Join me, Owen Strachan, Jason Duesing and more for Midwestern Seminary’s New England Study Tour this May 17-24, sponsored by The Center for Public Theology.

The New England region is home to a challenging culture with a rich heritage, and you will get to travel its storied roads alongside professors and fellow students to get an up-close meeting with this American mission field. We'll walk where Edwards and Whitefield walked, visit everywhere from Yale to Harvard and coastal Maine to rural Vermont, meet with local pastors and church planters, and even enjoy some local eateries and coffee.

Why should you go?:

to get a firsthand encounter with NE history
to see the current gospel work in NE
to learn more about the distinctive theology that shaped NE
to see where the American missions movement began
to grow closer as a group and enjoy fellowship together

Tour stops:
Harvard, Yale, Princeton (JE archives--see actual "Sinners" sermon), Northampton (Edwards & Brainerd), Plymouth, Malden MA (Judson), Burlington VT (NETS), Portland ME, Boston, Providence (Brown & FBC), Newburyport MA (Whitefield burial), and more

Cost: $1900
