King's Meadow Study Center

About Us

King’s Meadow Study Center was estab­lished in 1991 by Dr. George Grant to help Chris­tians develop a cul­tural expres­sion of the Protes­tant and Reformed Chrisian world­view in art, music, literature, politics, social research, com­mu­nity devel­op­ment, and education.

We provide tools to educate, encourage, and equip individuals, families and organizations to apply a Biblical worldview to all spheres of life. In doing so, King’s Meadow is building reformation from the roots up—helping families display the Glory of the Gospel first at home and then to the entire world.

 

Dr. George Grant

Dr. George Grant first stepped into the rich tradition of Classical Education with self-study and exploration of the classics as a young adult. This burgeoning interest in Classical Education became a lifelong passion for Grant, who is now an established pastor and educator.
Originally (and always) a Texan, Grant moved his family to Middle Tennessee in the early 1990s where he started King’s Meadow Study Center. Grant’s views on Classical Education are influenced by the works of great Scottish pastor, social reformer, educator, author, and scientist Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847) and Dutch politician, journalist, statesman, and theologian Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920).
Like the men he admires, Grant wears many hats in his community: he is a husband, father, grandfather, mentor, president of King’s Meadow Study Center, the pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church, instructor at and founder of Franklin Classical School, chancellor of New College Franklin, writer, avid reader, runner, gardener, and barbecue master.
He is the author of dozens books in the areas of history, biography, politics, literature, and social criticism, and he has written hundreds of essays, articles, and columns. In addition to his regular classes in history, literature, theology, and the arts, Grant maintains an active writing and speaking schedule in this country and around the world. His writings on behalf of the homeless, international relief and development, racial reconciliation, and on the sanctity of life have been highlighted in varied media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Focus on the Family, The 700 Club, the Coral Ridge Hour, Point of View, Crossfire, World Magazine, Table Talk, and Christianity Today.
Grant has degrees in Political Science from the University of Houston (B.A.), Philosophy from Whitefield Theological Seminary (M.A., D.Litt., Ph.D.), Humanities from Belhaven College (D.Hum.), and Theology at Knox Theological Seminary (D.Min.).

 

Chalmers Fund

            The Chalmers Fund of King’s Meadow Study Center has been established to support substantive Christian discipleship and education through endowments, scholarships, and resource development—from Franklin, Tenn. to the uttermost parts of the earth.

 

 

Sum Ergo Zoom, Running Team

Loosely translated, “I think, therefore I run.” Team Sum Ergo Zoom participates annually in the Ragnar Relay—a 200-mile, 30-hour relay race from Chattanooga to Nashville to raise funds for the Chalmers Fund.
Sponsorship of this project goes to deserving recipients of the Chalmers Fund Scholarship—particularly at Franklin Classical School and New College Franklin.  For more information and updates about team Sum Ergo Zoom go to the Run Blog.
