The 2018 Pacific Northwest Christ Reconstruction Symposium was held at the Tall Timber Outdoor Center in Leavenworth, WA. There were so many in attendance for this incredible event. The symposium had three tracks:

1. Introduction to Christian Reconstruction

2. Family Business

3. Woman of Virtue

Our annual event is an opportunity for Christians to learn about the principles and applications of the faith for all of life. This year focused on the basic principles of the Reconstructionist worldview and the development of human, intellectual, and financial capital towards advancing the Kingdom of God in generational family economics.

Susan Eby and her husband Dan will celebrate 34 years of marriage this fall. Having grown up in a Christian home, she grew in the Reformed faith over the last 20 years through her husband's influence (in large part by reading the works of R.J. Rushdoony.)

After raising their three children and supporting her husband in his 12-year role as a pastor, Susan assisted Dan in his involvements in Christian political organizations and Christian education. Currently, she and Dan own a vacation lodging business in Leavenworth, Washington, and are also part owners of Patria Institute and Patria Academy International, a 6th-12th grade long-distance academy for Biblical worldview training.

Dan and Susan are truly blessed with their three grown children, two of whom are married, and all of whom live in the faith. Susan's very great joy is participating in the lives of their four (so far) grandchildren.
