A Great Opportunity

“And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.”  Mark 12:42-44

The_Widows_MiteDear Brethren,

Christianity, America and the whole of Western civilization is at a cross-roads. If we are to lay a foundation of applied Biblical Scholarship for the express purpose of cultural renovation for the next generation the time is NOW. If we miss this opportunity it may very well be too late for any progress in the years to come.

The New Geneva Academy in conjunction with its parent non-profit Theological Institution the ITR has been given a tremendous opportunity by the merciful providence of God. The ITR has just secured a substantial piece of property across from its already existing library of more than 100,000 books, pdf and microfiche documents in downtown Appomattox, Virginia. The purpose of this purchase is to build a small conference center with additional library space which will house the R.J. Rushdoony Library of 48,000 books, making New Geneva and the ITR one of the largest libraries in Virginia, if not the largest to date.

The facility will be used as a research and resource center to train cultural leaders, ministers, evangelists,200px-Genevan_Consistory gospel ambassadors and statesmen. It will be like the Geneva of Calvin’s day where Knox once commented that the school at Geneva was “The most perfect school of Christ that ever was on earth since the days of the Apostles”. We want to realize this once again as we embark on a new reformation.

While we have the property we do not have the funds to build the building. Wonderfully, however, new construction prices in Appomattox are relatively low compared to other U.S. cities. Moreover, Appomattox is located in the heart of Virginia, easily accessible from several of the East Coast States and developing quickly.

widows-mite1In order to realize this we need others to share both the vision and the passion that we have for this project. We are asking you to give like the widow gave in Mark 12. We need to raise approximately $200,000 – $225,000 for this to become a much needed reality.

This building will not only house the conference center and the library, it will be coupled with our existing building to provide a campus like atmosphere for both our students and the entire community.

Will you please consider being part of this project?

Countering the Revisionists

Please assist me in promoting this project from my good friend Bill Heid. He is producing professional audio CD dramatizations of GA Henty’s work which have been the bedrock of literary education for many years.

Lee CD CoverHis latest work focuses on ‘General Robert E Lee in Virginia’ featuring the voice over by Kirk Cameron, Sean Astin and others. [He is currently producing the history of the Common Law of England via King Alfred whose passion for God’s Law framed Western Civilization’s jurisprudence.]

The work seeks to impress upon young and old alike the love and accuracy of History and its influence on Western Civilization from an explicitly Christian vantage point.

With a growing national disdain for real American History and its Christian impact upon our nation this work is timely.

Please do everything you can to promote this on your blogs, Facebook pages, Google Plus page,Twitter and anything you can think of. Share it with others and encourage them to promote it as well.

Thank you.

Geneva College Blackboard

Last month New Geneva launched a new blog site “New Geneva Ambassador School Blogspot” @ http://ambassadorschool.blogspot.com/

This type of content will take the place of our original WordPress commentary.

This Blog will now be used for both students and professors. It will promote new courses, modular schedules, semester recommendations, resource links on related course topics and a host of other pertinent material.

Student and teacher comments will be allowed  provided they are edifying. Rude and argumentative posts will be promptly removed. We, at New Geneva, hope that this new venue will be used for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom by assisting God’s people.


‘Indoctrination – Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America’

Before July 23rd of this year, I had only heard of Joaquin Fernandez by a dear friend who constantly told me that Joaquin and I had to meet. That day finally arrived last month at the American Vision Super Conference “Sovereignty and Dominion”. Joaquin is doing a great and timely work. I trust you will be as thrilled as I was at his project.Deo Vindice!

Indoctrination: To instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., esp. to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.

“IndoctriNation” is a 90-minute documentary film that takes the audience on a panoramic exploration of one of the most important and controversial issues in the history of mankind, the issue of education.

Traveling all over America with his family in a big yellow school bus and conducting a series of candid conversational interviews, Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschool father of seven children living in Texas, is on a quest to discover the origins of our modern educational system.

What he discovers is a masterful design that sought to replace God’s recipe for training up the next generation with a humanistic, man-centered program that fragmented the family and undermined the influence of the Church and its Great Commission.

The filmmakers leave no pages unturned in their pursuit and identification of the framers of our modern educational state-run monopoly. The film engages the defenders of the status-quo, as well as the leaders of the movement to a return to a biblical model for education. And they challenge—on camera—compromising church leaders and agents of political expediency who, in the name of reform, are causing countless little children to stumble and fall prey to a myriad of social and personal maladies sponsored and sanctioned by the enemies of God and His church.

This film is part documentary, part testimonial; a confessional and a rebuke; and above all, a challenge and an encouragement to millions of Christians who need to know what history, experience, and the Holy Scriptures have to say about what is perhaps the pivotal issue of our time: the discipleship and training of God’s children.
