Verna Marie Hall, Cofounder
At her first awareness of America’s decline and degeneracy, Verna Hall began research that led her to understand that the cause was not economic or political, social, or even moral—but spiritual. Willing to lay down her life and focus entirely on God’s call, she compiled and published, and taught everyone who would listen. This resulted in a still-growing mountain of testimonies of changed lives and ministries spawned to restore Christian character to our nation. When the Lord took her home, she was compiling a series on “The Biblical Foundations of the Constitution,” to include the root, the fruit, and the restoration of America to its providential purpose in God’s plan. Verna was a master builder, hearing from the Architect, and faithfully laying to the plumb the foundation stones for America’s next generation of statesmen. In 1965, she co-founded the Foundation for American Christian Education, which is today still dedicated to continuing to build true to the design God imparted to Verna Hall—reminding America of her Christian heritage of liberty through Christ, self-government, and Biblical principles. Among her most noteworthy books are The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States: Christian Self-Government, Vol. I, The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States: Christian Self-Government with Union, Vol. II, The Christian History of the American Revolution: Consider and Ponder, George Washington: The Character and Influence of One Man, The Bible and the Constitution of the United States of America.
If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?Psalm 11:3
Rosalie June Slater, Cofounder
From the moment she first glimpsed Verna’s “big red book,” God called Rosalie Slater out of a secular doctoral program in education to partner with Verna Hall and teach the answer for the restoration of America. She gleaned from Miss Hall’s rich compilations of early American history the historic method of Biblical education that produced Gospel liberty and Christian civil government. She restored that method, which she named the Principle Approach®, to American Christian education. Together, in 1965 they established the Foundation for American Christian Education, which produced endless testimonies glorifying God, now reaching a third generation of families in America and other nations. Her vision was to see the Bible as central to all areas of learning and free Americans to be once again self-governed under God. Among her most noteworthy books and publications are Teaching and Learning America’s Christian History: The Principle Approach, The Bible and the Constitution of the United States of America, The Noah Plan Literature Curriculum Guide, Noah Webster: Founding Father of American Scholarship and Education and all the volumes of The Journal of the Foundation for American Christian Education, (Volumes I, V, VI, IX).
