Over the years we’ve heard from many who want to visit great Christian ministries like the Creation Museum, Ark Encounter, and Pacific Garden Mission; or learn about our Christian Heritage in Chicago, Washington, and Boston. We’ve worked to provide inexpensive opportunities to travel to the various Christian ministries and historic sites with knowledgeable guides, and have appreciated the many who’ve travelled with us in 2018!
March – Creation Museum / Ark Encounter
Since the Ark Encounter opened in 2016, VCY has brought hundreds of listeners to visit the incredible outreach ministry of Answers in Genesis. Our three day trip includes a visit to the Ark and the Creation Museum in Hebron, Kentucky.
April – Chicago Field Museum with Carl Kerby
Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope held a training day at the Field Museum in Chicago. VCY brought a group down to join Carl Kerby for an incredible day of teaching and hands-on exploration!
May – Unshackled / Pacific Garden Mission
In May we took a day trip to Chicago to explore our Christian heritage, stopping at the grave of Billy Sunday, exploring the incredible collection of Biblical artifacts at the Oriental Institute, watching a live production of Unshackled, and touring the Pacific Garden Mission.
June – Washington DC Christian Heritage
Tim Schmig of Stories in Stone led a group of VCY listeners through Washington DC. We saw George Washington’s tomb, Arlington National Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, Museum of the Bible, and the White House!
September – South Dakota Creation Museum / Ark Encounter
In September we welcomed many of our South Dakota listeners to join us for a tour of the Ark Encounter! Departing from South Dakota we made our way to the Ark and the Creation Museum. On the way back we also stopped at the VCY Headquarters and Jim Schneider gave us a tour of the ministry.
October – Milwaukee Creation Museum / Ark Encounter
We took another group of listeners from the Milwaukee area to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum!
October – Boston Christian Heritage
Tim Schmig of Stories in Stone led a group of VCY Listeners to Boston to explore our Colonial Christian Heritage. We walked the Freedom Trail in Boston, explored Harvard, the Tea Party Museum and more!
Adoniram Judson graduated valedictorian from now-Brown University, but fell into Jacob Earnes’ friendship. Earnes was a skeptic, and soon Judson was adopting the unbelief of his friend. But something happened that changed Judson’s life!
December – Unshackled / Pacific Garden Mission
Our final ministry trip of the year was back to Chicago! Using our newly printed guidebook, we explored the Oriental Institute, Billy Sunday’s Grave, Pacific Garden Mission, and Unshackled.
