The 2019 Pacific Northwest Christian Reconstruction Symposium was held at the Tall Timber Outdoor Retreat Centre in Leavenworth, WA. Individuals and families from around the northwest came to study the application of God's Word on every area of life.
Our annual event is an opportunity for Christians to learn about the Sovereignty of God and the principles and applications of Faith for all of life. The 2019 Symposium had three tracks:
1. Introduction to Biblical Law
2. Biblical Law
3. Christian Education

- Susan Eby
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.
