This one hour presentation at The Assembly Conference in Virginia Beach, April 26-28, 2007, presents the story of the Christian influence in the founding of the first permanent English settlement in America. Stephen McDowell looks at Rev. Richard Hakluyt, the man most influential in English colonization in the new world, and his motive "to inlarge the glory of the gospel." Mark Beliles presents God's hand in the events in the first years of Jamestown, Christianity in the early official documents, and how the early settlers fulfilled their desire to propagate the Gospel. This presentation also contains a 5 minute segment of a new film in production on the American Dream; plus, the song, "Destiny, Come Follow Me(Jamestown)" by John Phillips.
