Gettysburg–Washington D.C. Trip

Each summer, the Imago Dei Leadership Forum (IDLF) student experience culminates with an amazing cross-country journey to Gettysburg, PA and Washington, D.C.

After completing our 12 weeks of classes, we board a bus the first week of June for an 8-day trip of a lifetime! This is where everything comes together for the students, as we walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, take a behind the scenes tour of the U.S. Supreme Court, visit the U.S. Capitol and the floor of Congress, explore select national monuments and museums, as well as hear from Christian leaders in the media, politics and civil rights, including Shannon Bream (Fox News Anchor), Chaplain Barry Black (U.S. Senate Chaplain), Congressmen Robert Aderholt (R-Alabama), Tim Goeglein (Vice President for External Relations for Focus on the Family), Bob Woodson (President of The Woodson Center), and Dede Winkfield (daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Press Secretary).
