Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Dr. Simon has over fifteen years of experience in creating training seminars and workshops for schools, churches, and teachers. A brief list of training seminars is provided below. Each seminar can be uniquely crafted with instructional learning to achieve the specific and unique objectives for your group.

The seminars focus on unique topics designed to enable teachers to bring their subjects alive through envisioning them to present history as a means to understand the trends and movements of world powers that have defined history from the past, through the present, and into the future. These seminars blend together unique and sometimes untouched aspects of history, biblical worldview and statesmanship.

The Grand Strategy of History

Learn how to present history using a narrative approach that focuses on the strategic movements in political, economic, and intellectual power in the light of God’s sovereign and providential unfolding of liberty and freedom. Particular emphasis is placed on training teachers to study and present history with a distinctly Christian historiography that enables greater insight and discernment of the historical narrative.

A History of Power in the Middle East

The seminar provides an integrated spiritual, political, and cultural story of the Middle East from the earliest of civilizations to modern world empires that reveals the struggle for survival, legitimacy, and hegemony. The main objective of this seminar will be to understand the overarching struggle for power that has dominated the Middle East, with particular emphasis on how spiritual and temporal forces have driven rulers and nations in this epic struggle through the ages.

The Rise and Fall of the European Great Powers

The European story is central to understanding the development of modern and post-modern institutions of society and culture. The seminar places emphasis on being able to convey principal themes of the European great powers, namely their cultural, economic, political, and social developments that have historically and still presently play a fundamental role in world affairs.

The Primacy of Power and the Clash of Civilizations

Understanding the nature of world power is paramount to developing a keen sense of discernment concerning the direction of current world events. This seminar will provide an understanding of world affairs as they have emerged from the fall of the Berlin Wall in the post-Cold War era, along with the subsequent shifts in world power at the beginning of the 21st century.

The Making of History & the Movement of Power: Analyzing 21st Century World Affairs

The attacks of September 11, 2001 were a defining moment for 21st Century that shocked the U.S. into the realization that its vision of a post-Cold War movement of democracy and globalization was in jeopardy. The attacks launched new movement in foreign policy that sought to stamp out Islamic terrorism and to establish a democratic process in parts of the Middle East. This seminar will focus on dramatic changes in U.S. foreign policy following 9/11 and identify the key issues in the ongoing quest for power and security in the 21st century.

How to Develop Discernment of Current Events

Much of the next generation today is far more concerned with pop-culture issues than issues pertaining to government and the real problems facing the world. This seminar provides a both a challenge and practical instruction in cultivating knowledge, understanding and wisdom pertaining to current social and political affairs.

The Substance of Christian Statesmanship

This seminar defines a distinct set of Christian statesmanship characteristics that will enable the teacher to more effectively lead their students in preparation for cultural engagement. Characteristics of statesmanship include the development of Christian character, identity, values, and worldview, along with the pursuit of a biblically based vision and mission that enables students to effectively engage the world while remaining distinct from the world.

The Prophet Daniel as the Statesmanship Archetype

This seminar examines Daniel’s example of intimacy with the Lord and intelligence of his world, which provides many principles and lessons necessary to regain Christian influence in society. Daniel’s gifted yet disciplined intelligence gained him an influential reputation before kings and courts, granting him the opportunity to discern and declare emerging shifts in world power that would later contribute towards a return to liberty for God’s people in exile.

Mould's Bio

Dr. Simon Mould is the Head of the History and Government Department at Christ Church Academy, a classical Christian cooperative home school in Kirkland, Washington.   Having taught for over sixteen years, Simon saw the need to better serve other home school parents by providing curriculum that enables them to apply their Christian history and worldview to their ability to understand and discern international affairs and the global challenges of the 21st Century.

Simon was born, raised and educated in England, but it was not until he studied history and government in Virginia that he developed a passion for the story of liberty and freedom that had ultimately come to fruition here in the new world. Stirred by this vision, Simon became keen to restore interest in England's, sometime precarious history that also is strongly linked with Christianity, especially following the Reformation period. Understandably, much of the history we as home school parents must emphasize is the Christian history of America. Yet in addition, there is great value in continuing to study the historical European drama where Christianity and Enlightenment ideas intersect and shaped modern Europe from the mid-17th century through to the 21st century. Such historical study helps us understand how and why we have arrived in the secular and postmodern era of today.

Simon has also taught extensively on 20th Century world history. Much of this interest was fostered by his close relationship to his grandparents. He often retells stories of his grandfather who served on five fronts in World War II, being rescued from Dunkirk, served the "Desert Rats" across North Africa, fought the Japanese in Burma and finished the war in Iraq. Other close family members also served in British military intelligence. Today, Simon also serves the International Churchill Centre, which carries a vision to prepare a new generation of statesmen and women called to preserve liberty by using the example of the British wartime Primeminister, Sir Winston Churchill.

Simon is married to his American wife, Sarah and has three children, William, Abigail and George. As a family living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, they enjoy adventures in the great outdoors, fishing, hunting, camping and hiking together in the Cascade mountains. Simon and Sarah have much international missions and teaching experience with Simon having lived in England for 21 years, and between them they have taught numerous teacher and worldview training seminars in Kenya, Romania, Germany, France, Nicaragua, and Cambodia.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Simon Mould 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.
