2019 Workshops

21st Century Issues: It Takes More Faith to Believe Evolution

3/9/2019 8:00 - 9:15 a.m. Room: WC 214

Having established the fact that evolution is not science, we will consider which theory is most consistent with known scientific facts and therefore requires the least faith. Is the world we live in evolving or decaying? The answer to this question may surprise many attendees. This is usually a lively discussion

21st Century Issues: Evolution is Not Scientific

3/3/2018

Evolution is not scientific. It is a philosophy just like Plato etc. By the way it is not a religion because it does not address the existence of god. In this workshop I will demonstrate how you can prove to children and adults that evolution is not scientific. This is an interesting and persuasive debate which one can do anywhere.

2017 Workshops

Children - Elementary: Power of Unintentional Teaching

3/4/2017

Unintentional teaching: is the thing we teach without trying or which we did not mean to teach. An example would be when a teacher asks, “Who created the world?” A student raises his hand and when called upon he says, “Jesus.” The teacher responds, “No” and calls on the next student who answers, “God.” Teacher says, “Yes.” and proceeds’ with the lesson. That teacher has unintentionally taught the children that Jesus is not God and did not create the world. Another example of unintentional teaching is when the teacher tells the children: “Eve ate the forbidden fruit” while holding a picture of a woman with an apple in her hand. Even though the teacher did not mean to, the children will leave the class sure that Eve ate an apple when she sinned because they saw it in the picture. This is how so many of our children become so confused and decide that the stories in the Bible are not true because they are “full of inconsistencies.” We need to take the time to make sure that our intentional teaching and our unintentional teaching line up and are consistent. I have many more examples like these two and principles to avoid unintentional inconsistencies in our teaching and even how to use the power of unintentional teaching to teach our students lessons they will never forget.

Christian Education: Power of a Question

3/4/2017

In this workshop we will look at the power of a question in the classroom and in life. We will also look at how Jesus used questions in His ministry. We will see how a question has the power to avoid arguments, maintain classroom discipline, and gain cooperation from those that oppose us.

2016 Workshops

Counseling: Biblical Answer to Grief

3/5/2016

Grief is a hard emotion to control and has crippled many people for many years. Yet Jesus gave his disciples an answer, in John chapters 14-17. We can experience this relief too. In this workshop we will look at real life examples of people who have been delivered from the pain and tyranny of over whelming grief.
