Nashville and this special venue provide a unique backdrop for us to gather together as core stakeholders in Kingdom Advisors, accelerating this growing specialty of biblically wise financial advice. The Forum offers you the opportunity to fellowship with like-minded peers, hear significant updates and provide input on key initiatives at Kingdom Advisors, and also be encouraged spiritually and professionally.

We are thrilled to also host optional events before and after the Forum to enrich your time in Nashville and create additional meaningful time with your spouse and your peers. Optional tours of the Ryman Auditorium and/or Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as well as a trip to the Grand Ole Opry, are all available to you. We look forward to being with you and your spouse in October!

Thursday Afternoon Options for Champions and Spouses

Ryman Auditorium Tour

The Ryman was first built in the late 1880s by prominent Nashville businessman Thomas G. Ryman for the purpose of having a place where all people could gather and worship. In the 1920s the Ryman became known as “the Carnegie of the South”, hosting traveling acts including John Philip Sousa, Roy Rogers, Harry Houdini, Charlie Chaplin, and Bob Hope. The Grand Ole Opry put down roots there in 1943, and the live radio and TV show brought artists like Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Minnie Pearl, and Patsy Cline for 31 years. The Opry changed venues in the 1970s, but the Ryman still hosts shows and artists today and is known as one of the best performance halls in the world. The tour lasts approximately one hour and 30 minutes. It includes a backstage tour of the dressing rooms, a photo opportunity on the stage, and time to tour the auditorium self-guided. For more information, visit the Ryman Auditorium’s website. Champions and spouses taking the Ryman Auditorium tour will pick up their tickets at the KA registration desk in the lobby of the Omni Nashville Hotel when they check in to the Forum. Taking this tour will require walking ½ mile from the hotel to the Ryman Auditorium.

Spouses taking the tour will meet at 10:30am on Friday in the lobby of the Country Music Hall of Fame and will then hop on the trolley across the street.


Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage

The Hermitage was once home to the 7th U.S. President, Andrew Jackson, from 1804 until his death in 1845, and is now a national historic landmark. Costumed interpreters lead visitors through the mansion, in which over 85% of the objects are original to Jackson’s lifetime. On the acres surrounding the mansion are the log homes where the enslaved community lived and where the Jackson family first settled. A multimedia player is included in the tour, so guests can access period images, maps of the property, and an interactive timeline. The tour also includes a horse-drawn wagon ride through the 1,000-acre cotton plantation, with a guide describing life for Andrew Jackson, his family, and the enslaved community. Learn more about The Hermitage. Spouses visiting The Hermitage will meet in the lobby of the Omni and will Uber with a KA staff member from the Omni to The Hermitage and back. It takes approximately 30 minutes to get from the Omni to The Hermitage. Spouses are encouraged to eat lunch before meeting at 12:00pm.



Friday Night Add-on Event: Dinner and the Grand Ole Opry

Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic lineup of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists in each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist’s musical style. Artists for the October 18th evening show have not been announced yet, but lineups of upcoming shows and more information can be viewed here. After the show, Champions and their spouses will enjoy a backstage tour of the Opry before departing for the Omni. Champions and spouses attending the optional Grand Ole Opry show will have dinner beforehand at the Country Music Hall of Fame and will travel by bus from the Omni Nashville Hotel to the Grand Ole Opry House and back.
