As customers and consumers, we have come to realize that many of the faith-based businesses and attractions available in our nation remain largely undiscovered. If we were able to easily locate and recognize these treasures, it would make choosing and planning family friendly vacations, organizing educational field trips and scheduling inspirational excursions for church groups and tour groups more convenient. Ultimately, the discovery of these diverse, Christian-based destinations would greatly enrich our lives. Just as importantly, we have also come to realize that some Christian-based attractions and companies are struggling with the lack of public awareness, and in reaching their target market. Although not the case for all companies, some small companies and non-profits attempts at mass marketing on an individual basis can be cost prohibitive. Our mission is to preserve the Christian treasures in America for the glory of God. It is two-fold, both to aid Christian companies in reaching their target market in the tourism industry, and to give the general public convenient access to Christian based attractions, entertainment, recreation, educational opportunities, and spiritual retreats on one centralized site. Are you looking for a quick and easy way to find fun-filled adventures for your church group? Planning a family friendly vacation and need some entertainment ideas the whole family will love? Do you need help making your home-school lessons come alive? Want to go on an inspirational tour, but you have no idea where to start? We hope you enjoy Christiantreasureseekers.com, where we have done the searching for you! Let us help you easily discover the treasure trove of amazing Christian attractions and destinations across our nation, with this one convenient search tool.

True Girl (formerly Secret Keeper Girl) At True Girl, we believe it is possible to raise a girl who is confident in her faith and in herself, even in this culture. While moms may feel ill-equipped to navigate their daughters through the pressures of her tween years, studies show that parent-child connectedness is one of the main risk reducers for all the pressures tweens face. That’s right, moms: you are a key player in saving your daughter from all of the hurt that you fear she will face. True Girl makes this connection easy by creating opportunities for moms and daughters to discover deep Biblical truths together, so you’ll grow closer to each other and closer to Jesus. Because once she knows the Truth, it will set her free.

We created Landmark Events to encourage and edify families by preserving providential history and facilitating events that prepositionally address the ethical issues of our time. Historian David McCullough suggested that trying to understand the future without learning from the past is like trying to plant cut flowers. All our knowledge, our beliefs, our world-view, our identity, and those of the generations to come are rooted in the verities of history, which are based, in turn, on the infallible and inerrant historical truths of the revealed Word of God. Without history—religion and philosophy, the arts and sciences, mathematics, language, music and literature have no meaning. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Douglas Southall Freeman rightly observed that “history is the great lamp that illumines every other study; without it, we grope in the dark.” Every person, event, and nation is a product of the past and we cannot escape that fact. See full article here. At Landmark Events we are passionate about teaching history to the next generation. When our children, and we ourselves, study true history they will develop a sense of context, understanding that they are not a random occurrence amidst a sea of random occurrences, but uniquely placed in time. The […]

Tour the oldest Church in the continental USA San Miguel Chapel was erected in 1610 to serve the Spanish military that had settled in this area. Original documentation was either sent back to Spain or was burned in the Pueblo uprising when the roof and part of the structure was burned. Documentation does exist as far back as 1628 making San Miguel the oldest church in the continental United States with services continually provided since it was built. Few people question whether or not the San Miguel Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest Church in the United States, but many do question just how old it is. It is no easy task to sift historical fact from traditional belief. The earliest documentation we have of the existence of San Miguel Chapel is from 1628, so we know it was built sometime before then. Oral history holds that San Miguel Chapel was built around 1610, and it has been rebuilt and restored several times over the past 400 years. The original church, the “Hermita de San Miguel,” was built on the site of an ancient kiva of the Analco Indians. It is believed that it was constructed by […]

The goal at Rice and Beans is to go into all the world and make disciples of Christ. We study that Christ was always meeting people exactly where they were and then calling them out into a faith that grew them and transformed their lives. Modeled after His example, we strive with each action in hopes of meeting people where they are and help lead them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Meeting the needs of many people often begins with meeting their needs of hunger through the flesh, then meeting their spiritual hunger through the Word and Prayer. Rice and beans are a staple food for many South and Central American cultures, therefore they give a perfect avenue to meet many needs for families all across the region. However, simply providing food for families is really only the beginning of what Rice and Beans is all about. Throughout the year, various construction teams build new churches, houses, classrooms, and many other structures that enable the people of Costa Rica. Bible studies are organized in homes. Day camps are formed so that the children have the opportunity to do what children do best, play. The food bags help us […]

As we have spoken with outdoorsmen and women about church, one of the statements we hear time after time is that they feel like they “have a horn growing out of their head” every time they enter a church. That’s kind of fun to picture in our minds, but not so funny when you’re the person trying to enter a church for the first time or after years of searching for a church home where you can fit. Paradise Outfitter Ministries is a different kind of church. We have designed our worship services, programs, and teaching style with ourdoors men, women, and families in mind. Even our worship times are scheduled to accommodate the weekend angler, hunter, sportsman, camper, etc. Outdoorsmen have a tendency to work hard and play hard. Our worship times are scheduled with that understanding. Come and check out a different kind of church. Jeans, shorts, T-shirt, camos, work clothes . . . come as you are. We want to guide you to a better understanding of the God who created the majestic outdoors we enjoy so much. We also offer an open archery range, car shows,bass fishing, hunts, and other special events throughout the year. Visit our […]
Rediscover Biblical Jerusalem… The story of the City of David began over 3,000 years ago, when King David left the city of Hebron for a small hilltop city known as Jerusalem, establishing it as the unified capital of the tribes of Israel. Years later, David’s son, King Solomon, built the First Temple next to the City of David on top of Mount Moriah, the site of the binding of Isaac, and with it, this hilltop became one of the most important sites in the world. Today, the story of the City of David continues. Deep underground, the City of David is revealing some of the most exciting archeological finds of the ancient world. While above ground, the city is a vibrant center of activity with a visitor’s center that welcomes visitors for an exciting tour to the site where much of the Bible was written.

As one moves through the site, one comes in contact with archaeological excavations and thrilling biblical finds […]
