Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Defending the Christian Faith: Dinosaurs and the Bible
Dinosaurs are probably used more than anything to convince children and even adults that the Bible is not true and that you have to believe in millions of years. Sadly, many people think that the Bible has nothing to do with dinosaurs. However, once you accept the true history of the world as given in the Bible (and particularly the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis), you can easily understand dinosaurs … and thus correctly interpret the evidence from the fossils to correctly understand dinosaurs. Evolutionists speak of an “age of dinosaurs” over millions of years, but in this session, we will talk about the five ages of dinosaurs—but they have nothing to do with millions of years! 
Defending the Christian Faith: The Origin of "Races"
Because much of the church has adopted the secular world's teachings regarding the different "races" and has not accepted the Biblical view, most Christians have lost a vital truth concerning the Scriptural teaching on the two spiritual races (but only one physical race), as opposed to the false idea of different biological races. This discussion will cover such intriguing topics as: the origin of so called "races," skin "color" (is there really more than one color?), "inter-racial" marriage, the curse of Ham, the devastating effects of racism in the culture and the church. There is only one race-the human race! And we are all descendants of one man: Adam.

Defending the Christian Faith: Learning to Think Biblically 
Many people have the idea that the battle between Christianity and humanism (or creation and evolution) is a battle over "facts." However, it's not that Christians need more facts than non-Christians to supposedly win the argument, for the real battle is actually over the interpretation of the same facts. Until Christians understand that everyone has the same facts but different interpretations of those facts (based upon different presuppositions or biases), they will not be successful in learning how to defend the Christian faith and think in a true Biblical manner. It's very possible you will never think the same way about this world after attending this workshop.
Defending the Christian Faith: Fossils and the Flood

Most people have the erroneous idea that fossils were laid down over millions of years in numerous sedimentary strata that we find over the earth’s surface. In this session, however, you’ll learn why fossils i.e., dead things, could not have been formed before Adam sinned. Also, you’ll discover how the Flood provides the best explanation for what we observe in the fossil record over the earth. In addition, evidences consistent with a young earth will be shared.

Genesis of a Legacy: Raising Godly Children
In this discussion, Ken Ham will give his testimony about his own upbringing in helping parents understand the importance of training children from a truly Biblical foundation. Ken will also give his answers to such questions as: should students attend public schools, is there a case for home schooling, etc.?

Genesis: Key to Rebuilding the Foundation in Family and Culture

Most people have the erroneous idea that the Bible is just a book of religion, morality and salvation. But the Bible is much more: it's also a book of history, and deals with the "big picture" aspects of every area of reality, including geology, astronomy, biology, anthropology, physics, chemistry and so on. The key to developing a Christian world-view and rebuilding the Biblical foundation that has been so undermined in our culture, is to use the Bible's history-encompassing geology, astronomy, biology, etc.-as a pair of Biblical glasses. The Bible's history can be used to connect the past to the present, and that enables us to correctly interpret the scientific evidence of the present so we can then use observational science to confirm the Biblical interpretation. This same foundation of history is also foundation to understanding of the Gospel, Christian morality, etc. Moral issues such as abortion, gay marriage and so on are all a part of this discussion. Learn the foundational reasons as to why we see the decline of Christianity and the collapse of Christian morality in this culture ... and how to deal with this.

Why Won't They Listen? How to Reach Today's Culture

Most evangelistic programs today and most missionaries and evangelists do not see Genesis as a key part in reaching people with the Gospel. In these times, however, an understanding of the history in Genesis (e.g., the origin of sin) is foundational to a full understanding of the Gospel message. Also, realizing how our culture now thinks (and has changed in its thinking) in relation to earth history is a key to know how people should be approached in presenting the Gospel. To reach today's culture with the Gospel (including America, which has been the greatest Christian nation on earth), Christians need to understand the foundational change that has occurred in the culture and thus a need to use "creation evangelism" if we're going to be successful in reaching people with the Gospel (and also its message of Christian morality).

Six Days - or Millions of Years?
The Bible states that if Christ be not raised from the dead, our faith is in vain: of course, it doesn't say that if you refuse to believe in six literal days of creation our faith is in vain. While it's true that people can believe in millions of years of earth history and reject the six literal days of Creation and still be born-again Christians, the rejection of six days and a belief in millions of years (so prevalent today in the church and with its Christian leaders), has been a key factor in undermining biblical authority that has led to a loss of Christian morality in the culture. This discussion will challenge people to see the "big picture issue": It is not just a battle about the age of the earth or the days of creation, but ultimately a battle over the authority and accuracy of the Word of God.

Understanding a Loving God in a World of Death and Suffering
Learning how to answer the question of how Christians can believe in a loving God amidst a world of death suffering and disease.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Ken Ham and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
