We come to our nation’s capital not looking for Democrats or Republicans nor liberal or conservative. Our purpose is not political in any way. We are gathering in our nation’s capital to personally engage the national public square of Capitol Hill and renew our personal and public covenant with God. Please register here to reserve your seat. We look forward to your participation in this meaningful and historic initiative.
During our time together in Washington, we will experience a wide array of exciting and empowering activities. At our opening dinner session, each of us will be given time to share with the group our own unique prayerful assessment regarding the state of the nation and of your community. By hearing form each one, we can learn from each other and build a common sense of our unifying purpose to revive the nation.
Our second day, Wednesday, brings us to the halls of Congress. Our first order of business will be the tour of the Capitol Building where we will highlight those important elements enshrined there that testify to the Providence of God as the root of America’s founding and destiny. Our morning schedule will be highlighted by a most significant Capitol Hill forum on the Role of Faith Leaders in the Public Square. Afterwards we will fan out throughout Capitol Hill to afford you the opportunity to engage your home district’s Congressional office. After we complete our Congressional office visitations, we will take an inspiring visit of the Supreme Court.
After dinner. . . we will depart for the Washington Mall for what will probably be the most meaningful and crowning experience of our whole time together. Beginning at the Washington Monument, we will embark on a 1.5 mile Prayer Walk for National Renewal. Along the way, we will be visiting some of the most memorable and significant shrines that embody the very essence of America’s covenant with God, including the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
Through this experience together we will renew “our prophetic zeal” as the conscience of the nation.
We invite you to be a part of this most historical and meaningful event. Each participant will receive a beautifully framed certificate at the concluding breakfast on Thursday morning. Spaces are limited and will fill up fast. Register now and reserve your space. Don’t miss this chance to be a part of this meaningful experience.
Hope to see you in Washington D.C. on June 10th. Registration fee for this event: $79.00
Our Co-Sponsors for this event is the Global Peace Foundation – USA and The Men’s Empowerment Network
