What We Do
Members of the Columbus Center and Restoration Generation engage in rigorous study of the Constitution and writings of the Founding Fathers. Students of the “Freedom Formula” teach courses in the community.
American & World History
The Columbus Center provides college-level online courses and seminars on various American and world history subjects. Classes are broadcast live and recordings are available to students who register.
The Constitution was intended to be a pattern of successful self-government for the nations of the world. The Columbus Center needs bilingual patriots who want to participate in teaching in foreign countries.

WHY THE COLUMBUS CENTER?
Although Christopher Columbus never lived under or participated in constitutional government, his commitment to the spreading Christianity around the world reminds us of the ultimate goal of free government: freedom of religion, or freedom of conscience. The “gospel of freedom” must pave the way for the spread of religious ideas and our efforts to perpetuate the principles of free government internationally will open doors to future religious outreach efforts.
