2014 Festival. In 2014, the Providential History Festival took a trip back through American History with keynote speakers Dr. Marshall Foster of World History Institute, and Dr. Phillip Kayser of Biblical Blueprints. The festival enjoyed music brought to us by the Jost Family. We not only looked into providences after its founding, but also took a look at providences of preparation long before America was founded, and considered how a study of these providences can give us faith concerning the future of America. We hope that you found the 2014 festival both educational and encouraging. Click here for pictures and more information.

2015 Festival. Exploring God’s Providences in Science and Astronomy was the the theme in 2015. We were blessed to listen to keynote speakers Mike Chapa, a pastor and retired U.S. Air Force test pilot, and Dr. Jonathan Sarfati of Creation Ministries International. We also learned much through, and enjoyed radio theater, table displays, essays and more! Some also got to try their hand and their head in a chess tournament with Dr. Sarfati, and many looked on as Mike Chapa gave a telescope presentation to our attendees.  Click here for pictures and more information.
