Founders and Prophets Tour 
Church and US History Tour
Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime summer tour as we visit the sites that built America and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For two weeks you will experience first-hand the amazing events of the restoration and the founding of the US in the actual places where they occurred.

We will weave together the history of both the US and the church as we experience Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Palmyra, Kirtland, Nauvoo, Independence, and many other amazing places.

As the tour progresses, you will come to realize that God’s hand was in the founding and preservation of our nation and the church. You will also discover that not only was God in the lives of those who went before us, but he is also in the details of our lives today.

Don’t miss this opportunity for an incredible life-changing event! Each tour has room for 100 participants. Space is limited so register today.
 Join us for the adventure of a lifetime! 
We look forward to having you with us!
