Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Dad’s - - - It’s Time!
This powerful, straight-forward, biblically grounded talk Carl challenges men to stand up and be the spiritual leaders Christ has called them to be. No more abdicating that responsibility to the world, the church or anybody else. Dads, you are called to educate and train your children! Carl will identify the tools being used to destroy families and then show how to overcome those attacks. The Lord’s pattern is that the man be the head of the home and be the provider, protector and priest of the family…and, raise children in the fear and admonition of the Lord!

How To Give Answers to Lucy, Ida and Ardi, Our Supposed Evolutionary Ancestors!
In today's culture we are inundated with the message that man evolved over millions of years. Our school systems, television programs, movies and even music push this message constantly. How about we Christians do something radical. How about we look at what the ‘evidence’ really shows and teach our children critical thinking skills? Using information from only secular sources Carl will show you and your children how to give answers to the supposed evolutionary human ‘ancestors’. This includes the world famous, "Lucy". When we look beyond the “veneer” at what the actual evidence really shows, you will be surprised! We can and need to have answers to these issues today.

Genesis Matters!
This talk is vital to understanding why the book of Genesis is so important to the issues we are dealing with in the world today. In a culture where we are losing so many young people who are raised in the church we need to figure out what the causes are. If you don’t know “when” and “why” we are losing them, we can never figure out a “how” to solve the problem. Using research done on 20 years old’s who were raised in the conservative church and who have walked away Carl will show “when” and “why” and then propose a “how” to overcome this serious problem.

FUNSHOP: Jurassic Park or Jesus: Who Knows More?
Ask this question in the church today and almost every Christian will ‘say’ Jesus! The only problem is that when asked specific questions about dinosaurs Christians will answer with a ‘Jurassic Park’ mentality! Using clips from the wildly popular ‘Jurassic Park’ movies Carl shares what is being taught in the movies but then contrasts it with what the Bible teaches and science really shows. This is a very powerful multi-media presentation that will help all to differentiate between ‘fact’ and ‘fiction’!

Human Evolution: Is That All You Got?
In our world today we’re inundated with the message that man evolved over millions of years. Our school systems, television programs, movies and even music push this message on us constantly. But, what does the ‘evidence’ really show? Using information from the ‘Revealing the Link’ website Carl will discuss the supposed evolutionary ‘ancestors’ used there to ‘prove’ human evolution. This includes the world famous, Lucy. Once we look beyond the ‘veneer’ at what the actual evidence really shows, you may be surprised!

Dinosaurs, Fossils and the ‘Real’ Lost World
When we start from the Scriptures as real history, we will understand the world around us in a very different manner. Dinosaurs are one of the major tools the secular world uses to train children into believing the world is millions of years old. In this talk we will start with the Bible to answer common questions such as: Does the Bible talk about dinosaurs? Why don’t we find the word dinosaur in the Bible? Did dinosaurs go on the ark and if so how did they fit? Don’t dinosaurs prove the earth is millions of years old? What happened to the dinosaurs?

Importance of a Biblical Worldview & Giving Reasons for Hope
Using 1 Peter 3:13-16 Carl shares the ‘Who’, ‘What’, ‘How’ and ‘Why’ it is imperative that Christians take a biblical worldview to give true HOPE. It is only then that we can truly have hope and offer hope to the lost.

Evangelism 101: 10 Things a Christian Can Learn About Evangelism, From an Atheist!
If we want to reach the world today with the Gospel we’re going to have as many tools at our disposal as possible. One tool that every one of us can use is … conversation! In this talk Carl uses clips from a popular TV program from Showtime featuring the entertainers Penn and Teller attacking Christianity and the Bible. Carl shows how and how NOT to answer the attacks leveled against Christians. The conclusion is one not soon forgotten where the  ‘power of conversation ‘ is seen first hand.

Where Did Cain Get His Wife? (And Answers to Other Questions on “Races”!)
“What you believe about where you come from will impact the way that you live your life today!” This is one of the most important talks that Carl gives today. If we truly want to solve the problem of racism there is only one way, starting with the Word of God. For too long Christians have said Jesus with their lips but lived their lives with an anti-biblical mindset. There is no clearer example than how we, Christians, have and are dealing with this issue. Here he will shed light from God’s Word and from real science on the truth about so-called “races”. What does ‘science’ really say about this issue? More importantly, what does God’s Word say? This is a study that is transforming lives by giving exciting answers from Genesis! Until we, Christians, can get this issue right we can never expect non-Christians to deal with it appropriately.

Kerby's Bio

Carl’s passion is to proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible and to engage the minds and hearts of believers and unbelievers in today’s culture so that they may experience the realities of the Word of God. This happens every time Carl speaks. Whether he speaks to youth or adults, large or small crowds, churches or schools, Carl has a way of connecting with almost everybody; and that is one of the reasons he is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad. He has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico the Philippines and Wales just to name a few. Carl was a founding Board Member of Answers in Genesis for 10 years and served there for over 15 years before stepping out in faith to become President and Founder of Reasons for Hope. Though Carl has played many roles in his life including air-traffic controller at O’Hare International Airport and son of a professional wrestler, his most cherished accomplishment is his marriage to his wife Masami for over 28 years and his role as father to his daughter Alisa and his son Carl, Jr., as well as grandfather to his grandson Trey.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Carl Kerby 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.
