General Session Speaker
David Barton is the Founder and President of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.
WallBuilders is a name taken from the Old Testament writings of Nehemiah, who led a grassroots movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore its strength and honor. In the same way, WallBuilders seeks to energize the grassroots today to become involved in strengthening their communities, states, and nation.
David is the author of many best-selling books and addresses more than 400 groups each year. His exhaustive research has led him to be an expert in historical and constitutional issues. He also serves as a consultant to state and federal legislators and has participated in several cases at the Supreme Court.
David and his wife, Cheryl, reside in Aledo, Texas and have three grown, married children, and three grandchildren.
David’s General Sessions
America’s exceptionalism encompasses great diversity of race, ethnicity, and religion, and has benefited every American. For several decades of indoctrination in both education and politics, we have been taught America’s flaws but little of its matchless benefits. Five principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence have produced blessings for America. Discover these principles and learn what every citizen can do to restore America’s greatness.
Keeping Truth in History
America has developed a severe case of historical amnesia. Not only have we forgotten how we became the most stable and prosperous nation on the globe, but now we often feel compelled to apologize to the world just for being Americans. Five specific historical attacks launched over the past century have now found a permanent home in American media and education. Learn about the five attacks and how to quickly identify and negate their harmful influence. Preserve the understanding of America’s greatness for generations to come.
David’s Workshop Sessions
God in the Constitution
The courts and secularists have weaponized the Constitution to limit public religious expression rather than protect it. They have convinced many Americans that the Constitution is godless. Seven specific parts of the Constitution establish its generally religious and explicitly Christian nature. Learn about these important clauses deliberately ignored by today’s secular-minded scholars and judges. It’s time for us to know and help restore the original intent of the Constitution.
Four Centuries of American Education
Religion, morality, and knowledge have formed the core elements of American education for four centuries, but in recent decades a secularized approach to education has gained prominence. This workshop discusses the effects of both religious and secular philosophies and presents stories of early American heroes in the field of education.
Know the Bible
Hear surprisingly bold historical declarations from U. S. Presidents across two centuries on how the Bible shaped American society and culture along with unequivocal evidence of its benefits to daily life. But in the past 50 years, the knowledge of this influence has diminished, especially within the faith community. In fact, most Christians today have not read through the entire Bible even once, and have thus accepted the modern secularist doctrine of compartmentalization. Come; discover the true and positive influences of the Bible on American life.
