in the years leading up to 1973 when the Supreme Court “legalized” abortion. That was 55 million abortions ago, 55 million unborn babies sacrificed on the altar of our self-absorbed obsessions and conveniences. It was and continues to be America’s Holocaust.

The Dark Side of Technology Seminar Series Coming to Richmond on April 27, 2014

Brad Huddleston

—Brad Huddleston

Last month I was much honored to speak for the third year in a row at the Iron Sharpens Iron National Men’s Equipping Conference in Richmond, VA. The event was sponsored by Noble Warriors, led by Mike Young. It was incredible to see approximately 1200 men gather to worship and hear the Word of God preached with authority. It was three years ago that Greene Hollowell convinced Mike to give me a chance. I want to thank Greene for believing in me and Mike for taking that chance.

I have not seen a stirring in men like this in many years. My prayer, like yours, is that the Holy Spirit will continue to increase His activity among Christian men throughout the United States. As you know, we are in desperate need of revival.
