A liberal arts education makes people free. It is also the best preparation for leadership. How does this happen, and what relevance does this have for your family? Using stories of American struggle and sacrifice, this conversation will offer a practical guide to how you can help your children become leaders worthy of the blessings of liberty.

Dr. David J. Bobb, president of the Bill of Rights Institute, will join us as the Fall lecturer in the Great Conversation Series at Covenant. His presentation will be followed by Q&A and a dessert reception. The event is free of charge. Please RSVP to sfredricks@covenantfw.org.
