Will America be history’s final empire? With such a calculated history, could the birth of this nation be just coincidence? Or did the hand of God direct the formation of the New World? And, for what purpose? Explore the annals of history and discover the tapestry of events woven together to construct a brand-new empire. Each session will consist of a presentation by Pastor Shawn Boonstra by video with an in-person led discussion. Each guest will receive a free copy of Pastor Boonstra’s new book, Final Empire.
