Our Spring Tour will be in Charlotte on April 26-27. We have planned a
wonderful visit to Charlotte, the Queen City. It is
surely one of the most Presbyterian places in the
country, with two Presbyterian universities, a
seminary, and 48 PCUSA congregations within the
city limits! For part of our tour, we will be learning
about the very interesting past and the exciting
present of Presbyterian higher education in this part
of our state. We will also be inspired by beautiful
historic churches and their missions withing the city. View the 2019 Winter Newsletter for more information and registration form.
