Our mission is to re-establish the presence and influence of the Bible into American public schools.
Re-Establish Bible Education Within Our Public Schools
Our Mission Is Clear
Our Founding Fathers created a nation under God.
The 1962 Supreme Court decision to remove Biblical teaching within our public schools is unConstitutional.
Our goal is to re-establish Bible education within our public schools.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Blessed with Christian parents and grandparents, I was saved at an early age and my earliest memories are of going to church regularly. Scouting was a main focus for my Jr. High years in Hawaii where Dad was stationed in the Navy. The highlight was obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout in 1956. I was a leader in both junior and senior high youth groups in my local church and became the area leader of the local Christian Endeavor (CE) for the So. Calif. area for a year.
After high school came several jobs and marriage in 1963 to the cute little blond girl who lived down the street.
That was over 50 years ago and is still the second best decision I ever made.
Of course the first was accepting Jesus Christ as savior in 1956 at a Youth Summer Camp in Idyllwild, California.
Being a full-time worker and a student carrying 12 units per semester at night for four years was trying but satisfying when the A.A. degree was finally earned in 1964. No more school until the Lord opened the door for a free education at a Christian College in 1974. Along the way while working at my own Honda Motorcycle Dealership I moved across the street from a guy you may know, Chuck Seldon. That was a life changing association that is still going on today. Chuck and I have been through the experience in New Cuyama with the Foundation for Airborne Relief organization and have then supported each other and our families ever since.
I cannot relate here all the blessings and “blessings” that the past 40+ years knowing and working with Chuck have brought into my life. We have beat each other up on the tennis courts, around the ping pong table, almost died on a skiing trip in Wrightwood, rode Chuck’s 4-wheelers behind his house in California, cleaned out a ton of clothes from his rental house, rode bikes all over Boise, and a long time ago in New Cuyama we lived on pig milk, food gleaned from local fields and donated stale bakery products, AND we each swam 50 miles and earned the Red Cross Swim-Fit award and patch. As two families bonded by an unwavering faith in Christ, we have laughed and cried together through some happy, sad, and “interesting” moments including the current times we find ourselves in.
My major focus outside work has always been my local church association. Choir and praise team singing, holding positions of Deacon or Elder in several churches depending on where the job took us, and currently the Deacon of Finance/Human Relations here in the Estacada First Baptist Church. My “specialty” has been to create the Fund Accounting system needed by churches to track the various ministry assets for proper accounting.
While I do not possess the academic credentials to be a spokesperson challenging current public school curricula, I am willing to play a small part to bring His name back into our public schools. But then God never really relied on a person’s credentials to accomplish His purposes. For example, when He needed to deliver the Israelites, God picked a baby who was then under a death threat to be put in a basket in the Nile River to start the process. When a king over Israel was needed God picked a sheep herder, the youngest son in his family. And, when He needed a savior for the world, he started with a young girl, willing to do whatever was needed, resulting in a baby being born in a stable. As the song says, this is such a strange way to save the world, but it is God’s way which is always the best way!
I am pleased to accept the position of Treasurer of Our Godly American Heritage and look forward to learning more about the organization, its mission, goals, and getting to know my fellow Board Members, whose arms may be as sore as mine from the “volunteer persuasion techniques” applied by Chuck to get you on the Board.
Please contact me to impart your wisdom and suggestions as to how this office of Treasurer should be functioning under my tenure and where the money comes from to keep things running. My contact information is at the top of this epistle.

Boise Tennis Coalition - Veterans' Program
The Boise Weekly newspaper ran an article describing Chuck Seldon’s initiative to help returning veterans adjust to “normal life” with the assistance of the Boise Tennis Coalition.
The article was published in October 2011, but the program continues today, through 2013 and beyond.
“The Group Welcomes Veterans Home
with Free Tennis Equipment & Lessons”
-- Boise Weekly, Stephen Foster
“A local group is hoping to help ease veterans back into civilian life with some friendly games of tennis.
The Boise Tennis Coalition is a collective of senior citizens that meets a few times a week to trade volleys of a less-than-lethal nature.
“’A lot of veterans are coming back soon, and when they do, they’re separated from their life-and-death buddies in the service,’ said Charles Seldon, president of the Boise Tennis Coalition.
‘Then they get into town and there are no jobs.
They sit home and think that this is the country they fought for and now they can’t get a job, or anything!
A lot of them have battle fatigue and others have mental stress, so we’re hoping some tennis can make things a little easier on them.’“
“Though the Boise Tennis Coalition is primarily made up of senior citizens, all ages and skill levels are welcome.
The Coalition has members who teach lessons, and they intend to help beginners and novices become familiar with the game.
In addition to free lessons, veterans will be provided free rackets, balls and other necessary supplies to get them started.
“‘The point of this is to have fun,’ said Seldon.
‘Tennis is just such a fun game because you get to come here and have a good work out, make friends, have fellowship and enjoy the game.’“
