Greetings, Jamestown Quadricentennial enthusiasts! We are less than three weeks away from meeting you in Jamestown and celebrating our Christian and American Heritage! The staff of Vision Forum Ministries is thrilled with your participation in the celebration of God’s providential hand in the founding of America as we observe Jamestown’s 400th birthday.
There are now over 3000 registered attendees for the celebration and we anticipate having to cap the weekend at Fort Pocahontas soon! As with any worthy endeavor to honor the Lord, there will be challenges along the way. In the event that there are changes made to schedules, speakers, or venues, we will post updated information to this page. This page will also serve as a means of posting updates while in Jamestown June 11-17. Please make sure to log-in for daily updates.
