Nation Changers Gala


Join us at StoneBridge School's Nation Changers Gala!

Learn how we can empower and equip the next generation of our nation's leaders!

Saturday, April 15, 2023, 6 p.m. at Hilton Norfolk The Main, Granby Ballroom, 3rd floor.

Did you know you are in a war? A war that is waged against the souls of children—your children. The average American child spends 30 hours a week in school, often confronted and taught ideas that conflict and rail against biblical truths. Then they spend another 30 hours being entertained by media that explicitly shows relationships and actions that defy the Word of God and Christian morality.
Do you know how much time is used to combat the onslaught? Just 45 minutes a week—a Sunday morning sermon!
“The battlefield for the hearts and minds of our kids is the 16,000 hours they spend inside American classrooms from kindergarten to twelfth grade…It’s the 16,000-hour war for our kids and our country,” says Pete Hegseth, Co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend.
With such inadequate training against progressive ideologies, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that only 5% of college freshman in Virginia are Bible-believing Christians. And some of those are picked off along the way to college graduation.
But we are not without hope or a solution. StoneBridge School has been graduating students prepared to fight the good fight of faith on college campuses and in various career fields across the country for more than 40 years. Our graduates enter college empowered and equipped in Christ—ready to lead, serve, rightly reason, and challenge any vain philosophy.
We know we have the solution to restoring the Christian character of this nation and we want to empower more Christian families across the Hampton Roads region to prepare their children using the same classical Christian education that shaped the minds of our founding fathers.

We hope you will join us for an evening of celebration, direction, and giving at our SBS Nation Changers Gala, April 15, as we work to equip the next generation of Christian leaders. Don’t miss out. Purchase tickets by April 8.
