WallBuilders' David Barton To Speak At Tea Party Event Sept. 6

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

The Chattanooga Tea Party will present David Barton, nationally-recognized author, speaker and founder of WallBuilders, on Friday, Sept. 6, from 6-9 p.m. at Stuart Heights Baptist Church’s Hixson Campus, 1505 Cloverdale Dr. The theme will be “One Nation Under God.” Admission to the public is free. 

Mr. Barton is the author of numerous best-selling books, with content drawn largely from original writings from the Founding Era. He has also hosted several televised programs on American history and heroes, including The American Heritage Series and Foundations of Freedom, featured on TBN and Cornerstone Television. 

“We’re delighted to have David come to Chattanooga and talk about the importance of God to our nation’s founding,” said CTP President Brendan Jennings. “Our founders understood the lessons of history and man’s fallible nature. We forget those lessons at our peril.”

WallBuilders is a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on moral, religious and constitutional heritage. WallBuilders’ stated goal is to exert a direct and positive influence in government, education, and the family by educating the nation concerning the Godly foundation of our country; providing information to federal, state, and local officials as they develop public policies which reflect Biblical values; and encouraging Christians to be involved in the civic arena.

Although there will be no cost to attend the event, donations will be welcomed to help defray costs.
